The History of Rattan:

Rattan is the name for roughly 600 species of climbing palms belonging to subfamily Calamoideae. The greatest diversity of rattan palm species and genera are in the tropical forests of Southeast Asia, though they can also be found in other parts of tropical Asia and Africa. Most rattan palms are ecologically considered lianas due to their climbing habits, unlike other palm species. Though a few species also have tree-like or shrub-like habits.

Rattan can be manipulated into the most incredible, seemingly organic forms, making it a popular medium for furniture weaving as you can see on the image.

Rattan is having a moment, and frankly, has been for the last few years. We see why. Seating and decor items fabricated from this natural material give homes an effortlessly cool vibe–and who wouldn’t want that?

One of the disadvantages of rattan furniture is that it is often not very comfortable. We have found a solution for that and it can be found below.

 

Maintenance requirements:

Although the outdoor rattan items are meant to withstand wind and sunlight; it doesn’t mean that they can naturally last longer. Some efforts are always required for their maintenance in the long run. It is important to clean the rainwater from your expensive furniture. Make sure you clean it well when kids throw some liquid on synthetic rattan furniture. Our experts form the factory also advise adding a shade above your outdoor rattan furniture to avoid fading and cracking.

Indoor vs outdoor:

The selection may vary depending upon whether you are going to buy rattan furniture for an indoor area or outdoor needs. It is important to mention that indoor and outdoor wicker furniture cannot be the same every time. The outdoor pieces are usually finished with poly rattan or synthetic wicker so that they can sustain variable weather conditions. The outdoor furniture material is expected to withstand hot sunlight, harsh rains and windy air. On the other side, indoor furniture can be more stylish and easy-going.
