rattan schmattan

You all know how much we love vintage finds. And if you don't, well lemme tell you...we do. Why buy new when the used often has so much more to offer? Uniqueness, extra-love, personality, a good story... and yes, "I found it on craigslist" counts because it still makes all your friends jealous. 

As of late, I've especially been having a visual affair with my rattan furniture loves. And yes, I even mean that Florida 70's living room sofa set with the palm frond upholstery rattan. RELAX! In moderation, of course. For those who are interested in a pop of curiosity, rattan is an organic material that plays nicely with others, adding texture and interest to your space. Both used and new are great options. And painted doesn't hurt either! See below for visual proof!

You know those conversations that begin with "when I win the lottery"? Well, I would own a vintage home shop where I wouldn't be concerned about making a living or collecting junk in my already filled apartment (because of course I would have a huge warehouse where I could store an unlimited amount of antique goods and fix things up as I so desire- my own Home Depot, if you will. Also I will need a truck for traveling the country. And did I mention everything will be free? For the good of your homes!)

In the meantime, we'll just continue to enjoy it as a hobby. And if you see something you like, let us know and we'll source it for you! (Just shoot us an email. Rehabitatdesign@gmail.com)
