Rattan has been a favorite in patio furniture for longer perhaps than we can remember. Its timeless qualities have been highly sought after by both the well to do and those of use that simply want great furniture for our porches and patios. Rattan does not come without its problems though; being a natural material it needs more care other types of furniture. That is why synthetic rattan is becoming the furniture to buy.
Not only does synthetic rattan offer the same beauty that natural rattan does, but it is much more durable as well. This means that you do not have to keep it under cover all the time and if you live in an area that is humid or gets a lot of intense sun it will stay looking just as good. Natural rattan is subject to the elements, molds and mildews easily and requires a lot of care to stay looking nice, with synthetic rattan you will get long life and furniture that will stay looking great for years.
