Rattan is a naturally renewable palm that grows in the tropical regions of Africa, Asia and Australasia, and is used for furniture, handicrafts, and building material among others. Rattan continues to be an invaluable part of rural people’s livelihoods in South and Southeast Asia.
Rattan belongs to the palm family (Arecales or Palmea) and is found from sea level up to 3,000 m. Around 600 species and 13 genera of rattan are known.
Although most rattan species are native to the tropical regions of Africa, Asia, and Australia, there is a large variety in their distribution.
Commercially-used rattan usually grows in hilly tropical areas, with a mean annual temperature of 25° C and an annual rainfall of -2,000 mm. As a result, the main area for rattan production is in the tropical regions of South and Southeast Asia.
There are different types of rattan palms, such as high or low climbers, single stemmed or clustered rattan species. Some have very short and underground stems. Several rattan species are known to reach lengths of 100m.
Rattan sheaths have spines for protection, along with ‘whips’ that are also covered with spines. These play a major role in supporting the rattan as it grows over trees and other plants in the rainforest.
The majority of the world’s rattans are found in Indonesia’s forests, with the rest of the world’s supply provided by the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam and Bangladesh among others.
Almost all the rattan is collected from tropical rainforests. Because of deforestation (e.g. forest conversion to other land uses), rattan populations havehas decreased over the last few decades and there is now a shortage of supply.
Rattan is an attractive resource because it is easier to harvest than timber, and is also easier to transport, while and it also grows faster than trees.
Rattan canes are cut in the forest and are partially processed before being sold. Canes with small diameters are dried in the sun and often smoked using sulphur. Large canes are boiled in oil to make them dry and to protect them from insects.
Rattan is a growing, US$4 billion per year, industry.
Village communities in Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam rely heavily on the rattan trade. Sales account for up to 50 % of cash income in villages, making rattan a major contributor to poverty alleviation in rural areas.
Vietnam is an important exporter of finished rattan products with almost 60% of its total production going to the European Union in 2005.
Rattan harvesting and processing provides an alternatives to logging timber in areas where forests are scarce.
In fact, rattan grows best under some sort of tree cover including secondary forest, fruit orchards, tree plantations or rubber estates. As a result rattan planting indirectly protects tree cover, along with forests.
Some rattan species are appropriate for small-scale cultivation under fruit trees or in rubber gardens. This allows smallholders to earn extra money on small areas of land.
By buying rattan from us, you will be directly supporting the trade of the developing countries which will bring a better chance in life for them.

You may have finally gotten your hands on a coveted bar cart, but that doesn’t mean this popular furniture item will add instant style cred to your living space. A drinks trolley will only ooze fun and luxury if it is well stocked and styled.
A bar cart, at its essence, is a working space. It’s a place where you should be able to whip up a quick cocktail should the opportunity arise. That means it’s an item that needs to perfectly balance form and function. So avoid going overboard with decoration and instead focus on items that are both aesthetically pleasing and useful.
Even the best bar carts on the market will need a little styling magic.

Looking for reupholstery to change the look of your home? We will be able to assist you.
Reupholstering your old grubby sofa can perform wonders. It involves recovering or improving the look of furniture while restoring its original form. You can change the sofa color, material and design completely to match your latest wall color or room decoration. Reupholstering not only gives you the opportunity to choose your own material according to your needs and preference but also provides an option to economize on your budget.
You may want to leave your sofa the way it is for as long as you can, but when is it time to give it a face lift?
Type. Your sofa could be an antique piece of furniture or one that carries a sentimental value. This type of sofa is hard to replace as it has unique craftsmanship and features that modern furniture lacks. Many of such sofas come with either plain or elaborately carved frames made of durable wood which is not only valuable but also irreplaceable.
Quality. The quality of your sofa is another factor that deserves consideration. If you have splurged on your sofa but need to cover an unmovable stain, it is logical to get it upholstered instead of replacing it with a new one. Usually, older furniture is considered high quality as it has heavy hardwood frames, high density foam or cotton padding and eight-way, hand-tied coil springs that enhance its durability and increase its value. On the other hand, newer furniture of good quality contains a built-in mechanism made of hardwood and has solid features like maple framework and eight-way hand-tied springs.
