COMPILED BY Annemarie Meintjes and Lindi Brownell Meiring


Rattan, cane, bamboo, wicker… We just can’t get enough of texture at home right now. VISI has selected 10 pieces for you to keep in mind.

Remember to also take note of these top care tips:

  • Try to keep rattan, cane and wicker furniture out of direct sunlight.
  • If they have to be in a sunny spot, rotate pieces regularly to ensure they are exposed to the sun equally on all sides.
  • Clean these natural fibres every few weeks: wipe down with a damp (not soaking-wet) cloth to gently remove dust, then air-dry.
  • You can also remove dust with a vacuum cleaner – use the brush nozzle, and be gentle. Or simply brush off debris and dirt with a dry paintbrush.
  • Tackle mould or mildew as soon as it appears, using a diluted bleach solution applied with a damp cloth.
  • Removable cushion covers should be cleaned annually.
