Rattan Sofas Give a Natural Touch to Your Garden Seating
Rattan furniture has that natural look that goes so well with your outdoor living space. A sofa lets you nap in the breeze or sit with a friend. If you add a few more pieces, your garden is all set for entertaining.Is all rattan garden furniture made of the same material?
Rattan may be either natural or synthetic. The natural material is from the rattan plant. Natural rattan is subject to weather damage, so if you want natural rattan furniture to use outdoors, you should cover it when it’s not in use.
Most garden furniture that looks like rattan is actually synthetic. The plastic or resin material is much more resistant to rain and sun. Synthetic rattan is often not labelled as such, but natural rattan usually does have “natural” in the description, so you can use that as a guide.
Both natural and synthetic rattan, available on eBay, are quite durable, so if you find a used garden table and chairs or rattan corner sofa cheap, don’t be afraid to give them a look.Design options for your rattan garden corner sofa
Once you’ve chosen your material, you can start looking at designs. A versatile rattan corner sofa is a brilliant option. Think about the following design features when you’re making your choice:
- Seating capacity - Some rattan garden sofas have two seats on each side, some have three, and some have two on one side and three on the other. Don’t just choose based on your preference, though. Measure to make sure the sofa you like will fit your space.
- Modular - Some rattan corner sofas are modular, and some are not. Modular units let you rearrange the components to suit your whims. You may be able to separate a chair or bench to form a conversation group.
- Arm style - Some rattan sofas have straight arms, and some have rounded arms. If you’re dreaming of lazy afternoons lying on the sofa, the rounded arms provide a more comfortable prop for a pillow.
You may want to add a matching garden table and chairs to your new sofa. Chairs usually match the sofa in style and colour, but there is more variety in tables. Do you like the clean lines of a bright glass table? Maybe you prefer to match with a stylish round or square rattan table. All these options are available on eBay whether as a used, new, or pre-owned rattan corner sofa set.
