   Patio furniture and outdoor furniture is a great way to have an opportunity to spend more time outside with your
          family. Outdoor wicker is a good investment for outdoor deep seating, chairs, and chaise lounges.

    Wicker furniture has been around for thousands of years. Archeological findings even show that the
pharaohs of ancient Egypt used wicker furniture. Today, it is one of the most popular, widely collected,
and highly sought-after types of furniture. Wicker refers to plant-derived fibers that have been treated,
in order to make them hard and strong enough for making furniture. These fibers commonly come from
plants such as rattan, bamboo, reeds, and willows. Synthetic or man-made fibers have also been used
to make wicker furniture. They are stronger and more durable than plant-derived fibers. Surprisingly,
paper has been used to make wicker furniture. Antique wicker furniture made of paper is highly in
demand.

What makes wicker furniture so special? Wicker is very durable. It lasts for a very long time, to the
point that families have handed down their wicker furniture from generation to generation, much like
heirloom jewelry. In fact, there is a huge demand for antique wicker furniture, with collectors willing to
pay the highest price for the smallest piece. Wicker furniture is very versatile. They fit perfectly with any
design scheme, suit a wide range of tastes and come in different shapes, sizes, and colors. Wicker
furniture works well both indoors and outdoors. Indoors, they can be used in any room of the house,
from the living room, the bedroom, the kitchen, even the bathroom or powder room. Outdoors, they are
great on the patio, the porch, and in garden areas as well.

The most popular type of wicker furniture is the rattan wicker furniture. Rattan is the common name of
more than six hundred species of palms from the Calameae tribe, of the Arecaceae family. It grows
abundantly in Africa, Asia and Australia. These vine-like plants look similar to bamboo, but differ from
them in that the stems of the rattan are solid, while those of the bamboo are hollow, and that the
bamboo can grow on its own, while the rattan cannot.

Rattan is more durable compared to other materials and can withstand the forces of nature. Rattan
wicker furniture is the only type of wicker furniture that can be used outdoors, other than wicker
furniture made of synthetic fibers. Rattan furniture can be painted with any color. Like ordinary wood,
paint easily adheres to rattan. However, many prefer to keep their rattan furniture in their natural color,
choosing only to add a protective varnish over their prized piece.

Rattan wicker furniture is easy to care for and is very low maintenance. To keep them looking beautiful,
simply wipe them with a soft cloth. Mild detergents can be used for stains. Damaged rattan wicker
furniture, or any type of wicker furniture for that matter, can be sent to companies or persons who

specialize in restoring wicker furniture. There are even some who restore wicker furniture as a hobby.

Wicker furniture is light and its woven structure allows air to pass through, allowing for more ventilation
than any other type of material. It looks, feels, and even breathes like no other, making it an ideal
choice for the home.

                                        The Benefits Of Wicker Sunroom Furniture
                                                             By Adam Peters



 Wicker sunroom furniture can make your sunroom into that relaxing place to be. Choosing your
pieces wisely can help ensure that you are satisfied for many years to come.

Selecting the right wicker sunroom furniture for your room includes many different things. One thing
that you will want to keep in mind is that the price that is normally listed on the furniture is normally the
price without the cushions. If you want cushions, but do not like the material choices offered, then see
if they can order the cushions with a different fabric that you do like. If you cannot find the fabric that
fits your desired look, then you can always make cushions yourself or have them custom made from
your choice of fabric. You will need to decide whether you want stain guard or not. Keep in mind that
if you are entertaining, then protecting the cushion fabric can save you some stress, because it can
make spill treatment and cleaning much easier. That way you will be able to keep your cushions
looking nice for as long as possible.

Another issue is how much room that you have. A smaller room cannot hold as much wicker sunroom
furniture as a large room. To keep the room looking airy and open, then you will want to only use as
much furniture as you need, rather than loading up the room with furniture and making it look crowded.


Taking Care of Your Wicker Furniture

Wicker sunroom furniture does not need a great deal of attention to keep it looking beautiful. Dusting
the furniture pieces regularly can help remove some of the dirt and a damp cloth or vacuum cleaner
can get the rest of the dirt. If you want wicker in a particular color and cannot locate the right color,
then you can always paint it the color that you desire. If your wicker is covered with a sealant or
varnish, then you will need to prime it before painting, so that the paint will stick to the surface of the
wicker. You can also choose to sand the wicker if you need to, but you need to be sure that you do it
gently, so as not to destroy the wicker. If you see that some of the wicker weave is cracking or
splitting, then you can repaint it, stain it, or use a gloss to help keep it looking beautiful. If the weave in
your wicker sunroom furniture is starting to unravel, then you may want to consult a professional to see
if they can repair it. Get an estimate first, however, because it may be less expensive to simply
purchase new wicker sunroom furniture.
