|Synthetic rattan furniture
Another issue is that - as happen to any natural material - rattan should receive a proper treatment to improving its resistance against attacks of termites. Again, the weather condition where a rattan furniture is located may affect its durability."Specifically if you need rattan and wicker furniture for use in an outdoor setting, the solution is wicker outdoor furniture made of polyethylene-based fiber, the synthetic wicker furniture,"
an executive from Abacus Wickers Indonesia
explained. "Use of this polyethylene-based fiber to furniture combines the elegance of classic wicker crafts and the endurance of synthetic fiber, resulting to long-lasting all weather rattan furniture,"
he confirmed further.
Wicker, although classic, works well for the furniture buyers who always seek for discount wicker furniture
to expand their import-export business. Wicker furniture reflects the feel of casual elegance in classy private residences and in commercial buildings as well. Furniture made of synthetic rattan
not only offers comfort, versatility and livability, but it also offers superb endurance a rattan wicker furniture
always requires. It mixes well with any flower plant pot
and large garden pottery
items you may have at home.

items such as large decorative vase
, plant pots
, and other decorative terra cotta pottery
items, no need to worry; this kind of plastic rattan furniture

|Disadvantages of natural rattan
Most rattan grows to hundreds of feet in length; it is one of nature's strongest materials. It will not splinter nor break so it is ideal for making furniture. And when a curve-shaped furniture component is needed rattan is easily does it; once molded by steaming process, solid rattan retains its contours permanently. The outer skin of the rattan pole named as peel and traditionally is used to wrap joints. And, due to such flexible characteristics, various kind of decorative lamp
and other kind of home decoration
items can be made from natural rattan.
Note: For those who prefer a Japanese-style living environment, a Japanese paper shade lamp made of tropical wood or other types of wooden lamp are still the best alternatives.
Nothing is perfect in life. As a natural fiber, rattan also has some weaknesses in its inherent character. Natural rattan furniture can not be exposed to harsh ultraviolet sunlight for prolonged periods of time, as this can affect the color. Water hyacinth, for example, as it is a natural untreated handmade product, it will absorb moisture and dry out in direct relation to climate conditions. To avoid any deterioration natural rattan furniture is only suitable for use in a dry and well ventilated environment. Briefly speaking, although protective surface finishing may help but basically a natural rattan furniture
will not survive well in an outdoor setting.
|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
|Synthetic rattan furniture for outdoor and patio environment
Despite its advantages over modern teak wood furniture
, any designs and models of indoor rattan furniture
made of natural rattan always has its own disadvantages; it is sensitive to surrounding climate conditions. Outdoor wicker furniture
sets of an outdoor restaurant which are exposed to strong sunshine will not last in a long period of time. The same problem may happen to patio rattan furniture
installed on your backyard, especially when you live in countries with heavy rain.
In such environmental setting a synthetic wicker furniture
made of polyethylene-based fiber is a solution. So ... when you need a really durable patio wicker furniture
for your home or around your gazebo pavilion
, look no further and find this kind of wicker furniture.
