The kind of lawn, garden or patio furniture that you see in around someone’s home tells you a lot about them, and not just about income but about their taste, sense of style, as well as their style of living. To me, the most elegant kind of patio furniture is undoubtedly outdoor wicker. Unfortunately, until quite recently this type of furniture was just not a good investment, but newer manufacturing techniques have made outdoor wicker constructed from resin and synthetic materials much more durable and weather resistant than ever before.
To achieve the same sense of casual elegance in the interior of your home, and give it that “house at the beach” atmosphere, seagrass furniture is the ideal choice. The comfort and attractiveness of the smooth tightly woven exterior of the seagrass is what will give the laid back , comfortable, yet stylish feel that you want for any room in your home. Decorating one or several rooms with seagrass furniture is a choice you will never regret.
For some living and dining areas, you should consider rattan wicker furniture. Any sunroom, porch or other inside/outside area is well suited to rattan, which conjures up images of tropical locals and island cruises to exotic ports of call, while being as durable and comfortable as you could wish any furniture to be. Occasional light dusting with a feather duster is all that rattan wicker furniture should ever require to stay attractive, and give your home that wistful hint of the tropics.
