Rattan Garden Furniture

ll of our rattan garden furniture sets are made from ultraviolet (UV) light resistant weatherproof polyethylene (PE) rattan. This ensures that our rattan is hard wearing, durable, easily cleaned, and that the colour does not fade in the sun. The rattan is woven onto a rust resistant frame and can be left out over winter if required. The cushion covers and fillings are made with UK fire resistant material and the covers can be removed and washed.

Our beautiful furniture is available in both modern and traditional styles and in a range of sizes. From versatile dining tables for intimate spaces to luxuriously large entertaining dining sets, each are available with co-ordinating cabinet furniture to create your ideal living space.

We provide our services throughout Essex, London, Norfolk and Suffolk. We directly import the outdoor garden furniture from our own factories in the Far East so that we can provide you with Rattan Garden Furniture of incomparable quality, design and price.Our main focus for the past 30 years has been to to provide unique designs at unbeatable prices.

We provide an elegant collection of luxurious yet affordable rattan furniture which includes dining sets, sofa sets, corner sofas, sun loungers, day beds and many more accessories with a wide range of sizes, styles and colours.

Rattan, from which most of this furniture is made, is a unique palm plant found in parts of south-east Asia, and characterized by its slender stems and vine-like growing patterns. As its grain grows vertically, instead of fanning out like most hardwoods, it is considered one of the strongest woods in the world. To make rattan furniture, the straight wood is steamed, bent into the desired shape, and then dried — once dried, it retains its shape permanently.

What is synthetic rattan?

Synthetic rattan is a remarkably authentic looking substitute, providing the look and feel of real rattan with none of the frailty associated with exposure to the weather.

Typically used for furniture, synthetic rattan can be exposed to all sorts of temperature changes and weather conditions without suffering any ill effects.

Garden furniture in the UK may well get caught in a downpour, even during the summer months, plus there’s no guarantee of any sunshine. Synthetic rattan won’t fade in the sunlight, and can be left outside in the cold weather as well. Freezing temperatures, frost and even snow won’t have any effect on the quality of the rattan so there’s no need to cover up or put it into storage.

This is where rattan effect garden furniture, and iola, come in! Our rattan effect garden furniture is not traditional rattan, yet it is also not a cheap substitute. Some strains of rattan effect garden furniture are made from very low-quality, ‘plastic-y’ man-made materials which look dreadful and perform badly too.

This is not the case at iola. We use the very best, German-engineered synthetic rattan which has been expertly developed to look just like the real thing but offer incredible durability, weather resistance and flexibility. We’ve kept the gorgeous soul of real rattan but given it a smart, modern twist.
