The makings of rattan garden furniture
Rattan furniture is made of the Rattan vine, also known as the Manila plant. This vine originates in Southeast Asia, and is well-loved for its strength, versatility and overall aesthetic appeal once woven into furniture or other items.
A rattan garden sofa, for example, is easy to treat with linseed oil to keep it durable, which is a big part of its popularity. It's easy to confuse wicker and rattan furniture but, broadly speaking, rattan refers to the substance itself, while wicker more commonly describes the weaving process.
The interwoven texture of rattan provides a somewhat mouldable base for comfort, though you may want to invest in some garden furniture cushions if you want that oh-so-sumptuous, sink-in plush effect.
Rattan is naturally brown, and oils and vanishes typically make this natural colour a few shades darker. That's why brown rattan furniture is most prominent in this category.
Natural versus synthetic rattan
Natural rattan is beautiful, although if you're looking for furniture that'll be incredibly weather-resistant, you should look out for synthetic rattan options - which are also often more affordable. PVC or PE rattan furniture is incredibly long-lasting, and far more durable in wind, rain or other weather extremes than natural rattan. It's also easier to paint than natural rattan. If you want a look that isn't traditional brown rattan furniture, it might be worth giving the synthetics a go.
While the ultimate choice will surely be down to your personal preference, synthetic rattan garden furniture has been perfected by the best manufacturers to be nearly impossible to tell apart from natural rattan garden furniture - in look, in feel and in comfort.
As far as strength goes, you'll find that every kind of rattan furniture - natural rattan and synthetic rattan alike - is super resilient. In addition to this, it’s also lightweight yet sturdy, giving you both the confidence and ability to move it around the garden with ease.
In essence, the only glaring difference between natural and synthetic rattan is its level of weather resistance. If you don’t mind taking a few minutes at the end of the day to cover your furniture with a sheet to protect it from the unpredictable UK weather, or you have a well-secluded area to store it far from the elements when not in use, natural could be a wonderful option for you. Alternatively, if you prefer a no-fuss approach to furniture you can leave outdoors all year round, synthetic rattan furniture may well be the way to go.

Rattan furniture FAQs
Does rattan furniture last?
Rattan furniture is impressively resistant to both general wear and tear and the weather. As a result, it can be used both inside and outside without issue. As long as you take good care of it, it can be put to good use for a long time - a trait that makes it very cost-effective in the long run. If you buy a set of garden furniture covers they'll last even longer, as covers protects them from water damage and fading in the sun.
How can I make rattan furniture more comfortable?
Many rattan chairs or sofas come with cushions, but you can make them even more comfortable with the help of pads and outdoor cushions. Alternatively, why not introduce even more comfort by snapping up a matching outdoor footstool or investing in some colourful scatter cushions? No matter how you choose to welcome your guests, a comfy rattan furniture set always goes down a treat!
