Outdoor Furniture FAQ

What type of outdoor furniture lasts the longest?

Long-lasting outdoor furniture is generally made from durable materials that can stand up to the elements, such as teak wood, aluminium, and wrought iron.

What’s the difference between rattan and wicker furniture?

While the terms are often used interchangeably, rattan and wicker are actually quite different. Rattan is a vine that is found in the tropical regions of Southeast Asia, amongst other locations. It is a very commonly used material in outdoor furniture. On the other hand, wicker is a weaving technique that is commonly used to make furniture. Wicker furniture can be made with natural or synthetic materials.

Does rattan furniture go mouldy?

Rattan is a popular material for outdoor furniture thanks to its durability and natural water resistance. However, it’s important to know that rattan furniture can still be affected by mould if it is not cared for properly.
