Wicker Outdoor Furniture – How Does It Work

It seems to defy common sense, but wicker outdoor furniture is designed to last the test of the time outside. In fact, because they are so tropical-looking, rattan and wicker furniture are actually some of the most popular types of furniture to use on patios all over the world!

So, how do they do it?

Rattan and wicker furniture go hand-in-hand. Simply put, wicker outdoor furniture is actually the result of thin strips of rattan and a synthetic material – like resin or vinyl – being weaved together. Once it is made, outdoor wicker furniture looks just like the genuine wicker furniture that you would put inside your house, but this so-called “resin wicker” can also hold its own against scorching sun and heavy rains.

By adding that synthetic material into the mix, resin wicker will not fade, warp, or fall victim to mold and mildew like other types of outdoor furniture can. Those plastic chairs and tables can’t promise you that!
And, since it doesn’t have any metal in it, you will never have to worry about your wicker outdoor furniture getting covered in rust. Unfortunately, that iron table and chairs you have will fall victim to rust sooner than you think.

But no matter what kind of climate you live in, you can count on your resin wicker to always look as good as the day you bought it!

As an added benefit, this resin wicker is just as sturdy and lightweight as traditional rattan and wicker furniture. You can rest easy knowing that it will support even your heaviest of guests – yet it will also be light enough to move around, like when you want to sit closer to the pool, or when you want to change angles as the sun moves across the sky!

Plus, you can count on your wicker outdoor furniture to be comfortable. Whether you buy a chair, an outdoor couch, or an ottoman, all of it is designed to be used with comfortable cushions. If the cushions ever fall victim to the elements, it’s easy to find replacement cushions.

In fact, if you really want to make your outdoor wicker furniture unique, you can even have a variety of wicker replacement cushions on hand so that you can change color schemes anytime you want! You could have bright cushions to use in the summer, earth-toned cushions to use in the fall, and red and green cushions to use during the holidays.
