Natural rattan set 1920s -1930s
This beautiful natural rattan living room is composed of a bench, two chairs and a table. Its sober color and its flat blade style give it a rare charm. It was made in the years 1920-1930 in France.
Rattan furniture developed in the second half of the nineteenth century, especially under the Second Empire, with the fashion of exoticism. New materials such as bamboo and rattan appeared in decoration and quickly became essential elements. After an eclipse under the Empire and the Restoration, caning reappeared under Napoleon III and was a resounding success. The Second Empire saw the manufacture of caned seats on frames made entirely of rattan. Around 1900, this furniture takes off with the decision of several French manufacturers to import massively the raw materials from China and Indochina to then realize furniture with the taste of the day always lighter and more decorative.
