Rattan set with floral fabric – Bonacina, 1920

This set, made by the Bonacina factory, has a refined look with its floral fabric. The vintage style makes this set the height of elegance for a charming interior.

At the end of the 19th century in Europe, rattan furniture was all the rage under glass roofs and in winter gardens. This new rattan or bamboo furniture was presented at the major world fairs, contributing to the new taste of the day: the exotic. The first sets were imported from China and Indochina. Production then developed in Europe, notably at Perret & Vibert in France.

The Belle Epoque marked the golden age of rattan. The new urban bourgeois class immediately embraced this decorative, lightweight and practical furniture. Rattan came back into fashion in the second half of the 20th century and, for a time between 1950 and 1980, regained its former grandeur. Today, rattan is more than ever back on the decorative scene for its practicality, elegant simplicity and naturalness.
