Rattan is making its comeback this year as a material for furniture for your home, both indoor and outdoor. Here are some description about this material and its usage. Rattan is a considered to be a relative of palm tree. It is a type of a vine tree that rapidly grows in the forests of South Eastern region. It is grown in the shape of a pole, and the diameter varies between one to three inches. Rattan is considered to be one of the strongest woods and has the ability to grow up high a hundred feet.
It is totally different from the bamboo pole and holds a strong core and is durable and very hard to break. The solid cores of rattan along with its vertical grains are harvested, and are cut into smaller sections and generally steamed to give various shapes. The outer skin of the rattan pole, which is known as peel is generally used to bind the furniture joints together.
You can look at the specification of Rattan to understand why it is being tipped to be the interior decor and garden trend of 2017 as it is one of the fewest materials to break the barrier between both indoor and outdoor purpose furniture and decor. This modern furniture is available in a wide range of sofas, tables, chairs and accessories.
Firstly, I want to talk about Rattan in general as what makes this style of furniture so desirable and demandable in 2017 because it is Eco-Friendly. When we talk about Eco-Friendly we can understand the depth of nature we get into it.
It is obvious that we all love something that is very easy to maintain. You don’t require any fancy cleaning products to keep your rattan looking clean and fresh. How to clean is very simple and you can use bowl of warm water, some dishwashing detergent, a soft cloth and some lacquer.
And Finally, Rattan is a lightweight material. So the products made from it are, lightweight. Ideally suitable for one person to move around the house or the garden easily. This makes maintenance and cleaning nice and straightforward.
