The natural rattan furniture
Natural rattan has been used in furniture making for quite long time. Since the beginning of this decade, however, its role in the furniture industry is decreasing due to the introduction of a polyethylene-based fiber. Today we find synthetic rattan furniture everywhere, reflecting the more acceptance of worldwide customers to the outcome of great works in modern PVC technology.
It is widely known that natural rattan has some advantages compared to wood. It is lighter in weight, strong, elastic, easier to make both regular and irregular shapes and of course less costly. Due to these comparative advantages rattan has been widely used as the material to produce minimalist-style indoor furniture such as teak console table, dining chair and tv cabinet & drawer. Additionally, rattan grows faster than any tropical wood species and people gain from easier harvesting works. Overall, making indoor furniture from rattan is economically more beneficial than making similar indoor wooden furniture.
