We’ve collected 41 fabulous outdoor wicker furniture design ideas for your patio and deck. Some of the styles available this season are just stunning. With the advent of the high-end resin and synthetic wicker furniture, the whole game has changed. Now, there seems to be no design limit (or price limit). But we’ve never had it better. It’s all water proof so you don’t have to be carting it in and out or covering it when it rains. Although there still is something to be said for vintage outdoor wicker furniture, made from the real thing (cane, reeds, rattan, willow and more) – it will take a lot more maintenance.
For the most part, we’re going to concentrate on today’s outdoor wicker furniture, the new materials. Design-led pieces and sets, like this fabulous casual seating area from FrontGate (they have some great design ideas, by the way). Isn’t this one of the nicest outdoor spaces you’ve ever seen?
One more quick note before we start on our 41 examples. Wicker and Rattan are two different things – like apples and oranges. The terms are often are mistakenly used interchangeably. Rattan is a material used to make the furniture, where wicker is a technique – an ancient one, as a matter of fact. It involves weaving natural materials such as bamboo, willow, rush or rattan. But in most cases today, as noted earlier, we’re buying synthetic outdoor wicker furniture, made from plant materials. It’s a hard molded product that withstands the environment year after year. The new materials are much easier to care for and hold up much longer. But the choice, as always, is yours.
