If you are a major outdoor furniture lover, then you've probably already considered some form of rattan furniture for your home or outdoor living area.
If not, then you by all means should. Most experts agree that rattan furniture is some of the highest quality stuff that you will find on the market today. While you cannot be guaranteed that every product you ever buy will perform to the max, you can rest easy that - whether synthetic or Indonesian - will do much better than other forms of product that are out there on the market today. However, which is the best when it comes to actual performance? The answers may surprise you. Indonesian Rattan's durabilityWhile plastics and other materials used in the rattan furniture making process are very dependable nowadays, and improving all the time, they do not have the pedigree that Indonesian furniture brings to the table. Indonesian rattan is tested and confirmed as being able to stand up to anything that Mother Nature has to throw at it. After all, in raw material form, Indonesian rattan is made to withstand some pretty extreme scenarios each year. For companies that focus on quality, Indonesian rattan is unsurpassed as an all weather furniture item that can conceivably last for decades with minimal upkeep. Not all synthetic rattan is made in the same light. Indonesian Rattan's price pointsWhen you look in to the cost of these two furniture types, you may be drawn in more by synthetic as it lends itself to mass production and so raw materials can be more easily sourced. But be careful when choosing synthetic furniture because there is bigger room for error in the production process. Commitment to quality is something that you will find more in the Indonesian ranks than in any other type of manufacturing facility in the world. That's not to say that it is missing in the annals of synthetic furniture manufacturing, but it is to say "be careful" when choosing the type of synthetic if selecting it over basic natural furniture. Indonesian customer satisfaction levelsThe amount of satisfied customers for both are always on the rise, but only recently have customers started to show a more favorable eye towards synthetic rattan furniture, and that's because production standards and materials have improved with technology. The natural form of this product, however, has remained consistently a favorite in the marketplace for a very long time, and so there is no reduction in quality, no unwanted surprises, to worry about. While you can certainly get a quality piece of furniture whichever route you go, you'll want to make sure that you give Indonesian rattan a look. Value quality, and you won't be disappointed either way.
