Rattan lights and lamps made from natural materials such as rattan, can instantly add boho charm to your home’s interior and make a room feel lighter and brighter. It is rich in texture, earthy tones and organically-inspired designs.

‘Woven rattan lighting is very much on-trend at the moment, and remains a staple of any nature-inspired bohemian décor composition – from pendants, to ceiling lights, floor and table lamps, rattan lighting is guaranteed to take an interior up a notch or two’, says Melissa Davidson of The Lighting Warehouse.

Here are three tips on how to best incorporate woven rattan lighting into your home décor scheme for a touch of boho glam:

Rope is dope

A little rope can go a long way – adding raw textural appeal to the overall aesthetic. Take the Amalfi (R1299), and the Pescatore 40cm(R999) and 50cm (R1199) pendants from The Lighting Warehouse for example – both have the wire they are hanging from camouflaged with raw sisal rope for added natural appeal.

Crazy for consistency

It’s true that rattan lights and lamps are an easy way of adding some boho charm to your home’s interiors. However, it is also essential that they compliment the other lighting and décor features in the room. For streamlined consistency, the Napoli range from The Lighting Warehouse for example, comprises single (R999) and 3-light bar (R1299) pendants, a ceiling light (R899), as well as two table lamps: one tripod (R599) and one lantern-style (R499), and a floor lamp (R1699) – taking care of all of your lighting requirements in one, gorgeous range.

A statement piece

Every room needs an attractive focal feature, and large woven rattan lighting is the perfect solution. The Lighting Warehouse’s bell-shaped Pescatore 25019 (R1199), and the pear-shaped Pescatore 25020 (R1499) are ideal for larger rooms with high ceilings – standing as an eye-catching showcase for bohemian charm.

Saved by the bell

Woven rattan lighting comes in a wide variety of shapes, weaves and sizes; however, the most popular is arguably the bell-shaped design. Practical, versatile and offering excellent textural appeal, bell-shaped woven lights are beautiful, but they really come into their own when they are switched on and you can see the beautiful shadows that they make. The Lighting Warehouse offers a wide variety of bell-shaped woven rattan lights, including the Capri Black (R899), Capri Natural (R899), the Portofino (R999), and the Sicily (R899).
