Best Rattan Dog Beds

You’ve put on your HGTV hat and designed your home to be a showplace. Now you’re dreading buying a pet bed because you’re afraid it’ll stick out like a sore thumb against your awe-inspiring décor. What do you do?

Arriving at this blog post is the first step, as there’s a solution. Rattan dog beds, also known as wicker dog beds (although there is a slight difference), are some of the most stylish, resembling mini pieces of furniture. The right one will blend with your décor, inside and out, and feature a sturdy base, removable cushion, and washable cover. 

There are additional benefits to rattan dog beds that the user will appreciate, too. So, read on, and you’ll be as savvy a shopper as an interior designer.

Pros and Cons of Rattan Dog Beds


  • Sturdy base 
  • Indoor-outdoor use
  • Stylish
  • Lasts for years
  • Removable, replaceable cushions


  • Designed primarily for small to medium breeds
  • Not all of them come with a quality mattress
  • Some assembly might be required

1. Trisha Yearwood Pet Collection – Wicker Bed Bundle

What We Like:

  • Basket-style bed from kobu rattan wicker
  • A waterproof blanket included
  • Ideal travel bed


  • Sizes:  30” x 23.5”
  • Machine Washable: Yes
  • Warranty: Through Chewy
  • Shipping: Through Chewy

There’s no assembly required for Trisha Yearwood’s Wicker pet bed, and, if you didn’t know better, you’d think it was part of your home décor. It looks like an oval rattan basket that holds magazines or linens. But when you get closer, you’ll see a padded foam mattress that’ll keep your fur baby cushioned in comfort.

You can easily wipe the wood exterior clean, and the removable mattress cover is machine washable. While you could buy the bed separately, we like the bundle, as the blanket is waterproof. So, you can carry this little basket bed outside for the afternoon or take it on trips, and the blanket does double-duty protecting the bed and keeping your pup warm.

Bottom Line – This rattan dog bed by Trisha Yearwood’s Pet Collection is one to pick if you’re looking for something super stylish that blends into your home décor. The downside is that it’s one size fits all and won’t work for large and giant breeds. 

2. Iconic Pet – Rattan Sofa with Removable Cover

What We Like:

  • Low profile design
  • Chew-resistant
  • UV-protected for outdoor use


  • Sizes:  31.5” x 19.7” x 9.8”
  • Machine Washable: Yes
  • Warranty: Through Chewy
  • Shipping: Through Chewy

Iconic Pet has taken great care to produce a sofa-style rattan dog bed that’ll work just as well on your patio as in your home. The dark mocha and caramel woven palm stems aren’t just for show. They create a sturdy base and are treated with UV inhibitors to prevent fading and flaking. 

Although the 3” thick polyester pillow isn’t considered orthopedic, Iconic Pet’s Rattan Sofa design benefits small to medium pups with joint or muscle pain. It’s got enough lift at the base so your fur baby can flop into bed instead of struggling to get on and off the ground.

Bottom Line – The Rattan Sofa with Removable Cover is one of two we’re highlighting from the Iconic Pet brand. It’s one of the top producers of rattan dog beds, focusing on quality indoor-outdoor products. However, Iconic Pet tends to focus on smaller breeds. While the overall length is 31.5”, the cushion is only 27” long. 

3. Iconic Pet – Rattan Rectangular Sofa Dog Bed

What We Like:

  • Three sizes
  • Tall arms and back enclose the sleeping space
  • Dark espresso color


  • Sizes: 25” x 20”  *  35” x 23.5”  *  38.5” x 26.5”
  • Machine Washable: Yes
  • Warranty: Through Chewy
  • Shipping: Through Chewy

We had to go for two with Iconic Pet as it dominates the market with its rattan-base pet furniture. This particular sofa-style dog bed has quite a few design changes that set it apart from the basic rattan sofa. 

The back has a higher profile, and the arms are comparatively narrower. This one also comes in three sizes, although the largest is still short of accommodating large breeds. As far as standard features, Iconic Pet sticks to its winning formula, treating the chew-resistant wood with UV inhibitors and providing a machine washable, removable cushion.

