With these considerations, one furniture material that is very ideal for outdoor applications is rattan. Rattan is one of the most durable and long lasting natural materials used in furniture making. Although, rattan is a little expensive, it lasts long and is very easy to maintain and clean. Rattan also has a natural appearance that goes perfectly with the natural environment that patios offer. Moreover, rattan patio furniture offers an aura of relaxation and elegance that no other outdoor furniture can offer. To top it all, when rattan wears off its luster because of environmental exposure, it can be conveniently revived by applying lacquer or varnish.
On the other hand, another alternative for natural rattan furniture is the synthetic rattan furniture. Since this furniture is made of plastic, it is more resistant to outdoor environmental conditions. Synthetic rattan furniture is also more popularly known as artificial rattan furniture. While these furniture pieces offer the same natural elegance that rattan furniture offers, these also offer greater durability, more color options, and even lower cost. In addition, with synthetic rattan furniture, you don't actually have to regularly retouch it to maintain its shine and luster, as most plastics are processed to have long lasting luster and shine. Moreover, contrary to most plastic products, the fibers used in artificial rattan furniture are non toxic, recyclable, and environmentally friendly.
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.