Comfort level and stability. The comfort level depends on the softness or springiness of sofa seat, its height, its material, the width of the seat, the height of the headrest and its stability. If you feel safe and enjoy sitting on your sofa all these while, upholstering it may seem more sensible than replacing it if the fabric or leather is stained or discolored due to age. Feeling comfortable also translates to accepting your sofa as a distinctive part of the room.
Cost. As a general rule of thumb, reupholstering a piece of furniture costs about SGD $1200 and above. However, the exact cost depends on the type of fabric to be replaced and any structural repairs needed to be performed by an upholsterer. Perform comparison shopping by asking for quotes to gauge the cost of upholstering in order to determine whether upholstering is a better option.

We’re glad to see a familiar favourite – rattan furniture – in the limelight again. Being a natural material, the vine is used to make furniture because of its great strength and durability.
However, always keep rattan pieces away from strong sunlight and rain, as these elements can weaken its fibres. Humidity is fine though, as rattan grows in this climate.
To keep rattan pieces in tip-top condition, we advise brushing them now and then to keep them free from dust and mildew, which can cause the fibre to decay. Then, wipe them down with a soft cloth dampened with soap suds made with dishwashing liquid (to avoid over-wetting the rattan). Use a toothbrush to get into the cracks and crevices.
Always distribute weight evenly on the seat; never kneel or step on the seat as the concentrated weight will exert unnecessary pressure on the strands. Spills should be taken care of immediately before they harden or stain, by wiping with a sponge wrung from sudsy water. If you spot mould or mildew growing on your rattan furniture, simply clean with warm soapy water. Then, rinse well and dry it outdoors.
To restore dry, cracked, or split rattan, apply boiled linseed oil with a brush. When the furniture won’t absorb any more oil, wipe it clean with a soft cloth. Allow it to dry or harden before using the furniture piece.
Now that tropical interiors are making its rounds in home decor, it’s official: rattan is cool again. Once commonly associated with your grandma or only with outdoor furnishings, the natural material delivers laidback, resort charm in spades. With everyone from IKEA to luxe furniture brands on board the rattan train, it’s safe to say it’s back and bolder than ever.
A brief history on rattan Quietly, rattan has remarkably stood the test of time. Its history goes way back; the Pharaohs of ancient Egypt were buried with wicker furniture. Even the Roman empire were big on rattan furnishings too. In Asia, raw rattan largely came from Indonesia and were shaped into furniture by craftsmen in China; due to its proximity to both, Singapore was said to be Southeast Asia’s biggest exporter for rattan furniture. Eventually, the booming trade and colonists in Asia brought rattan to America and Europe.
Rattan revived Its popularity may have briefly waned, but like the seventies, you’re now seeing it everywhere again . Want to come home to a lush, tropical retreat? Fill your abode with plants, global accents and natural materials like bamboo, and of course rattan. With its current, modern designs, you’d have no problem fitting rattan in your home regardless of your home design.
See how you can incorporate it into your home or personal style below…
Pink is one of those colors that’s difficult to work with. It got a reputation for being too girly, associated with fairy tales and princesses but, in fact, it’s a lot more versatile than that. There are many different shades of pink and they each transmit a certain look and feeling. So, when you think about it, a pink sofa in the living room is not such a bad idea. It can actually be an unexpected and quirky feature that will tie everything together in a unique way.
I really like how fresh this pink sofa looks here, surrounded by warm, neutral colors and complemented by those diverse accent pillows. A perfect example showing how sometimes it’s worth being bold.
Too much pink is usually disturbing. A much better alternative is to have a single pink element in the room such as this velvet sofa. Then it becomes a focal point for the room and stands out without making it seem like you’re trying too hard.
In an eclectic and colorful living room, a pink sofa can fit perfectly without looking out of place. Throw in some abstract artwork, some patterned accent pillows and a striped area rug and feel free to improvise.
Even a light and feminine shade of pink can look good in a living room defined by dark wood, neutral colors, exposed bricks and subtle industrial touches. In fact, the pink sofa balances out all the other elements.
But, as we’ve already mentioned, there are numerous different shades of pink to take into consideration. Some are actually closer to neutrals than to other vibrant colors. Take this sofa for example. It may be pink but it’s not exactly super bold or dramatic.
You can coordinate the sofa with other elements in the room so it doesn’t look out of place. For example, you can have matching artwork, an area rug, a lampshade, etc. Keep the rest of the elements neutrals however.
