Not seen in such volume since the eighties (I’m sure I’m not the only one who remembers the material from childhood!), rattan has had a resurgence of late but in sleeker, far more stylish forms. And while it’s a look that works fabulously with the tribal trend or beachy interiors, its current incarnation looks equally at home in more refined spaces too.

The Rattan Collective Yami bassinet: Destined for heirloom status, this handmade rattan bassinet not only looks adorable but it’s practical too – the wheels make it easy to move from room to room. $529.
