What Is Rattan Furniture?

Rattan itself is a broad term for a group of old-world climbing palms. Woven with a wicker technique, rattan garden furniture creates an aesthetically pleasing addition to any garden or patio with a style that is synonymous with outdoor living.


Modern synthetic grey rattan, however, is made from polyethylene which not only grants it added durability and weather-resistant, but a decidedly more contemporary look. That's why modern rattan sets are becoming increasingly popular - they're cheaper, less work to maintain, and they look fantastic. You'll find a wide range of rattan outdoor furniture here at BillyOh.

How To Clean Rattan Furniture

One of the best things about polyethene (PE) rattan is that it's incredibly easy to maintain. Keep your grey rattan look as good as new by simply:

  • Dusting any glass tables and in between the weave
  • Spraying down with a cleaner or diluted soapy water
  • Wiping dry

You could even use a garden hose or a pressure washer on a very light setting - that's just how easy and resilient PE rattan is. For more information, check out this guide on cleaning rattan furniture.

How Long Does Rattan Furniture Last?

Synthetic or PE rattan is well-known for its weatherproof qualities including its resistance to:

  • Rain
  • Snow
  • Frost
  • Harsh UV rays

Consider that the aluminium frames of our BillyOh rattan furniture are also powder-coated and you have a garden set that could last you anywhere been 5-10 years (and even beyond if properly stored and maintained). That's why rattan garden sets are such a great investment for their price.

Range of Rattan Garden Furniture Sets 

At BillyOh, our rattan garden furniture incorporates contemporary designs with a high-quality product to give you plenty of choice when furnishing your outdoor space. So whether it's for a backyard or a garden terrace, we've got a wide range of rattan garden furniture perfect for every space and budget.

Rattan Weave

Rattan weave is the merging of rattan (a bamboo-like plant) with wicker-style weaving to make aesthetically pleasing and sturdy garden furniture.

Rattan Cube Garden Furniture

Just one of our many garden furniture sets, the rattan cube set is the height of functionality. With pieces of furniture like cube chairs and stools, these outdoor furniture sets tuck away under each other to form a cube when not in use. For quality garden furniture with ease of use, think rattan cube sets.

Patio Sets

Rattan and rattan weave sets are perfect for use as patio furniture. They're lightweight and easy to move around and they're also highly weather-resistant and low maintenance.

Removable Cushions

Our rattan sets feature chairs with cushions that are soft and deep. These grey cushions are in-keeping with the aesthetic of the set, and a padded cushion can not only protect your bottom but your furniture from wear and tear!

Rattan Garden Sofa Set

In our range of rattan effect garden furniture we have dining sets as well as products intended for kicking back and relaxing in your garden.

Corner sofas

A rattan corner sofa can be the perfect way to get the most out of your space. Fitting perfectly into tough-to-use spaces, these modular corner sofas come in a wide selection of synthetic rattan models. Just take this rattan four-piece set, for example.

Rattan Dining Sets

Our range of garden furniture also includes sets designed for dining, but which work just as well for a coffee or sitting and reading.

Casual Dining Sets

Our casual dining sets are made from weather-resistant synthetic rattan and offer a range of buying choices, including our firepit garden sets.

Rattan Chairs

Rattan garden chairs are easy to maintain and light enough to move around that working out a configuration to suit your group couldn't be easier.

Rattan Tables

A rattan dining table offers a lovely centrepiece to a set. Made with aluminium frames and stylish synthetic rattan weave, we offer sets with a garden table as well as a glass coffee table conversation set. Find the perfect size and style for your garden today.

Rectangular Table

Whether it's a dining table or a garden fire pit table, we have garden sets with glass tables, fire pits and even a combination of the two to suit everyone's tastes.

For larger outdoor spaces, we suggest either a rattan dining or sofa set. Start by measuring up your space, leaving room for access around, and consider where you want the focus of your garden or patio to be. A centrepiece like a firepit table can act not only as a talking, but a focal point.

Synthetic rattan is light so it's highly portable. It's also weather resistant and built over a rust and corrosion-resistant frame of powder-coated aluminium. Synthetic rattan furniture represents a budget-friendly price point compared to natural rattan with much less maintenance hassle. A rattan garden sofa can be the perfect place to relax, read, or chat, and removable cushions make for easy upkeep.

Compared to wooden garden furniture, grey rattan is certainly more contemporary. In this sense, rattan is more similar to metal garden furniture and both represent ease-of-use at an attractive price point. They are, however, not as customisable as wooden garden furniture which can be stained or painted.

Look for something made from a durable and weather-resistant material (like synthetic rattan) at a price point that suits you. For the best quality spend as much as you can (and think is reasonable) at the outset rather than having to replace your furniture sets every couple of years.

Our rattan furniture is built to withstand both intense sunlight and harsh British weather. Still, all garden furniture requires some care and attention. If storage isn't an option, at least invest in garden furniture covers and remove cushions when not in use.

Synthetic rattan furniture is incredibly easy to maintain. For the glass tables, dust and then spray and dry with glass clean and a microfibre cloth. For the rattan itself, a simply wipe or even hose down is sufficient. For more, check out this guide to cleaning rattan furniture.

Rattan furniture is highly weatherproof and the frames are resistant to rust and corrosion. For peace of mind, though, we still recommend storing garden furniture indoors or at least under cover when not in use.

Rattan is actually the plant from which the furniture is made and wicker refers to the weaving process or style. Rattan is then split into natural or synthetic (plastic rattan or polyrattan).

Synthetic rattan, like the rattans sets we sell here at BillyOh generally last longer, are UV-resistant, and are weather-resistant.
