Rattan furniture is the perfect solution to elevating your outdoor space, providing simple ways to establish an aesthetically pleasing, functional garden to spend time in. While you could select many types of outdoor furniture, rattan is one of the best, as it has a stain-resistant surface that can last for years with proper care.
In this article, we'll detail our top rattan patio furniture options so you can take your garden aesthetic to the next level.
Before we get into the best rattan furniture, we need to ensure you know exactly why this material is one of the best options for your outdoor display. The primary reason rattan is excellent for outdoor uses is its durability, with long-lasting characteristics that enable consumers to enjoy their favorite outdoor furniture set for prolonged periods.
Rattan comes from vines woven together to create the durable, endearing surface of rattan furniture. Of course, the type of rattan derived from vines is natural and requires more dedicated care to keep the surface intact. Synthetic types of rattan are made from plastics, still using the woven technique to create a similar effect without as much maintenance needed.
However, synthetic rattan provides a different level of quality, with a less natural appearance that may put consumers off. As synthetic rattan is made from PE, there are negative environmental impacts that come with this type of furniture.
Opting for natural rattan is advised if your priority is to be sustainable, but it's important to follow care advice closely to ensure your furniture stands the test of time. Natural rattan is suitable for outdoor use but should be covered when not in use and stored indoors during harsh weather conditions. If rainwater gets trapped within the woven rattan, mildew can form, significantly impacting the material's quality, so keeping your furniture covered is important.
Additionally, direct sunlight can lead to the material fading, which again means it's advisable to cover up your furniture when you're not using it to prevent the quality from deteriorating. Although these steps may sound extensive, following them and implementing routine maintenance cleaning is pretty much all you'll need to do to prolong your rattan furniture's life and enjoy your outdoor furniture for years.
Now that we've covered the essential information surrounding rattan furniture, it's time to delve into the best pieces to invest in for your garden;

At Mojo Boutique, our furniture consists of sustainably sourced materials using upcycled or recycled wood for many of our designs.

For best results, keep your rattan furniture covered during rainfall to prevent mildew from occurring, and implement routine cleaning to keep the furniture in top condition.
Rattan furniture provides an excellent and straightforward way of transforming an outdoor space, with precious materials that deliver a warm aesthetic that pairs beautifully with natural elements such as greenery.
As the material requires little maintenance, you can enjoy various types of furniture, from tables to chairs, providing you with a cohesive patio. Adding pieces such as storage trunks will take your garden furniture to the next level and ensure you can keep your space tidy during the warm summer months when your garden gets busier.
High-quality, sustainable rattan is suitable for outdoor use. However, it's best to cover your furniture during poor weather conditions to prevent exposing the material to elements that may lead to mildew. Pairing covers with a cleaning routine will ensure your rattan is looked after and will last longer.
During summer, your rattan furniture will likely be used more frequently and stay outdoors for prolonged periods. To protect your natural rattan, oiling the surface is excellent, preventing mildew from forming as dampness creeps in over the colder months and keeping the furniture looking good as new.
