Traditionally Rattan is a form of palm vine. Mainly used for the production of furniture items such as baskets and chairs, and can be found in dense jungle areas such as South America and South East Asia. This type of furniture is usually very expensive and due to the increasing developments in technology, this type of rattan material can be completely imitated and has proved popular as the latest form of outdoor furniture. Some could even say that it rivals the aluminium outdoor furniture ranges that we see outside many cafes or restaurants. Mainly used outside synthetic rattan furniture is very durable and can withstand even some of the most extreme weather conditions.
The reason that rattan outdoor furniture is popular is that it has a very distinct aesthetic look. Most common furniture sets include dining tables or cafe tables with wicker outdoor chairs, lounge beds and arm chairs. Rattan can also be used to make garden sofas and coffee tables with some even including glass inserts. All weather foam seat pads are usually placed on the chairs or sofas for comfort and some are even attached to the framework itself. Another piece of outdoor furniture that is proving popular particularly outside bars, restaurants and cafes is all weather teak furniture.
Available with aluminium table bases to complete the look. Synthetic teak is just made from high density polystyrene which is combined with various pigments in order to create a robust and durable aesthetically pleasing set of outdoor furniture. Outdoor synthetic teak tables and chairs are popular among commercial properties whereas rattan furniture is more common among the domestic market. Both types of outdoor furniture are available for free delivery from Cafe Reality.
