◇ Rattan Direct: Furniture Review ◇
Wicker furniture has always been a popular choice for gardens, sunrooms and conservatories, and that's fine. But, I say, let's break tradition! Wicker furniture can make the perfect addition to any room in your home! Bathrooms, kitchens, dining rooms and hallways alike. The texture of the rattan materials can soften up any space and create a warm and cosy atmosphere.
It is easy to see why Wicker is a popular choice for these spaces though. It is hardwearing and durable, waterproof, easy to clean, and it looks fantastic. The wicker style is flexible and versatile, in the sense it looks perfectly placed in homes with the traditional home decor and those with a more contemporary style too.
Rattan Direct offer a huge range of wicker furniture for your conservatory and your garden! Sofa's, tables, and storage possibilities too. I chose to incorporate my rattan storage into my home decor and it now has pride of place in my hallway. Extremely practical, but stylish too. After the many “oohs,” and “aahs” from visitors, I know I made the right choice.
◇ First Impressions ◇
I have the 5 Drawer Abaca Rattan Storage Rack, (seen in the picture.) The item was far bigger than I expected it to be and it exceeded all expectations I had with regards to size, quality and appearance. The item was extremely well packaged, which I appreciated. There was no chance of it being damaged in transit. The item arrived in one piece so all I had to do was open the box and decide where I wanted it.
◇ Further Information ◇
This item is sold as a versatile conservatory storage that can be used in any room. It stands 126 cm in height, 52 cm in wide and is 34 cm deep. Hand-woven abaca over a very sturdy wooden frame with spacious pull-out baskets.
The baskets themselves are so chunky. They look aesthetically very nice, but they are fantastic quality too. The whole piece is finished to a high standard actually. It is hand-made by weaving natural rattan around a solid hardwood mahogany wooden frame with solid hardwood legs.
I genuinely love this item of furniture. I would describe myself an eclectic mix of traditional, olde-worlde and bohemian style so it really does suit me perfectly. The mahogany frame is warm and inviting and the overall colouring and finish are classic and neutral. So, it would fit well with any design or style you might have chosen.
The furniture frame exceeds the Britsh standards for heavy domestic use and the item comes with a 5-year structural warranty. This piece really will stand the test of time and I just know it is going to improve as it ages.
