Friday Finds :: Statement Rattan Chairs

disclosure: This post contains some affiliate links, which means Simplified Bee receives commission if you make a purchase using these links.


Popular in tropical climates, rattan furniture has made its way into our urban, suburban and country homes. Whether used inside or out, rattan furnishings give spaces a breezy, laid-back feel. Most recently, I’ve spotted the durable, lightweight material used for chairs in a variety of styles. I’m sharing a few of my favorite statement rattan chairs today.

The rattan hanging chair is nostalgic for me too because we had one hanging in our home as a child. It was our inside swing.

happy friday!

Awe, summer. With the season just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to spruce up your home for long, sunny days ahead. When looking for stylish, seasonal home furnishings and accessories, a favorite source is Serena & Lily.

There’s even more good news! Until last year’s Hampton’s store opening, you could only purchase Serena & Lily online. I’ve longed to make the trip to see it for myself, but now won’t have to because Serena & Lily opened a new design store here in San Francisco earlier this month. Although, I was unable to attend the grand opening, fellow blogger, Caitlin wrote a beautiful article covering the event. I’m loving the image below that Caitlin took of the new store’s gallery walls.

Palm Springs Mid-Century Modern by Brian Dittmar

It’s that time of year we start thinking about taking a warm weather holiday. Palm Springs has been one of my favorite sun-drenched destinations. The sunny desert community has a wonderful, laid back feel I love. It’s also home to some of the best mid-century architecture and interiors around.

To put us in the mood, today we are touring a beautiful desert vacation getaway San Francisco’s Brian Dittmar designed for his Northern California clients. Fondly referred to as the “Atomic Tiki” house by Brian, it was built in 1965 in the Golf Club Estates section of South Palm Springs and has an unusual Polynesian-style roofline with mid-century interior. The result is colorful, playful and looks like a set from Mad Men. Makes me want to book a trip to Palm Springs today.

My design brief was to make carefully considered, artful and subtle changes that would refresh the interiors while keeping the residence’s original vibe through a mix of mid-century furnishings and pieces with subtle Polynesian references. – Brian Dittmar
