Often when there is a question or posting about rattan it seems there are many helpful answers from TC members with great rattan sets.
It would be great to see the pix in a thread!

Please post your vintage rattan pix and stories, anything colonial, machine age, deco, Frankl, 1970's, to reproductions.

Purchased this recently. Still looking for a mate. I learned from a book that Tiki Skip recommended that rattan is a climbing palm and it's outer covering is natural silicone. Doesn't need painting or treatment.

Al,

Was that bottle of Beam sitting under your Christmas in the photo above a bribe for Santa?

I found this rattan set in Quakertown PA with a hideaous "country" upholstery, I invested in some quality barkcloth from Hawaii and commissioned the skills of Velveteen Lounge to work her magic. The next week I found the big high back chair at a yard sale for $10 and had a round cushion made for it to match the rest.

Here's my couple of pieces. Man! those bright lights for pic taking sure do kill the mood. Two Calif-Asia lounge chairs and a fish trap I think might be PNG but I could be wrong on that. Thanks

Awesome stuff!

I wanted to slip in the difference between Bamboo and Rattan. Most of the "general public" don't know. Always calling Rattan, Bamboo. ( drives me nuts )

This is a Bamboo couch. Big diameters. Usually 4" and bigger. Hollow interior with pronounced nodes ( knots). From the Grass family. Does not bend when dry.



Rattan usually is 1.5" or smaller. Solid. A vine from the wood family. Bends easy when wet and a little harder when dry.

MAhalo for letting me vent. On with the Rattan show!

Blackfish, it's all wonderful but that fan-arm living room set is so beautiful it made me want to cry.

Couldn't you just see Kate reclining on your couch? Here she is doing a nice impersonation of your Clam Shell set.



And I agree with Peg. That set is spectacular. So you live on the Emerald Coast huh? Whereabouts? And when will cocktails be ready?
