Vintage rattan (and wicker) pieces are very popular around the world. And finding the perfect piece to compliment your interior can be quite a search. It’s hard to imagine that in the 1950’s, basically every Dutch household included at least one of these pieces. A chair, a glass coffee tables with rattan magazine shelf or even sofas and foot stools. The exotic material is easy to use, lightweight and very versatile. No wonder the Dutch (among many other countries) fell in love with it!
The material comes from the rattan palm that can be found in the subtropics as long vines. Still, these chairs weren’t made in the former Dutch East Indies or New Guinea. In fact, they were mostly made in Noordwolde, a village in the north of the Netherlands. When thinking of mid-century rattan or wicker, you will most likely be thinking of manufacturers Rohé and Gebroeders Jonkers. Both are located in Noordwolde. Gebroeders Jonkers were the first to combine it with steel, giving way for a whole new range of products that will be the mid-century classics we love today.
