Types of Wicker Furniture

Types of Wicker Furniture

Think back to your parents' or grandparents' front porch: What furniture fills your memories? For many people, there's likely a piece of wicker in those pictures from the past. Wicker is a lovely addition to outdoor spaces; it wonderfully complements a number of styles of architecture and garden design. And wicker has kept pace with advances in furniture design and materials, with upgrades and updates that make it more resilient. There are three main types of wicker -- natural, rattan, and synthetic -- that you'll encounter.

Natural

Wicker is not a material in and of itself; it is a method or style of weaving and furniture design. Natural wicker can be made of various plant fibers and stems that are woven together; those may include bamboo and willow.

Rattan

Different parts of the rattan vine -- stems, canes, and reeds -- can be used to make rattan wicker furniture. As with natural wicker furniture, rattan wicker must be protected from the elements with sealing and finishing.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Any furniture purchase is an investment -- one that you hope pays dividends not only in comfort but in durability, longevity, and flexibility for you and your family and friends. It should be a choice that works well with your home's architecture and your yard's design. It's essential to find pieces that you can review for several key purchase considerations. Those include pattern, durability, cover, and care. Start with this short guide to get started on your wicker furniture purchase.

Pattern

Wicker may be woven in a variety of loose or tight patterns, such as chevron. Those patterns lend themselves to several styles, including cottage and traditional.

Durability

The pattern and material of wicker may determine its outdoor durability. Some natural and rattan wicker chairs may be better suited for covered porches and patios; synthetic materials typically withstand rain and sun better.

Cover

Based on the material and year-round location of your wicker furniture, you may need to invest in covers as well. These can be used after a day of enjoying the furniture is complete or during off-use months when furniture is stored.

Care

Synthetic wicker typically needs to be cleaned regularly according to manufacturer directions. Natural and rattan wicker requires periodic refinishing, painting, or staining, depending on how the material is finished.
