Wicker has long been popular as an outdoor furniture but it is slowly creeping its way into the interior of homes and hearts across the land. Wicker is a durable yet lightweight wood that will can endure the harsh elements of outdoor life or complement any room perfectly. With its a traditional yet modern natural look, there is no wonder why it is one of the most popular furniture choices available.
A lot of people don’t really understand wicker and it’s important to know a few things about it, especially if you’re considering adding it to your home. First off, wicker furniture is made of rattan poles that are approximately an inch to 1.5 inches in diameter. These poles are then woven together to create an exquisite piece of furniture.
Rattan is actually one of the strongest woods that you can find. It’s also one of the lightest woods available, which makes it so appealing. While its light weight may be deceiving, it is actually a durable material that can withstand many of life’s misadventures.
How it fits into your home
If you have a room that you are redecorating and aren’t sure exactly what you should be doing with it, take a look at wicker furniture and try to envision it inside your room. Many wicker pieces are made with a modern design with sloping curves and sleek lines. These fit well into a contemporary room décor with modern accessories and are made to keep up with today’s busy lifestyle.
There are also wicker indoor pieces that have more of a traditional look to them and they can look stunning in any room. The nice thing about these pieces is you can change the accessories around them to make the furniture look more modern or as traditional as you’d like.
Wicker on the patio
Whether you have a patio that’s missing furniture or want to add something special to your pool deck, wicker furniture is perfect for an outdoor setting. It has timeless beauty and can add a sort of tropical look to the landscaping. When you need a backyard oasis to retreat to, or want a casual seating arrangement for the front porch, wicker is the type of furniture that will fit the bill.
Wicker can withstand the elements better than a lot of wood pieces while adding exceptional value to the look of your yard. When you choose wicker furniture you’ll be choosing a patio piece that blends a soft outdoorsy feel of nature with a durable wood that can withstand the elements.
Getting your money’s worth
When it comes to wicker furniture, all are not created equal. A lot of the strength and quality of the furniture you buy will depend on the weaving process. A tightly woven wicker set can last for years. You can also tell whether the rattan pieces chosen for the furniture are of high quality by inspecting them for blemishes. You’ll want to have a solid piece of furniture that you know will last the test of time. In order to find this type of quality you’ll need to purchase from companies that have a reputation for quality.
We deal only with companies that have proven themselves and select the businesses with the highest wicker reputations in the field. In order to ensure maximum frame strength, the materials chosen need to be high quality and woven together tightly.
