The popularity of rattan garden and patio furniture has risen exponentially over the last few years. The furniture’s versatility and the range of styles available means that it can be used as both indoor and outside furniture without looking out of place. Both natural and synthetic rattan furniture are very popular throughout the UK and the USA as well.
The modern style of the furniture means that it appeals to a range of homeowners, from the younger generation who want something a bit different for their gardens to older homeowners who want the comfort and something more fundamental than a deck chair to relax on.
This post will take a look at some of the more popular styles of rattan patio furniture that are available.
Modern Rattan Patio Furniture
The most popular style of rattan furniture is the modern look. Synthetic rattan can be dyed any color from white or black to red or green, you can get as creative as you wish and the match the furniture pieces with colorful cushions.
The rattan sofa seating sets that are available tend to be very angular which adds to the modern look of the furniture.
If you only have a small garden or patio do not worry as it is possible to get much smaller items than the deep-seater sofas. You can buy chair and table sets that only have two or three chairs if you wish or you can buy large sets with lots of chairs.
Traditional Rattan Patio Furniture
Traditional rattan patio furniture is also very popular with people of all ages. A lot of people get confused with the difference between wicker and rattan. It is possible to buy a piece of furniture that is both wicker and rattan as wicker is the process of weaving the materials in a certain way rather than the material itself.
Traditional rattan furniture can come in a variety of colors as well although most commonly in a tan, brown or black color as this suits the style more. These pieces have softer edges and would look more at home in a country house rather than a modern new-build flat.
Again you can choose nice cushions to go with your furniture to make it more comfortable to sit in for a long period of time. Small side tables and coffee tables are also available with glass tops that do not take up too much room and are perfect for keeping drinks, newspapers or books that you are using.
Large Rattan Patio Furniture
One of the best-selling rattan furniture styles are the deep-seating outdoor seating areas. You can buy them as large or as small as you wish but an average sized seating area can seat between 4 and 6 people.
These funky outdoor and indoor furniture pieces would not look out of place next to a pool in Spain. They can often be seen featured in music videos and are very on-trend at the moment.
