30 Best Cane Furniture Pieces
Last Updated on September 24, 2023
If you’re looking to add texture to your home decor, you’ve come to the right spot. Today I’m rounding up the best cane furniture — it’s what is trending now in home decor, and I’m here for it. Caning has been around for years but was overlooked for rattan furniture during the boho boom. It wasn’t until I bought the dining room chairs at an estate sale and shared them on TikTok that I realized there was confusion over what is the difference between cane, rattan, and wicker furniture. Let’s define what caning is and then round up over 30 best cane furniture pieces that have caught my eye.

Isn’t Cane Furniture Rattan Furniture?
Yes and no. Cane is rattan, but it comes from the outer skin of the rattan stalk (BTDubs rattan is from the palm family). Once the stalks are harvested, the bark is separated, and the long strands are woven together. That material is called cane. The woven process is called caning, and the end product is cane furniture. You still with me? In a nutshell, cane furniture is anything made from rattan.
Ya, I know, it’s tricky. How’s this — cane furniture is not necessarily the hexagon patterned webbing material on the back of a chair. It just needs to be rattan bark woven together in some way, shape, or form.
Wicker furniture includes reed, bamboo, willow, and rattan. Think of wicker as the weaving process, much like caning, but if someone says it is cane and you want true cane, be sure to ask what it is made of. If it’s not made from rattan, it’s not cane furniture. It’s wicker furniture.
This wicker shade sconce (no longer available) below is made of rattan, and if the material is made from the bark of the rattan stalk, it’s cane. However, because the material is a bit thicker, my guess is it’s not made of bark, so it truly is wicker – made from rattan. Either way, I’m keeping it in this round-up because it’s beautiful, and I LURVE it so much!
