One of the biggest misconceptions about rattan garden furniture is that it has to look very traditional and almost old-fashioned. Thankfully, things have changed dramatically in the design of these outdoor pieces, and you can now have beautiful pieces that match your more modern home design.
Bold Color Choices
When most people think of rattan garden furniture, they normally think about dull colors: whites and natural hues mostly. But part of the modern design of the furniture has been an update of the color choices available. For example, you could make your outdoor area come to life with a dynamic color combination of black rattan and neon pink cushions. That’s definitely not old fashion.
Most of the rattan garden furniture people are used to seeing looks pretty ordinary. You could probably go back in time and see the same types of pieces in the backyards of your grandparents or their neighbors. However, the more modern options take some risks with the designs of the furniture. Rounded edges are one of the biggest changes. If you like the traditional look, you’ll find lots of choices available but if you want something a little more unique you’ll find that, too.
Some people assume that rattan garden furniture might be a good choice for a chair or two but that it won’t be sufficient if you need furnishings for a large backyard that is used for entertaining or needs to seat a large family. That’s not the case anymore. Many of the sets being sold today are as large as dining room table sets. Tables are available with bases made from the same material. And you can find seating for six people at a table, as well as more traditional types of lounging furniture all made from this versatile material.
