Rattan furniture is made from rattan vines which are woven together to create outdoor furniture, which is commonly used in the summer months. Many people have difficulties deciding between the two options. With an aim to make your decision easier, we will take a closer look at natural and synthetic rattan garden furniture and compare both their advantages and disadvantages.
Natural Outdoor Rattan Set is exceptionally strong and durable, of course, if it is protected from the outdoor elements and if it is made according to the highest quality workmanship standards. Quality synthetic rattan is extremely durable as well but there is one major difference. In contrary to natural rattan furniture, our all-weather rattan collection can be left outdoors all year round without the need to worry about the harsh outdoor conditions affecting its beauty or durability.
There is no difference between natural and synthetic rattan when it comes to comfort. Instead, the level of comfort your rattan garden furniture will provide you with depends on the design and quality of weaving as well as some other factors such as the size of the furniture because even the cosiest piece of furniture will feel uncomfortable if it is too large for instance. Also, the key pieces of furniture such as rattan garden chairs are typically used with chair cushions which increase both the comfort and the overall aesthetic appeal of the furniture.
Care and maintenance
Speaking of maintenance, you should give consideration to the amount of work that may be required to keep your rattan garden furniture in good shape. Whether you buy premium or budget pieces, you still need to carry out some level of maintenance as it plays an important role in maximising the value of your purchase. This is especially true during the COVID-19 period if family or friends come to visit your home, as you are likely to spend more time outside to maintain social distancing, which means the furniture pieces need to be cleaned more frequently.
A Smart year-round choice is to use waterproof cushions for outdoor furniture to protect against rainfall, especially for rattan patio furniture that is more exposed to the outside elements. Some fabrics such as PVC mesh, polyester or solution dyed acrylic/olefin always stand up well to testing weather conditions
Although synthetic materials have a bad reputation among environmentally conscious home owners, products which are made from all natural materials can cause serious damage to the environment as well. And natural rattan furniture is no exception. Due to the rising demand for rattan products, many rattan species are threatened with extinction, while unsustainable harvesting poses a risk of forest degradation and loss of biodiversity. At the same time, processing of rattan often involves the use of toxic chemicals which pollute the environment and jeopardise the health of the workers as well as the nearby communities. Many pieces of synthetic rattan furniture are not any more environmentally friendly, however, just because they are made from man-made fibres that does not necessarily mean they are harming the environment. On the contrary, all pieces of rattan garden furniture from our collection are made from environmentally friendly, non-toxic and 100% recyclable fibres.
