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.
You might want to measure off the area you have for furniture and how many pieces of furniture you would like to purchase before you go shopping. This will make the plan and layout much easier. When you do shop for outdoor furniture, stay away from exceptionally low priced furniture. Although these seem like a good buy at first, they're not very durable, and they won't be worth the money you spend on them. Instead, look for furniture that's 100% "kiln dried teak," with no other types of wood included in the furniture's construction.
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.
