This week I have been mostly looking at…….
DICTIONARY RESULT FOR RATTAN
the thin jointed stems of a palm, used to make furniture.
"a rattan armchair"
the tropical Old World climbing palm which yields rattan, with long, spiny, jointed stems.
I had a request from a potential client on the Cap this week for some Rattan cupboard doors. Contrary to popular belief there are many modern and fresh ways to integrate Rattan into your home without it looking dated.
My family is currently signed up to a local Antibes zero waste programme so I am trying to integrate this philosophy in my work as much as possible as well as seeking out sustainable materials where I can.
Thankfully The good news is, as far as naturally-sourced materials are concerned, rattan is one of the safest from an environmental standpoint. While the palm tree the material is derived from is geographically limited in location, rattan itself is easily renewable, and the impact its sourcing has on the environment is almost negligible.
Rattan here I come!
