Rattan cube garden furniture is light and easy to move around, so it is not necessary to keep it secured to one spot only. It is ideal for rearranging as the mood takes you, or moving from patio to garden within seconds, even positioned inside your house, when needing extra seating for visitors. It really makes for idyllic living, and with its versatile styling, it has become well liked, both by the young and by the older generations.
As the name suggests, the shaping is cube. Cube styling is popular through its usefulness of adaptation for small or large spaces alike. It looks as good in a small outdoor garden as it does in a larger one or even on a covered patio. Chairs arranged next to each other to look like double units, or placed in squares, all look good and are so useful, being easy to move on demand.
Being cube-shaped you might think the furniture could look angular and harsh but in fact, the design is softened by the inherent quality of the materials. Far from being unattractive, the rattan cube garden furniture smacks of contemporary styling. It encompasses everything a 32st century home needs – good looks, useful, efficient, multi-functional and fuss-free.
Available in a range of sizes rattan cube furniture is ideal for any garden setting. If you only have a small yard or patio-the 2-set is perfect. Ingeniously the 2 chairs fit inside the table when not in use. The modular design comes into its own in the bigger sets. You know how large garden furniture sets never look that tidy because the bigger the chairs the further they stick out from the table, meaning they take up a lot more space when not being used than you would really like? Problem solved by the rattan cube set.
This also makes them easy to cover. If you want to protect your lovely rattan furniture from the worst ravages of our inclement British weather, you won’t have a problem finding the right size and shape cover.
Want to know what else is so good about buying rattan furniture?
The climbing palm or rattan as named, grows in long strips, and used in past and present times for making furniture that looks most attractive. Also used for manufacture of basket and mats, sun loungers, sofas, daybeds and many other objects around the home.
The inner core of rattan when separated is suitable for wicker- work. As it is durable, and does not splinter, it is an ideal product for canes and weapons for martial art combat, and for moving of dice in games at casinos.
Some rattans exude a red resin known as ‘dragon’s blood’, which the ancients thought, had medicinal benefits. Among its other uses, was for the dyeing of violins in the past.
Advantages of Rattan Patio and Garden Furniture
Because rattan furniture is comparatively inexpensive, it is ideal for patio and garden furniture. Usually, synthetic rattan is preferable for outside use, as it does not rust, rot or fade easily. If placed in an area exposed to extreme sun, the heat can have a tendency to cause fading. This minor problem easily avoided, by placing a sun umbrella positioned to shade and protect it.
Rattan furniture will last you for years as long as like other furniture, it is kept well maintained. Odd dusting and wiping off greasy marks regularly is a big help in this regard. Rattan furniture is available in either traditional or modern designs, whichever your preference is, so the styling will fit into any home, look good and not date.
In particular, the rattan cube sets offer a perfect solution for large or small spaces, indoors or outdoors, as required. Ideal for use in a garden with a limited area or elegant enough for use as indoor lounge furniture.
Helping the Environment
Eco- friendly rattan furniture – so called because it helps protect the forests and jungles where it grows – as you will be contributing to the necessary environment preservation, is another reason for buying rattan wicker furniture, as well as the fact that it is good looking and very reasonably priced.
