Garden design and decoration is a very interesting and complex process. Much like the interior of the home, taking time to carefully plan and arrange one’s garden furniture is essential. By considering each piece from parasols to garden tables, the overall look of a garden is enhanced, but so too is the function. One popular choice that buyers make is to add rattan garden armchairs to their outdoor design. These versatile pieces provide several benefits to users and can really add class to a garden.

With so many different choices of outdoor garden furniture on the market it can be confusing which the right choice is for you. Your lifestyle should play an important role in your decision as some furniture, made from a natural material, will need a lot of maintenance; good quality synthetic rattan is virtually maintenance free, requiring a quick wipe down with a damp cloth to look as good as new year after year.
Find out what the difference is between wicker and natural resin wicker. Synthetic usually means fake, right? Well, not in this case. Organic wicker is considered the original and authentic form. While this is true, it is just not practical for outdoor use.
99% of the time, outdoor wicker patio sets are made from synthetic resins. Resin wicker is made to look like natural wicker without aging like it as well. The word Wicker is derived from the Scandinavian word “wika” which means “to bend.”
Rattan furniture is continuously growing in popularity and a lot of furniture manufacturers wanted achieve the distinctive look and feel of natural rattan but for a fraction of the cost.
Manufacturers have developed a synthetic rattan furniture that still maintains the general look and feel of natural rattan together with the long lasting durability of the real thing.
They usually start by making the synthetic rattan furniture with a sturdy aluminum frame then instead of wrapping the frame with the natural rattan cane they make use of plastics and resin to create the form.
The plastic material is also extremely malleable and easy to shape, plus its available in a wide array of shades and colours. And I have to be honest with you, the good thing with the synthetic varieties is that they still maintain that strength of the natural rattan too.
The plastic or synthetic rattan look furniture is strong and, if properly looked after, will last you an incredibly long time. Also, it is very easy to clean with just warm water and washing up liquid when needed and it is not susceptible to any rust like iron garden furniture or mold like the natural rattan.
The synthetic furniture is usually a little lower in price than natural furniture. It is not uncommon for people to generalize that garden furniture at a lower price does not equal quality and therefore it will not last past a few summer’s. But that is nonsense and they will actually last significantly longer than the natural counterpart, without all the fretting about leaving them out in the rain.
In the UK, wicker rattan garden furniture sold for outdoor, garden or patio use tends to be constructed from the synthetic materials in order to deliver longer durability and life span. To get the best deals you generally need to buy rattan effect garden furniture sets out of the summer season, preferably in winter time.
The Zebrano rattan furniture has been so popular this season that we’ve actually sold out for 2015, so we are now offering the chance to pre-order for delivery in February/March 2016 at a really great price.
