Wicker can take many forms. Wicker itself is not a material, instead, wicker is a term given to a class of woven materials of either synthetic or natural fibers. Some common materials used in wicker include rattan, bamboo, synthetic vinyl and sea grass.
One of the most versatile and rugged forms of outdoor furniture. Wicker chairs are timeless in elegance, able to withstand the elements and can pass as modern or rustic. Our weather wicker sets are made of woven materials over a sturdy aluminum frame.
The perfect complement to any outdoor dining set, wicker sofas are available in synthetic or natural fibers. Sofas and sectionals come with comfortable cushions and weather-resistant protective covers.
|The entire process begins with broomhandle-sized poles, which are steamed and bent into the form needed for the furniture. As the pole is cooled, the shape is retained and the wicker materials are woven around the frame. Frames can also receive a finish during production, usually dusted to avoid the effects of being exposed to the elements. Weaving the wicker materials is a process typically done by hand, although some manufacturers do use a machine to weave, which means that it can take anywhere from 1 to 4 days to finish a project. In addition, wicker pieces may receive additional sanding for smoothness, a lacquer or stained finish, or deburring to remove unwanted materials and ensure a smoother finish.
|Frames are constructed of aluminum, which does not rust. You can leave your wicker out in the rain or snow with no major damage. To clean your wicker, run a dust rag over the materials. Dust can accumulate if you fail to clean, which leaves furniture looking decrepit, but no peeling should occur with proper care. Wicker does not dry out or splinter, but linseed oil will restore wicker to its natural glory. All materials can be re-stained or restored if the color fades.
Question #1: What are the primary differences between wicker and rattan?
Answer: The word “wicker” is like a catch-all term that encompasses many woven products like sofas and end tables. Wicker furniture is made from a variety of materials, including: rattan, seagrass, peel, or plastic. Synthetic, or resin wicker, is another viable option that has been used in recent years. Rattan vines can be up to 500 feet in length, and 2-2.5 feet in diameter. The pole is often used to form the basis of the frame, before it is cut into smaller strands and woven into the furniture.
Question #2: Which is stronger: Wicker or Rattan Furniture?
Answer: Both materials are about equal in strength and weight support, what you really want to test for is the frame. If the frame is solid and does not sway, you’ll find it at Wicker Paradise.
Question #3: How well does wicker hold up outside?
Answer: Vintage wicker might need to be stored over night, but these pieces can be several decades old. The elements typically don’t effect new wicker pieces as easily, so you don’t get the kind of drying or cracking that might occur with older sets. However, weather can rot the frame if the furniture is not designed well. Heavy plastics or wood frames are especially susceptible to this kind of a beating, with warping being a particularly big problem for wood frames. Aluminum is our frame of choice because it doesn’t rust, and it can be treated for even greater weather resistance. Aluminum frames also make furniture light-weight and easy to rearrange.
Water proofing can help prolong the life of your piece, but isn’t generally necessary as most furniture receives a finish that protects it from the elements. You may need to re-stain your furniture over time, especially if left out in the sun, but you won’t typically find pieces falling apart from outdoor use.
Question #4: What kind of assembly is required?
Answer: Wicker Paradise ships all of its furniture direct to you and fully assembled. Remove the piece from the box, place it and enjoy.

Wicker Paradise Review
My wife and I want to extend an unsolicited compliment to all of the folks at Wicker Paradise. We were very reluctant to order wicker
online. After all, one would normally sit on the cushions prior to buying. After much debate and a couple of phone calls to your customer service department with questions, we ordered the Lanai wicker collection
for our new sunroom. The delivery was timely, the furniture was well packed. not a single scratch. We could not be happier with our selection of your company and the wicker furniture
we purchased. Thank you for being a company that people can trust.

The Magic Of Wicker
Wicker will always be a timeless classic, most frequently known for intricate weaving patterns in furniture designs. Since wicker by definition is anything that is woven, the possibilities of style increases with the mix of natural and synthetic materials, variations of color and texture used in wicker production.Wicker decor
can be broken down into two types. The splash of wicker to complete a look or a full collection to give your area the commanding presence you have always wanted.
The splash of wicker effect finishes off an existing look with let's say a stylish wicker chair
in the perfect fabric to give you a visual "pop" needed in the arrangement.
If your template is empty, going with a full set of a wicker sofa
, loveseat, rocker, and wicker tables with a coordinating rug and accessories finishes the room in style.
