Rattan Furniture

Now you can bring that carefree island feeling into your backyard living area with rattan patio furniture. Rattan is a cane like plant that grows in the tropics and is known for its strength and durability.

What Is Rattan?

In the past, Rattan furniture would not be considered all-weather outdoor furniture, rather it was for indoor use only due to its high maintenance to keep it looking good. However, due to the new process of coating the rattan and wicker with a durable resin coating, beautiful outdoor rattan and wicker furniture is now practically maintenance free.

What Are The Advantages Of Wicker And Rattan Chairs?

Wicker is a process, in most island cultures, of weaving together any plant-like material to form baskets, mats, hats or furniture. On the other hand, Rattan is a type of cane, bendable and strong enough to form durable furniture.

How to Choose the Best Rattan Furniture?

For a different look, you may also want to try bamboo patio furniture. Previously, all of these products would need upkeep, rubbing oil into the dry wicker and constant cleaning to keep the dirt from the weave. If you have ever owned this type of furniture, then you would understand the importance of upkeep.

The time that you spend cleaning your outdoor wicker chairs, especially your white wicker outdoor furniture, can now be a thing of the past. With resin coated wicker and rattan. all you will have to do is wipe or hose it down for that new look and you will be done.  You would not want to have the embarrassment of having your guests poked by a piece of broken wicker, or having flaked white paint shed all over them.

Hammocks are Beneficial to Your Health

Hammock

Rope hammocks can reduce back pain

Most of us sit on our butts all day long, and that isn’t good for us for a lot of reasons. You might think it’s comfortable to sit, but sitting isn’t a natural thing our human bodies were made to do. Unfortunately, it’s something most of us have to live with, especially if we work at the office. Sitting, especially sitting uninterrupted for many hours, is one of the most common causes of neck and back pain.

At some point in your life, you’ll experience neck and back pain. It’s possible you’re suffering from these aches right now. You know what’s more comfortable than sitting down? It’s not lying on your bed. It’s lying on a portable rope hammock. Whether you choose to hang it inside your house or outside in your garden, having your own hammock can help ease back pain. Who knew hammocks weren’t just for lazing around? In fact, therapists even recommend lying on a hammock for people suffering from neck and back pains.

Unlike lying on the ground or even on your bed, there are no pressure points on a hammock. It hugs your body like a cocoon hugs a budding butterfly. This distributes the weight of your body evenly and realigns your spine.