Some shades of pink are so beautiful you can’t take your eyes off them. This mesmerizing sofa works perfectly in combination with the black and white polka dot rug. What a successful combo!
Don’t always expect a pink sofa to be the center of attention in the living room. It’s possible for the sofa to be a lot less striking than other accent details featuring colors that are a lot ore vibrant.
Similarly, this pale shade of pink is outshone by the vibrant green accents. It does look beautiful in this setting, especially because of the brown accents and all the natural colors.
On the other hand, when a bold color is combined with other equally vibrant shades it doesn’t stand out that much and instead shares its importance with all the other elements. This is a really beautiful example.
In a living room décor that’s so harmoniously composed, a more vibrant shade of pink would have looked less beautiful than this light tone. It’s also a matter of texture. Everything seems to be in perfect sync, including the fabric sofa, the area rug, the lampshades and the rest of the furniture and colors.
By comparison, the much deeper and darker shade of pink is a welcomed focal point in this case, considering the whitewashed brick walls, the flooring and everything else that contributes to a casual and eclectic look.
Although the rug seems to be the main attraction in this living room, the sofa and ottomans don’t lack flair either. In fact, the color alone is enough to make them stand out. In this eclectic setting, all these elements fit naturally.
This is a similar situation where there are many other colorful and eye-catching elements in the room besides the pink sofa. The transparent lucite coffee table is an interesting feature.
If you opt for two sofas instead of just one, the color you choose for them should be less striking than in the case of a single accent piece.
Another valid option is to combine two distinct and equally vibrant colors like pink and purple in this case. The wooden flooring and the black coffee table and the perfect elements to establish a balance here.
If you want pink to be a delicate, feminine color in your home, then emphasize these details through shape, texture and other elements. This curved sectional combined with the round table and white curtains is a good example to follow.
This is a tasteful color combination enhanced by the fact that texture also plays an important role in the overall décor. The velvety sofa, the fireplace surround and, of course, the flooring are all elements contributing to this result.
Coordinate the sofa with the curtains to obtain a cohesive design. This would turn both elements into focal points if they feature the same vibrant color such as in this case. By comparison, all the other colors will blend in.
There are other ways to integrate a brightly-colored sofa into a living room. For example, it can coordinate with the area rug and even with a few accents in the kitchen if it’s an open floor plan.
Similarly, the sofa can match the color of the kitchen backsplash in order to create a visual connection between the two areas that share the same floor plan.
But what if the pink you’ve chosen for the sofa is not the only bold color in the room? Actually, two strong colors can be put together as long a they don’t clash. Blue seems to be a good choice in this case.
This is a similar case but the shades are a bit different and less vibrant. All the walls and the ceiling were painted blue and this changes the dynamic of the space a little bit.
The blue and pink combination is beautiful and one of these two colors can be stronger than the other. Even, the harmony is maintained. The aqua accents also bring in the ocean and the clear sky.
But let’s keep in mind that a sofa can also be put in other spaces apart from the living room. For example, a small sofa can be a lovely accent piece for a bedroom in which case a splash of color is a welcomed detail.
Buying one is a big decision, and not just because it’s pricey. Here’s how to find a keeper that’s incredibly well-made, sink-inand-stay comfortable, and so beautiful, it makes the room.
Signature look: Mad Men–esque: low profile, high back, and squared arms.
Pros: Clean lines, good back support.
Cons: Too low for some people’s comfort.
Watch out for: Overstuffed cushions. “The structured design can make for a firmer sit,” says furniture design consultant Marissa Brown.
Signature look: Upright and elegant, thanks to its curves and high arms. Also known as a Chippendale.
Pros: The tight back makes you sit up straight.
Cons: The shallow seat isn’t comfy for tall people—or for snuggling.
Watch out for: Wonky proportions. If the seat is nice and deep, the back can be too high.
English Roll Arm
Signature look: Also called a Bridgewater, it’s low and louche.
Pros: Soft arms and cushions; tilted at an inviting angle.
Cons: Leaving its embrace can be (physically) challenging.
Watch out for: Cheap assembly. “Low-end makers slap the arms on the outside,” rather than building them into the frame, says Brown.
Signature look: Boxy but tailored. The back and arms are always the same height, the cushions firm.
Pros: Stylish, sometimes slightly feminine lines; good for small spaces.
