The fantastic thing about rattan garden furniture is its versatility. Lightweight, durable and stylish, rattan furniture can be moved easily, allowing you to place it in the most convenient spot. Although Moda's furniture is weather-proof, you might want to move it indoors during the winter months, if you don't plan on using your garden as much. Outdoor furniture that maximises the summer weather but can be easily transferred inside is all the rage right now, so let's see how you could utilise your rattan furniture inside your home, and why you should.
The balmy summer days of 2018 have put gardens to the forefront of everyone's minds, with people all over the nation flocking outside during this extended period of gorgeous weather. This has led to an upturn in outdoor furniture sales, spurred on by Instagram trends and influencers. Shifting our sofas outside and bringing the botanicals in has helped blur the lines between indoor and outdoor living, and we're all on board for this growing trend.
Your conservatory or orangery is an ideal home for your rattan furniture, helping create a space that feels like your outdoors, even when you're not. Add some vibrant large cushions to dot around the room for extra comfort, and add a lot of plants for a feel-good, natural vibe.
Tough & Durable
Unlike indoor furniture, outdoor furniture can take a beating, and is very easy to clean. If your children are imaginative and enjoy pretending the sofa is a castle, you might be worried about scuffs and spills. However, your rattan sofa won't be ruined if a few crumbs or spillages end up on it. A bit of soap and water will fix any larger accidents.
Mix & Match
Today's trends stem from our need to multitask and our fast-paced lifestyles, and also our desire to get the most out of everything. Our modern mentalities find the use of outdoor furniture indoors practical, trendy and appealing. Get creative - your outdoor dining table could be the perfect spot for an indoor dinner party, and your daybed would flourish in an orangery.
Light as a Feather
Anyone who's tried moving a linen sofa will know it's no mean feat. However, the structure of rattan makes it extremely lightweight. This means you can easily shift it inside if you want to, allowing you to bring in additional seating if you have extra houseguests over. Unexpected guests at the dinner party? No problem!
