THE FIRST IMPRESSION

A more relaxed, yet totally chic replacement for chandeliers, rattan or natural fiber lighting enhances and adds to the first impression of your home, your entryway. For larger spaces, tightly woven rattan chandeliers work like magic, while for smaller spaces, rattan pendants can make your spaces feel cozier, as they add radiance to your entryway while still drawing the eye upward to create the illusion of a taller space. But if you want to add a little extra visual interest to the area, intricately patterned rattan lampshades offer an attractive solution and add a stately presence, which also work well on consoles and shelves.

WHERE FRIENDS & FAMILY GATHER

Living room is the one space where ceilings soar to great heights and this is where some hanging rattan pendants can create a sense of intimacy. The slightly irregular shapes and a handmade touch of each pendant can provide a lovely contrast to the many right angles that usually overpower this space. Moreover, complementing the hues of both metal and wooden furniture, these little thoughtful elements of continuity can make space feel cohesive yet creative.

YOUR PEACE DEN

Nobody wants an overcrowded bedroom but compromising on style seems to be absolutely out of question. Hence, natural fiber lighting can create a serene atmosphere, perfectly appropriate for this relaxing environment. We love the idea of ‘imperfectly perfect’ employed in this personal space and the woven pendant lights can definitely add a warm, laid-back vibe. Playing with the fixture’s scale can also add a sense of drama, keeping the simply furnished room from feeling unfinished.

EVERYONE’S HAPPY PLACE

The epitome of everything cozy, everything light, everything tasty, a dining table or a kitchen breakfast bar is a space that lifts your mood and hence lighting plays a huge role in the same. With a variety of wooden or metal textures throughout the space, the use of natural fiber lighting is a smart choice as it prevents the space from feeling overly styled and gives your eye some rest. Light emitting from its loosely woven strands is the oomph factor you’ll need to host your cozy or lavish dinner meals…

AL FRESCO

We often think of rattan as an outdoorsy material so it makes sense to have some outdoor natural fiber pendant lights and shades with your patio furniture. While it adds to the feeling of spending some time outdoors, it is also great for minimalist decoration and to harmonize a huge space at hand with its warm diffused glow. The best part, the basket weaves of the lighting fixtures can echo in the garden space beyond and with some vintage folding chairs you can accent the organic textures throughout, creating a perfectly undone look.

YOUR WORK HEADQUARTERS

It is important for you to sit and relax while working, meeting or indulging in other work activities in your co-working or personal work quarters. Hence, some decently sized rattan pendants are spectacular in a space like this, which reflects a relaxing ambient which is great for a creative area. While the bulbs inside the rattan fixtures can provide enough light for working, its diffused mood light is great for imagination. An office full of right angles feels quite formal but some fun and offbeat pieces never hurt! Let some natural fiber pendant and floor lights be the hero feature of this space and prevent it from feeling too fussy and predictable.
