I don’t know if you have ever noticed but styles of garden furniture are something you either love or hate. Perhaps you may feel the same way about PE rattan garden sofabeds and the more compact rattan daybeds. Stone benches can be beautiful but expensive and not temporary or moveable.
Those plastic patio chairs from the supermarket are cheap and cheerful but hardly comfortable or rigid for very long. I’m inclined to tilt towards metal garden furniture with glass top tables but again with with traditional style and Riviera seating not always ideal for every garden or environment. Wooden furniture is indeed beautiful too but needs regular treatment and care.
Wicker garden furniture has been popular throughout the ages and the modern day faux rattan garden furniture available more than replicates its original. A PE rattan garden sofabed is ideal for all weathers, can stay in the rain and dry quickly without too much hassle and will not be faded much by the sun. It’s only the furnishings like the cushions that need removing or a cover to fit.

But then you have to consider wear and tear of other furniture made from wood or cheap plastic. I’ve never heard anyone say they’ve had their Asda plastic chairs since 1972. However PE rattan and its composite materials could well last twenty five years with the proper care and attention although guarantees tend to be for a minimum of five years,.

Primarily because they don’t need much work to keep clean, the frames of most of these synthetic polyethylene resin weave designs are placed on top of an aluminium frame – which is where the strength and durable comes from and sets itself apart from true rattan and wicker garden furniture.
As mentioned previously, it’s only really the furnishing that you need be concerned about and removed or covered. As the actual rattan sofa beds and rattan daybed frames embody anti-mould and mildew properties that can withstands the winter months. Pictured above and below is the Oceans Hawaiian Outdoor Rattan Sofa Set (OC-10-HAWAI-0399 ). A rattan sofabed paired with two rattan chairs.
This a 3 seater rattan sofa that can be extended to become a lounger for two or as Oceans would refer to it, a double sun lounger. Usually offered at a competitive price and is why it can be deemed cheap rattan furniture, it comes with two chairs and a rattan coffee table. Not forgetting the all important all weather cover, that is really for protecting the furnishings and cushions in the short term.
You will no doubt consider that most plastic or artificial garden furniture to be green but this retailer goes one step further and provides distinct colours.
