Rattan Furniture Designs
Rattan is a natural product that grows rapidly in
tropical climate countries. Rattans climb as they grow
and are relatively thin in thickness, between 3mm – 6mm
however there length will constantly increase throughout
the life of the plant.
This incredible growth rate makes it very easy to
replace the rattan used in the rattan
In comparison to most timbers grown in the area, the
rattan industry is obviously much more environmentally
The best quality rattan comes from the northern regions
of Indonesia where most of our rattan furniture is
sourced. The rattan grown here has a higher density
to that found in other areas of Southeast Asia and
is less brittle therefore making it a longer lasting
Rattan furniture is an ideal way to furnish a sunroom,
conservatory or gazebo due to its durability under
the conditions. Conservatories tend to get extremely
hot and sometimes very cold, and many wood will split
under these conditions.
Leather will dry out and become easily torn, not to
mention the fact that the colour will fade.
The natural colour of the rattan will not change over
the years unless the furniture has a gloss finish.
Here at the Cane Furiture Company we matt finish our
entire furniture range.
Once sourced and processed, highly skilled tradesmen
who pride themselves on a tight rattan weave then weave
the rattan around the solid frame.
Our entire range is hand made, even the seagrass furniture - we do not make flat packed
conservatory and garden furniture because not only does it leave
obviously gaps in the weave, but it also creates unnecessary
weaknesses in the furniture.
