Furniture made of rattan is becoming more and more popular, especially here in the UK. Rattan gives a rustic, tropical look to furniture in a similar way to vime. However, it doesn’t have that “darker” look vime furniture usually has. Rattan ones tend to be lighter and have a more welcoming feeling, which is exactly why it is taking over the market nowadays.
The tropical and rustic look is due to how they are made and from where they come from. Rattan is made from vegetal fibers extracted from a type of palm tree called Calamos Rotang, which is native to Asia and Oceania. The skin of the plant’s vines is peeled, dried, and then woven around a wood or aluminum frame to create the furniture. It is very sturdy and comfortable.
However, natural rattan is not exactly ideal for outdoor environments, such as a garden. Direct exposure to sunlight and rain and make it wear out quickly, meaning the furniture will get uglier and weaker. They don’t last long in these conditions. Due to that, furniture companies either apply some kind of treatment to the fibers (such as varnish) or use plastic strands (polyethylene or vinyl) instead of the fibers, weaving it around the frames in a similar way.
