Rattan Bench – When we think of wicker or rattan furniture, the first idea that usually comes to mind is either an outdoor furniture or some piece of rustic, old, cheap country. However both are elements are frequently used in interior design, as you will see in a number of ideas to enhance what we offer in wicker and rattan for exterior and interior, with both low-cost and high design parts.
Although both materials are often confused at street level, they are not really the same. The rattan bench is a natural product that comes from a particular variety of vine originally from the Far East. Despite being very light in appearance, it has a solid core that makes it tremendously resistant to cracks, bumps, and moisture, which increases its durability. In addition, given the great length of the vine (up to hundreds of meters), rattan furniture can be made in one piece, continuous and without joints, increasing its aesthetics and resistance.

The wicker, on the other hand, comes from a bush that grows in the field naturally and that exists in many countries, although it seems to be native to Ancient Egypt. It is a lightweight material, very light and flexible. It also allows the use of paints and varnishes without absorbing them, which increases their decorative possibilities. Most of the time both materials are mixed to enhance the advantages of both (greater flexibility in the case of the wicker and greater resistance in the case of the rattan).
Although its use indoors is already widespread, its high resistance to weather factors makes it the perfect candidate for outdoor decoration: patios, gardens, balconies, terraces, and porches are their natural habitat. The mixture of wicker or rattan bench with glass or upholstery has made these elements the kings of the exterior design, depends to the warmth that brings both sight and touch. So you know, with good seats are ideal for those long holiday rests!
