Rattan Garden Furniture A Complete Guide

Natural rattan furniture is unsuitable for year round outdoor use, particularly in areas with changeable weather such as the UK.

In the past, natural rattan or wicker furniture was made from materials harvested from Rattan Palms – plants native to Africa, Asia and Australasia and commonly grown in Indonesia.

Fortunately, modern high quality synthetic rattan is weather resistant, incredibly durable and can be left outside in all seasons.
Unlike most wood, metal or plastic furniture, synthetic rattan is maintenance free and will stay looking as good as new for many years.

Lightweight & Practical

Unlike wood or metal furniture where weight is often a sign of quality, rattan furniture uses modern materials and construction methods meaning it does not need to be heavy. Because of its light weight, synthetic rattan furniture is easy to move which gives you the flexibility to change the layout of your outdoor space as needed and means rattan furniture is practical to store when not in use.

Strong and Durable

Modern synthetic rattan furniture uses a high quality polyethylene fibre construction for high flexibility and tensile strength. Aluminium frames are corrosion resistant and offer a high strength to weight ratio. Premium synthetic materials mean that rattan furniture is resistant to pests and fungus.
