Rattan (originated from a Malay word - Rotan) is technically a tree, although it grows like a vine along the ground. They are usually found in the tropical regions of Africa, Asia and Australia. The rattan vines are cut and peeled, then steamed to make them pliable, and then they are used as rattan weaving materials. Rattan furniture can be made of stripes of Rattan that are woven together when the wood is wet. It can also be strips of Bamboo or other materials woven around straight rattan slats. Rattan easily accepts paints and stains like many other kinds of wood, so it is available in many colors and it can be worked into many styles.
In choosing the right modern patio furniture, you have to know your budget. How much money will you spend on it? There are affordable, yet stylish pieces for sale.

To transform your simple patio into someplace chic and fabulous, just add a few garden accents that fit your budget.
Patio furniture comes in all sizes and shapes. There are sofas, settees, sun decks, hammocks, coffee tables and armchairs. Some are hard, some are soft. The hard ones could be made of concrete, marble, wrought iron, or aluminum. The others, especially those from the tropics, are made of wood, wicker or rattan. These are often covered with thick cushions in brightly colored printed fabric. If your patio leads to a pool, then you may need a cabana for changing clothes, tables and chairs for poolside refreshments, and sun decks.
