  • The History of Garden Furniture

    Everything we see, touch or learn about has some kind of a history to it. Coffee cups have a history, wood has a history and garden furniture has a history. Here at Moda Furnishings, we are interested in the history of our range of garden furniture, which why we’ve decided to dedicate this blog to just that…

    Greek Era

    The garden itself was created shortly after the Claudian Invasion of 43CE and introduced designs like hedges and fences being combined with orchards. It is said that garden furniture can be traced back to the Roman and Greek eras where people we known to sit upon stone benches in these new outdoor gardens. In fact, evidence of these were found in Pompeii and are thought to be the oldest surviving examples.

    Medieval Era

    During this time gardening was not a major concern however some progress in the history of garden furniture still took place and the turf bench became a recognisable aspect of a medieval garden. They rose in likeability through the art they had featured on them in the 15th century.

    Elizabethan Era

    The introduction of the 17th century saw landscaping, gardening and design become more common in Europe and it was thought that a well-constructed garden controlled natures wrath. With urban spaces growing, the demand for seating that would remain day and night did too which led to the creation of the Windsor chair. Civil areas like parks in the 19th century added to this demand and eventually the ‘park bench’ that we know of today emerged.

    21st Century

    With modern life the concept of outdoor furniture has bloomed in ways the Greek could’ve only imagined and thanks to electricity allowing for more outdoor events to take place, the need for garden furniture has become much more popular. Plus, the range of colours, styles and materials that have developed means that we are spoilt for choice when it comes to garden furniture.

    Learning all about something is always exciting and it’s odd to find out how much happened in the past to provide us with the things we have today.

  • Let’s Talk About Rattan

    Contrary to belief, rattan can actually be used in two forms; natural and man-made. In terms of natural rattan, there are around 600 difference species of the palms which are native to certain regions of Africa and Asia. It can be distinguished by its slender stems that tend to be 2-5cm in diameter- however it is not a tree but more of a vine. In this blog, the team here at Moda Furnishings are going to talk about all things rattan related…

    If you were to glance at it, rattan is a very similar to bamboo however unlike a bamboo shoot, it is not hollow from the inside and a rattan stem needs additional support in order to stand tall. It is thought that around 75% of rattan plants grow in Indonesia and the majority is grown in what are called secondary forests, which are where most of the trees are young in age and the forest floor light levels are higher. Rattan is a plant that climbs and can even grow to 100 metres in length.

    One of the main attractions of rattan is its versatility which means that it can be easily moulded into different looks. It is a lightweight material which looks great indoors and outdoors and is widely known for its use in the furniture industry.
