Wicker, rattan and bamboo furniture come a long way from the East, as far as Egypt and China. Furniture made of these organic materials are noted for their comfort, lightness, and intricate woven designs. Recently, Hollywood star Brad Pitt has even bought a woven rattan bed shaped like a boat, designed by Filipino designer Kenneth Cobonpue.
It is beyond all controversies that nothing can beat the aesthetic charm of the royal and vintage metal patio furniture. Although it is quite tough to maintain the metal furniture in the gardens and patios, yet there are many ways to do this. Applying high quality paints and spray will prevent the metals from getting rust. Before painting or spraying it is mandatory to remove the rusts with the help of grade-A rust remover and sand them thoroughly and wipe the dust off.
Rattan is a more affordable building material compared to iron and teak. By nature, it is a very tough material. Only with intense heating can it be used as a material for creating furniture. It is flexible enough to take on any shape. Usually, rattan is used with iron, wood or plastic. These materials serve as the solid frame for the cane. The cane is bent over and around these frames, and when cooled, takes on the shape and form of the frame. As rattan is abundantly available, the cost of producing such furniture is low. Hence, it's easier for furniture retailers to make a good profit from such furniture.
