Rattan Outdoor Furniture Sets
When it comes to outdoor furniture sets, there are plenty of options available to suit every taste. However, no other type of outdoor furniture has been as popular recently as our rattan furniture, and we have been providing some of the finest rattan outdoor furniture in NZ since 2011.
We believe our rattan furniture is so popular primarily just because it just looks great. The classic woven rattan texture is a cool blend of country chic and modern minimalism, adding a touch of elegance to any garden or outdoor space. It also comes in different colours from greys, to browns, and blacks so finding an outdoor furniture set that suits you will be a breeze.
A rattan outdoor furniture set from Modern Style is also made to withstand damaging UV rays and is water-resistant. This makes it durable, low maintenance and you can be sure it will continue to look fantastic at your place for years.
All About Rattan Furniture
There the two types of rattan furniture available in the market, and it can be difficult to pick between the two, so you may be wondering about the difference between the two and which would be best suited to you.
Basically, natural rattan furniture is perfectly at home indoors, while synthetic rattan furniture is ideal for the garden and all places outside. Unlike some other outdoor furniture, our rattan outdoor furniture sets are purposely designed to be long lasting. We look at each element that makes up our furniture and make sure that we use the best products that can withstand all the elements that New Zealand weather can throw at us.
Natural Rattan Furniture
Natural rattan is strong and durable, while being light. It come from different species of climbing palm which grow rapidly in the jungles of Southeast Asia.
Well-suited for conservatory furniture, it doesn’t like being outside: too much sunlight can make it brittle, too much rain and it may rot, and frost may make it split.
Synthetic Rattan / Faux Rattan
Synthetic rattan is lighter and stronger than natural rattan and resistant to all weather conditions. It’s resistant to UV light, so it won’t become brittle and crack, and colours won’t fade. It doesn’t swell, rot or get mouldy, so it’s quite able to handle the odd bit of rain that gets thrown at us here in New Zealand, so it’s fine to use around the pool or at the beach.
A rattan outdoor furniture set is made by weaving a high-quality synthetic wicker ‘thread’ around a strong aluminium frame protected with a powder coating.
However, as with everything in life, the longevity of your rattan garden set will depend on the quality of fibre used. Cheaper rattan furniture will be weaker than rattan from a brand that invests in quality.
At Modern Style, we’ve been sourcing, designing and manufacturing some of the highest quality outdoor furniture and accessories for over a decade. At Modern Style, we use highly durable Rino Rattan in our range of rattan outdoor furniture that can withstand being left outside all year round.
Maintaining Rattan Furniture
Synthetic rattan furniture requires virtually no care other than routine cleaning. Simply wipe any spillages or stains with soapy water and a cloth.
At Modern Style Outdoor Furniture, we provide a 5-year structural warranty but a little care and attention, your rattan garden furniture could be going strong in 20 years.
Our Cushions Can Be Left Outdoors
Our rattan outdoor furniture comes with cushions made from French Sunbrella® high performance fabric. Sunbrella fabric feels like an ordinary cotton fabric but with the softness and good looks of cotton canvas, and the longevity and fade resistance of an acrylic. Acrylics are hydrophobic, so don’t absorb water. However, the ‘cotton-like’ weave of the fabric allows moisture to escape and the fabric to breathe. Sunbrella will last ten times longer than cotton outdoor fabrics and is great for all furniture, both for indoor and outdoor cushions.
Cushions With Quick Dry Foam
Quick Dry Foam is the core foam used inside all our outdoor cushions. Specifically engineered with large open pores for maximum water drainage and air circulation, they really are a quick dry, whether just damp, or saturated. Basically, when it rains, water goes through the cushion cover and into the inner cushion. By placing the cushions on their sides, they will be dry in a relatively short time. Built in anti-microbial protection prohibits the growth of mould, mildew and fungus.
