In today's market place you can find a plethora of reproduced chairs, desks, tables, storage units, lighting, and accessories inspired by the industrial era, but if you truly want an industrial look, try searching for original items that can be found in salvage yards, flea markets and junk shops, and re-purpose them, or use them as is to add a bit of character and drama to a space. Many of today's manufacturers are designing pieces that really bring back the industrial era and while some of these items are pricey, they are great for adding historical character in today's spaces.
Most of the clout natural materials hold as bases for both indoor and outdoor furniture stem from their long production history. Some of the fibres used to produce outdoor furniture in the 21st century are exactly the same used by the Ancient Egyptians when they first began using the technique of weaving, several centuries before Christ. This traditional aspect is appealing to most home-owners, and goes a long way towards explaining the significant popularity these materials continue to enjoy to this day.
Yet, popular as it is, rattan garden furniture is by no means the only type of outdoor furniture available on the market. On the contrary, there are a number of different materials for outdoor furniture, both natural and synthetic, which may be good alternatives to rattan for home-owners less fond of this material. This article goes over a few of the most common.
Fitting your soul. A piece of furniture can fulfil a deep personal yearning or vision. Custom made furniture is a way to address this and need not bust your budget. To match space and function needs, you collaborate with a craftsman who helps you with your specification exactly the size, shape, and features that you need.
It is clear, then, that when it comes to the sustainability of natural rattan garden furniture, home-owners have even less cause for concern than they would with items made from the synthetic variant.
