A rattan sofa can become the centerpiece of your living room. It is not necessary to have a completely matched set of furniture in your living room to make it look good. Having one piece that is different, yet fits the color scheme, allows you to have a room that is more your style and tastes that those of whoever put together the sets in the furniture store. Find the sofa the fits in with your colors. Decide on the material you want and go from there.
You may be surprised at how much you like the new sofa and decide to use more wicker furniture in the room, or in other rooms. Many people are finding that wicker goes well in almost any situation or atmosphere. It is no longer relegated to the screened in patio. Because it can be painted, wicker is showing up in every room of the house. It may be a small piece you do not notice until you look right at it, or it could be the big piece that everyone sees first thing.
There are many different colors and designs when it comes to rattan wicker furniture. You can use it in a formal room, or in a room that is casual. Find the right color and design of the wood pieces and then get the cushions in a pattern that fits in with the rest of the room. You may even just have rattan accents on different pieces to bring the room all together.
