How to style a Rattan Emperor Bed

At French Bedroom we have always been a fan of rattan for our French style beds. Rattan is incredibly versatile, at home in both rustic and chic interiors, adding that touch of bohemian relaxation or an air of effortless elegance, when painted in neutral tones. 

Where does rattan come from?

Rattan was first discovered buried with the pharaohs of Ancient Egypt (pre-dating pottery!) There was an abundance of reeds available around the Nile, and the Egyptians soon learned how they became flexible and durable when dried out. This led to rattan being used mainly in basket-weaving, but as its influence spread around the world, it began to take on different forms. Now from rattan beds, to seating, to storage, and everything in between; we love using this material throughout our homes, styling it for all looks and themes.

What makes rattan emperor beds so popular?

Rattan is a timeless material in more ways than one. It is lightweight yet extremely durable, and the plant grows year-round, providing a sustainable source of raw material. It’s also very easy to clean, requiring no more than a little attention and some gentle dusting. So, it’s no wonder rattan is so popular as a French style bed and as furniture in general. Our favourite interior styles blur the lines of rustic and sophisticated with a careful selection of unique, handcrafted pieces to create the perfect fusion of classic and opulent.

How to maintain your rattan emperor bed

To keep your rattan bed frame looking and feeling fresh, simply wipe it regularly with a soft cloth. Beds with rattan headboards can build up dust and other fibres, particularly from bedding. There is no need to use polish or abrasive creams on your luxury rattan bed. To remove any dust or dirt, you can gently brush the frame – either with a bristled duster or with the bristle attachment on your vacuum cleaner. It will allow you to get into any hard-to-reach cracks and crevices which come as standard on woven rattan, and this process will gather any hidden dust.

As an extra special treat for your super king rattan bed, you can apply a treatment of boiled linseed oil once a year, with a brush. When the furniture stops absorbing the oil, gently buff it clean with a soft cloth. Allow it to dry or harden before using your bed again – this will moisturise and protect the natural rattan fibres, ensuring it lasts much longer.

Rattan offers unlimited luxury and comfort, and when simple quick steps are completed on a regular basis, you can feel rest assured that your beautiful new rattan bed will look gorgeous for years to come.

How durable is rattan furniture?

When it comes to furniture, there is something extra special and traditional about choosing a piece made from Rattan. Rattan furniture is the perfect addition to any room in your opulent French style home, whilst also offering a sustainable, eco-friendly furniture option.

Not only is Rattan furniture absolutely stunning to look at – going with almost every style of room; it is also luxurious, sturdy, and durable too.

Rattan has been used in furniture for centuries, due to its incredible durability and dense inner core, making it a key material in furniture construction. It also offers good resistance to moisture, and is a hugely popular choice for outdoor furniture as well as indoor.

Don’t be surprised to see your rattan furniture far outlast fabric alternatives, although it will need care and upkeep to ensure this. Whilst the interwoven finish may bring comfort and luxury to your bedroom, it is important to keep it well maintained to ensure you can enjoy it for many, many years to come.
