With the recent resurgence of bohemian style, it's no wonder that rattan is also making a comeback. But you might be surprised to discover that rattan can look surprisingly chic. Context is everything, and mixing a rattan piece or two in with more modern elements can make all the difference between a room that looks like the revenge of the '70s, and one that looks like you just added in a bit of natural rattan flair. If you're ready to give it a chance, check out our modern rattan finds (no papasan chairs included).
Whether you call them Easter baskets or spring baskets, these delightful DIY creations will add a fresh and festive feel to any space.

If you ask me, a basket without a basket liner looks kinda naked. But sewing them can be a bit tricky, especially when you factor in those four tricky corners on the bottom. I decided there had to be an easier, fool proof way to make them. So, after some experimentation, I came up with a method that involves a little math but no pattern and–better yet–no corner sewing!
