Rattan - Quality Furniture at an Affordable Price

Whether you’re looking for indoor or outdoor furniture, rattan offers a range of styles and finishes that is suitable for your needs. Blending the traditional woven look with modern materials for a durable, high-quality finish means that you can get all the benefits of quality furniture for your home, conservatory or garden at a very affordable price.

With a host of seating and dining sets to choose from, you’re bound to be able to find something that suits your home or garden and brings some added style to your living space. Using durable fabrics and synthetic fibres, the woven furniture will stand up to the trials and tribulations of modern living and ensure that you’ve got some great furniture that will last for years.

The process
Creating modern high-quality rattan furniture starts with the production methods. Traditional styles of weaving are employed using the highest quality materials to create something that merges modern manufacturing standards with old-fashioned quality and durability.

While traditional rattan furniture was usually made using bamboo for the frames of the seats and tables, more modern variants of the traditional style are made of much sterner stuff. Rather than using flexible wooden frames, items of modern rattan furniture are made using strong but light aluminium frames that allow them to take a considerable amount of wear and tear through outdoor and indoor use. While they are structurally strong, they are also able to withstand all weathers with aluminium’s natural resistance to damage from water and cold. Unlike a frame made from wood, which can rot and disintegrate, modern rattan furniture is built to last through the seasons and take a battering from the elements.

The exterior of the modern rattan chair or table is also built to withstand the weather. In place of the traditional wicker or straw used to weave the outside of the furniture, synthetic PVC fibres are carefully selected to create the body of the items making them both incredibly strong and completely weatherproof. A modern item of rattan furniture will look good for many years with very little maintenance; something that makes it highly sought-after.

Pick your colour
As with older style, traditionally made rattan furniture, the more modern kinds of tables and chairs also come in a wide range of colours to blend with your interior décor or fit in with your outdoor surroundings. From the lightest sand colours through to deep, rich dark browns, there’s a colour for every taste.
The colour of the cushions on your rattan furniture can also be customised to meet your own personal style. Made from hard-wearing fabrics that will last many years with proper care, you can choose from contemporary styles to fit in with your design for your home or outdoor space.

Quality and value

The development of modern manufacturing processes using high quality, durable materials have made rattan furniture highly desirable for both indoors and out. The older style furniture made with wicker and bamboo, as well as being expensive, does not have the durability to stand up to the year after year of wear and tear that we put our furniture through these days. Not only will a set of modern rattan furniture cost you less than you might think, your chosen set will last you for many years to come and look great year after year.


Modern rattan furniture is a desirable, durable choice for indoor and outdoor furniture in the contemporary home. With sturdy materials, a choice of styles and colours and the benefit of built-in weatherproofing, your chosen furniture will last you for many years of stylish service.
