4 Reasons to Have Wicker and Rattan Furniture in Your Home

Whether you’re starting to decorate your home from scratch or you’re looking for a way to spruce things up, you’re really missing out if you don’t include some wicker and rattan furniture.
Here’s why:

1. It’s always in style

Hate having to buy new furniture every few years because yours looks out-of-date? When you have wicker and rattan furniture, you never have that problem! Rattan and wicker furniture both have a classic look to them that’s been in style for decades — and will continue to be in style for decades more.

That modern dining set you buy today might be hopelessly out of style in a few years. However, that rattan dining set will look just as trendy 10 years from now as it does today!

2. Changing your décor just means changing a few cushions

If you suddenly decide that you want to replace your chocolate brown couch with something lighter, you either have to pay to get a new couch or pay to get it re-upholstered, right?

Not when you have a rattan or wicker couch!

Rattan and wicker furniture isn’t upholstered. Instead, it just has loose cushions on it. So, if you ever decide to change things up, all you have to do is buy new cushions and lay them on the couch. That makes it even easier to keep up with the latest trends. Once your cushions’ pattern goes out of style, just replace them with new ones — and you’ve got a trendy piece of furniture!

3. It lasts a long time

This stuff doesn’t just keep up with the latest trends; it’s also incredibly durable. You can count on that rattan dining set or that wicker dresser you buy today to last you years and years.

That’s because wicker and rattan furniture is made out of vines found at the bottom of the rainforests. In the case of wicker, it’s woven together, while rattan is left in thicker strips. Either way, the end result is a sturdy piece of furniture that’s going to last as long as you need it.

4. It can go outside, too

Most of the stuff you see in “traditional” furniture stores can’t handle Mother Nature. That’s not the case with wicker furniture! Your rattan should stay inside, but wicker furniture can be specially-mixed with resin during the manufacturing process — making it strong enough to withstand sunlight, rain, snow, and anything else that Mother Nature throws at it!

When you take advantage of outdoor wicker, you can wind up with a patio area that’s totally unique. For example, you can get an outdoor wicker sectional, instead of the average plastic chairs. And, as an added benefit, an outdoor wicker sectional is way more comfortable than those plastic seats!
