Rattan garden furniture has been a firm garden furniture favourite for a few years now. It’s luxurious, stylish and durable. So, you can see why many garden enthusiasts across the country welcome rattan furniture collections into their home. But just because rattan is a hugely popular garden furniture trend it doesn’t mean your garden can’t stand out from the crowd.
Rattan outdoor furniture is a staple feature of many stylish and luxurious garden designs. While the design oozes comfort and luxury, rattan garden collections are still practical and hard-wearing.
In general, rattan furniture requires little maintenance and can withstand all moderate weather conditions. Rattan is shower-proof, can be pressure washed, includes UV protection and is made from PU rattan material. Any accompanying soft furnishings, such as cushions, are machine washable. So, you can be confident that your quirky rattan garden furniture will look great for many summers to come.
