Wicker table has been a long time favorite. There are numerous reasons why this kind of furniture has held its place for so lengthy as a preferred outdoor choice for furniture. Wicker table is either natural or synthetic. The natural version can be made from cane material or thin branches, even reeds have been known to be made into wicker. Traditionally natural wicker table is made from the willow. The material is processed and woven always into a pattern. Synthetic wicker is usually plastic that’s woven into a traditional wicker pattern. Wicker is much more of the art of weaving material than it is a substance.
This type of furniture is durable when it is well made. It can withstand the elements and is broadly maintenance free. It is always available in an array of styles which makes it a good choice for mixing and matching pieces. It looks great even after years of use. It becomes weathered over time which makes it appear much more attractive. As it becomes weathered it has a very distinguished finish to it. It can be easily painted if the natural look is not for you. It is comfortable and very sturdy.
If it is not really nicely made it can unravel in certain sections and pieces can break off. There is a treatment process that’s very important in creating this type of furniture if it’s not followed during manufacturing and the wicker is not really given enough time to cure, or if the process is rushed the furniture will suffer and be of a lesser quality. It can become dry and brittle over time if it was not processed properly during the manufacturing of it.
There are numerous styles and patterns to choose from. The natural wicker will be more expensive than the synthetic wicker, but the synthetic wicker will probably last longer than the natural. There are couches, tables, chairs, rocking chairs, foot stools, benches and a host of other items that can be made from wicker. Each item can be purchased individually or it can be purchased as a set. Usually there are removable cushions on the furniture that are very easily changed out to add a different style to your set each season.
The style flexibility is unlimited. Wicker table is elegant, usually in vogue and a great way to decorate your deck or patio. It is always reasonably priced and can come in numerous styles and can be built for many functions.
