The next time you're looking for a new item to add to your home, scope out your rattan options. Furniture pieces made from this tropical vine are considered classic for all the right reasons: they're versatile, they come in lots of interesting patterns, and they fit in with just about any design aesthetic. And because rattan is undergoing a serious resurgence in popularity lately, you can find this textured finish in almost any shape, size, and color. But instead of setting you out on a shopping excursion, we've rounded up 14 different pieces that showcase how striking this look can be. From major design pieces like chairs and shelving to eye-catching details like a tray and mirror, here are several smart finds that'll work this timeless trend into your personal oasis.

Honey Rattan Tray

The easiest way to get into any trend or aesthetic is to start small, and a tray is a great option. Put this one from World Market ( $19.99 ) on your coffee table and fill it with a framed photo, your favorite candle, and a vase of fresh flowers.

Ida Mirror

If you're into the bohemian vibe, a rattan mirror is the way to go. We love this mirror from the Jungalow ( $104 ) for its funky character and confident style. Put it in your entryway for a bold detail right when you walk through the door.

Rattan Magazine Rack

While lots of rattan pieces are intricately woven, you can also find simple versions that fit in with lots of other aesthetics. This vintage magazine rack from Loveseat ( $36 ) is super simple, but super cute — it would look perfect next to a cozy armchair decked out with your reading pile, or in your home office stacked with all of your magazines.

Black Dining Chair

The best pieces are those that look great indoors and outdoors. This CB2 black dining chair ( $79.95 ) would look just as good on your patio as it would in your dining room. Drape a blanket over the back or put a sheepskin in the seat for a warm finish.

Charlottenborg Side Table

If you're looking to use rattan in your living room, do it with this H.D. Buttercup side table ( $499 ). The next time you go to the flea market, look for vintage frames or a chic table lamp and put them on this glass-topped beauty.

Serena & Lily Chevron Riviera Side Chair

This Serena & Lily chair ( $228 ) has just the right amount of color and pattern, which is showcased in a classic aesthetic. Park this beauty in a breakfast nook or on a covered patio.

Rattan Floor Storage

Rattan always looks good in a monochromatic bathroom. Use a freestanding storage unit like this one from Pottery Barn ( $79 ) for extra towels and your prettiest toiletries.

Rattan Bookshelf

If you're ready to invest in furniture, there are tons of interesting vintage rattan finds on the internet, like this 1960s-era Rattanchic bookshelf ( $384.34 ). It's a perfect kitchen piece: use it for your budding plant collection, cookbooks, and tchotchkes.

Vintage Bamboo and Rattan Bar Cart

If you're one of the last bar cart holdouts, it's totally cool — you were waiting for this perfect rattan option to come your way. This bamboo and rattan piece ( $188 ) was made in Italy in the 1960s, and there are even spots to store upright bottles of your favorite wines.

Jens Woven Windsor Sofa

The next time you're in the market for a new couch, buy a rattan sofa: it seriously looks good year-round. This sofa from Urban Outfitters ( $898 ) looks so cozy with tons of textiles, a pretty print, and a hanging plant.

Coco Hanging Chair

First, buy this Amber Interiors hanging chair ( $550 ) to give your patio or living room the ultimate indoor-outdoor piece. Then, read up on how to install a hanging chair, and then pull in a textured rug or pillow.

Riley Rattan Headboard

Rattan details can be intricate enough to let you skip hanging artwork above your bed, which is the case for this Joss & Main headboard ( $362.99 ). It comes in multiple sizes, and would make matching twin beds look especially darling.

Curved Rattan Bed

If you ever dreamed of having a canopy bed as a kid, this Anthropologie rattan bed ( starting at $1,798 ) is the adult version. Its light wood finish and crisscross pattern heightens the airy feeling of white sheets, which will make your nightly routine feel like a dream.
