The patio furniture is usually hand crafted from the quality range of cedar wood - especially the western red cedar proves to be great when it all comes to the outdoors furniture set. This is because the cedar is specifically highly weather resistant. The western red cedar proves to be the perfect choice because this class of cedar wood has an awesome natural resistance to crack, rotting and wrapping. Every single part is pre drilled and the hardware such as screws and nuts and bolts etc. are zinc plated. This is one of the most essential features that any patio furniture must have in order to protect them from rust.
Iron patio furniture used to be very popular because of its durability. Many traditional furniture pieces are made from iron and they last for decades with little or no maintenance. Very little needs to be done to the furniture. Only minimal dusting and cleaning is required. However, iron furniture is giving way to other materials due to cost issues and a faster pace of life.
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.
