Outdoor FurnitureWhat is synthetic rattan?
Synthetic Rattan is what our garden furniture is made from. Its contemporary design reflects our innovative vision to create products that are ahead of the trends. The weave is made using synthetic rattan to ensure that the furniture is all weather proof, as natural rattan would rot outdoors. This gives customers the luxury of having the best of both worlds.Do the Rio chairs come with cushions?
