Rattan Pendants Are the Light of the Moment (and We Love Them!)

Rattan Pendants Are the Light of the Moment (and We Love Them!)

Rattan pendants are essentially upside down baskets (without handles) with a light in them, and we love them the same anyway. They add undeniable character due to their texture and handmade quality to a home. We love them in pairs over a kitchen island, on their own as a statement chandelier in a bedroom or living room...basically, wherever they land, they're fantastic. Whether you're into the whole boho aesthetic or not, these are worth a look. Consider us obsessed.

Ashley Redmond, Head of Design for popular E-design company Decorist, added instant character to her 500-square-foot tiny "treehouse" with a rattan pendant over her petite dining area.

From Adore Magazine via My Domaine, the open weave of these rattan pendants let's plenty of light through to keep the light and airy feel of the room intact.

Should you have a long island in your kitchen like the one here from Lisa Sherry Interieurs, a pair of rattan pendants directly above it is a great way to add warmth to a space that traditionally feels pretty sterile.

We've always loved this IKEA pendant, and think it looks fantastic in just about every space it inhabits, including this dining room from The Glitter Guide.

Just a hint of texture via the rattan chair and pendant, and chunky throw is enough to take this minimal, pared down bedroom from Domino to a place that feels welcoming and cozy.

Another dining room from The Glitter Guide featuring a minimal rattan pendant light. Here, it bridges the gap between the modern Saarinen-style table and the wholesome wood dining chairs.

Oh yes, House Beautiful! You need quite a voluminous room to support three oversize pendants like these, but if there's a takeaway here is that no matter the color, the natural material pairs wonderfully with a wood table (don't worry about it matching perfectly!).

ACdO's PET lamps are really special—crafted in Chile by wicker artisans, the colorful portion of the pendants are made from PET plastic bottles to address the global problem of waste. Shown here in a kitchen from Planete Deco, the lights look high end and distinctive, all while doing some good.