Cons: The arms tend to be thin and hard. Single-seat cushions look sleek, but over time they may start to “smile” (lift on the ends and sag in the center). The fix: Buy a sofa with one you can flip, that’s anchored by little hooks on the sides or back.
Watch out for: Awkward arm heights. “If they’re too high, it’s hard to find side tables that work,”
Signature look: At home in a library, with its leather-bound kin. Often tufted, with rolled arms the same height as the back, and a tight back and seats.
Pros: Formal yet remarkably cozy.
Cons: BYO pillow for napping.
Watch out for: Appropriate upholstery. “These look best in stiff materials like leather, heavy linen, or velvet,” Gambrel says.
Signature look: Loose cushions; the back ones form a T shape over rolled sock arms.
Pros: Versatile and great for stretching out, with low arms that double as headrests.
Cons: Less statement-making than the others.
Watch out for: Fussy details. “I’d never skirt a Lawson,” Gambrel says. “That looks too traditional.”
2018’s sofa scene is indicating a major shift toward the opulent. Plump, curvy silhouettes, deep jewel tones, and luxe materials are making a big splash in living rooms everywhere. And while the luxury look may seem reserved for the 1 percent among us, these trendy sofa looks are achievable for us Regular Joes, too.
We’ve broken down the latest sofa trends by style, color, and material. We’re excited to show you what’s hot for 2018 – and how to get the look yourself.
This year we’re seeing more and more sofas with plump, overstuffed silhouettes and plenty of space to kick back and relax. The exposed legs and delicate designs of Mid-century sofas and settees are still mega-popular, but we’re also seeing a trend toward indulgent over-sized frames, chaise sectionals, and low, curvy profiles.
Comfy & Cozy
Plush cushions and over-sized chaise sectionals are some of 2018’s top trends in living room furniture. Large, plump cushions and king-sized silhouettes are all the rage right now … And this means plenty of comfort and relaxation for you.
Sofas with curvy, rounded edges are having a major moment in 2018. Traditional ’70s colors such as mustard, sage, and persimmon lend a healthy dose of vintage flair. To keep your space anchored in the modern era, choose of-the-moment shades like cobalt blue or millennial pink.
If you’re a fan of the Mid-century aesthetic, fear not – this vintage-inspired trend isn’t going anywhere. Clean lines, cushion tufting, and exposed wooden legs are still super-hot in home décor. To bring this look into your own home, look for tuxedo or cabriole-style sofas.
The use of color is one of 2018’s biggest trends when it comes to home design and furniture. From paint and décor to bedding and upholstery, there’s never been a better time to express yourself with your favorite shades.
Deep Jewel Tones
One of the hottest color trends we’ve seen this year is the increased use of bold, rich jewel tones. Deep purples, emerald greens, and shades of blue ranging from teal to sapphire to navy are taking over homes across the globe. A statement sofa is the perfect way to infuse this trend into your own space.
Pretty in Pink
“Millennial pink” was one of 2017’s hottest hues, and we’re happy to report that this flirty, feminine shade is here to stay in 2018. From blush and baby pink to salmon and dusty rose, this trendy tone can make any space feel a little softer, warmer, and sweeter. If pink isn’t quite your thing, we’re also seeing a major trend toward purple-y tones such as lavender and mauve.
Those ’70s Shades
Five years ago, the thought of welcoming back ’70s-inspired colors would have sent most of us into peals of laughter and cries of “yeah, right.” But as it always does, the wheel of style just kept turning … And here we are in 2018 celebrating gold, green, and rusty orange as some of the season’s trendiest shades. Go with an ultra-saturated hue to make a bold statement, or apply the trend more subtly with earthy, muted shades.
It appears that this year’s upholstery trends are skewing toward the luxurious and the detailed. Rich materials such as velvet and leather lend an air of sophistication, while tufted backs and seats create texture and visual interest.
As one of the hottest emerging material trends, velvet has become a year-round staple in closets and common areas alike. No longer reserved for winter months and special occasions, velvet has become an everyday fabric that adds a touch of elegance and opulence to any space.
Bold tufting is one of our favorite trends of the year, and we love how easy it is to incorporate into the living room. Traditional button tufting, vintage-inspired channel tufting, and the ultra-modern all-over look provide a healthy dose of detail and drama.
