Use cushions or pillows

Another aspect of rattan furniture care that is often overlooked is the use of cushions. Cushions are not fitted purely for the user's comfort, but also to extend the life of the chair. Wallets, cell phones, keys, pens or other objects carried in the pocket can press sharp angles into the woven surface and damage it. Cushions spread the pressure out evenly, and place much less stress on the material. Our outdoor cushions are also shower proof. So, if it does start raining, you don't need to panic, although we do recommend bringing them inside, so they stay protected.

Protect rattan garden furniture legs with rubber feet

The legs of your rattan garden furniture will receive abrasions when when chairs are scraped back and forth. It’s more common to happen when a set is placed on decking or a patio area and can cause the rattan to split at the base of the legs. Over time this can split the legs higher up and eventually weaken the rattan furniture. In order to stop this happening, place rubber feet on each leg, this will absorb impact when dragging rattan furniture across hard surfaces.
