How weatherproof is rattan furniture?

There’s something about rattan furniture that just says ‘summer’. It makes you want to sit back and lounge with a good magazine, refreshing cocktail in hand and relax in the sun.

Fashionable everywhere in the 1970s, Rattan is having a comeback and currently trending. Comfortable and lightweight, it’s a great indoor and outdoor furniture choice. Aside from requiring minimal maintenance and being able to withstand long periods outdoors (popularised since the 1840’s in America as porch furniture). It adds a warmth and richness to conservatories and outside rooms, with many retro and modern styles available.

One important consideration when investing in garden lounge sets, is how weatherproof is rattan furniture? Good rattan can last a long time, and it makes sense to use garden furniture covers. See our complete range to suit your size.

Our latest luxurious lines include both natural rattan and polyrattan options. So step out in your garden and relax this summer with our resort inspired garden furniture. Such as the Amalfi Outdoor Furniture Collection available in a 5-seater rattan lounge set, 6-seater dining set and a 4-seater conversation set. Or the luxury sun loungers, such as this fabulous grey rattan Valencia Sun Lounger. Its steel frame, spun polyester cushions and eucalyptus legs, are all weatherproof friendly.

The rattan Stockholm Corner Lounge Set has all the accessories you need for the perfect outdoor lounging and dining experience, and comes with a polyrattan sofa and matching dining table in a classy soft grey/cream tone. It’s so inviting with its sink in, removable anti-fade foam cushions. Likewise, the Chesterton Corner Rattan Set has all the rustic charm of natural rattan, but is also made using durable synthetic polyrattan, giving the added bonus of being 100% maintenance free.

As far as rattan garden sofas go, this 7 seater Skarnes Rattan Corner Lounge Set is the perfect corner sofa for any garden. Great for al fresco snacks with a handy ottoman coffee table, complete with a cushioned covering and tempered glass table top allowing you to choose between seat or coffee table options as the occasion requires.

In fact, our special rattan summer collections have a great range of shapes and styles, offering flexibility to suit your outdoor furniture needs. We love the curves of this cool sculptural Pod Rattan Balcony Set design, a modern take on traditional rattan furniture. Made with a professionally galvanised steel frame with a polypropylene based artificial rattan. It’s so easy to look after, a quick once over with a damp cloth at the start of the season and you’re all set.

Overall rattan is a great option for outdoors. Ideal for relaxing in the all important garden space. The key to keeping your rattan furniture looking like new is not only to cover it with furniture covers, but to also remove the cushions when not in use.

So many options this season for rattan!

Rattan is a durable material which tends to have a natural ‘give’ to it, so it’s extra comfy to lounge on. It looks at home in a mix and match setting, with its natural colour and texture. See our Ripley Armchair with Ottoman or the expertly woven natural Hampton Rattan Armchairs.

Outside seating areas are an important space for physical and mental wellbeing, and of course it’s lovely to use a natural (or natural looking: ssh) material that blends in with your garden.

Rattan is a classic addition to the creation of a garden sanctuary and outdoor lounging space.