Bottom Line – This rectangular sofa model is better for outdoor use. If your pup spends a lot of time on your patio or deck, they’ll appreciate a cozy place to sleep. But it doesn’t have many orthopedic benefits for larger pups. So, unless you have a smaller fur baby who enjoys the coziness provided by the high back and side arms, it leans more toward style than substance for indoor use.

4. Serena & Lily – Riviera Dog Bed

What We Like:

  • Large sleeping area
  • Gingham cover combined with white and blue rattan bas
  • Sustainafill™ eco-friendly cushion


  • Size: 27” x 10”  *  37” x 28.5”
  • Machine Washable: Yes
  • Warranty: 30-day satisfaction guarantee
  • Shipping: Calculated at checkout

We’ve chosen a luxury brand for our final pick, as rattan dog beds focus on style, and this one is a standout. 

Serena & Lily’s Riviera rattan dog bed is a low-profile model with little space taken up by the arms and back. There’s just enough for sturdiness and support, but the 37” large provides 36” of cushioning. 

Unlike other options, you get some color with Serena & Lily, as the Riviera has a blue and white woven base with a coordinating navy gingham mattress cover. The non-allergenic cushion is made from eco-friendly fiber, and the frame uses sustainable rattan.

Bottom Line – The Riviera is a relatively expensive pet bed. But, if you’re in the market for something different that’s both eye-catching and functional, this is the one. You’ll also appreciate that there are coordinating pieces in Serena & Lily’s expansive Riviera Collection.

What are rattan dog beds?

The terms rattan dog bed and wicker dog bed tend to be used interchangeably. But rattan is a wood-like vine from some palms, so it’s flexible. Wicker is the style of weaving. So, a rattan pet bed has a woven rattan base supporting different types and styles of cushions. Many rattan dog beds resemble outdoor patio furniture.

Are rattan pet beds comfortable for dogs?

The comfort of rattan pet beds depends on the brand. Some are designed more for show, with high backs and cushions that look good but aren’t necessarily supportive. However, there are quality models that pups love, with orthopedic mattresses and lower arms that provide neck and joint support.

What’s the appeal of rattan dog beds?

Rattan provides some of the sturdiest pet beds in the industry. Instead of a simple cushion base, the entire thing is supported with a wood structure. That platform also translates to height, which is beneficial for aging dogs or fur babies with arthritis. A third selling point is stylishness. These beds resemble mini pieces of furniture and can be used inside or outside on patios or decks.

Do rattan dog beds have orthopedic benefits?

Because rattan dog beds typically have a sturdy base, the height is beneficial for pups with joint and muscle pain. Low-profile models are also handy as the back and arms can support sore necks and legs. However, not all wicker-style dog beds have proper orthopedic mattresses.

Are rattan pet beds suitable for all dogs?

No. Unfortunately, most of today’s rattan dog beds are designed for small to medium breeds. So, unless you have a large fur baby who curls up into a small space to sleep, we suggest shopping for something different.

Is rattan the same as a wicker dog bed?

The terms rattan and wicker are used interchangeably. But rattan is the type of material that is a flexible palm. Wicker is the type of weave. So, a rattan dog bed is also wicker, while a wicker dog bed might not be made of rattan.

Tips for Buying the Best Rattan Dog Beds

Don’t shop solely for style – Most pet parents buy rattan dog beds because they’re solid and stylish. However, that’s not enough for your pup. So, we recommend looking for a large enough model to be comfortable and which includes an orthopedic or orthopedic-style mattress for support.

Size matters – Shopping for a rattan or wicker-style pet bed is similar to donut beds or bolster-style models. The listed dimensions are for the entire thing and not the sleeping area. Consider these types of options have backs and arms that take up space, so sizing up might be handy.

The higher, the better for large dogs with joint pain – One of the best features of rattan dog beds is the ample base. It typically provides anywhere from 3” to 12” of lift, ideal for pups who find it challenging to lower themselves to the ground.

Read all about it – Rattan dog beds are different than standard mattress-style models. So, we suggest you thoroughly read all of the accompanying information. Look for features including the cushion material, inside dimensions, removable covers, UV protection, chew-proof or chew-resistance, etc.
