  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 3, 2023
    The difference between rattan and cane furniture lies in the materials used. Although rattan and cane come from the same type of vine plant, cane undergoes a stripping process that rattan doesn't. As a result, cane is thinner than rattan.

  • 1stDibs ExpertJune 15, 2023
    How long rattan furniture lasts depends on a variety of factors, including where you use and store it, how you care for it and the quality of the manufacturing. Outdoors, rattan furniture usually doesn’t last as long, but indoors, pieces can remain beautiful for many years, especially when wiped clean regularly. Rattan and wicker furniture tend to get a bit of a bad rap, often associated with kitschy 1980s decor or denigrated as something found in the home of a dowdy great aunt. But the long-lasting natural medium, made popular in Great Britain and the United States during the Victorian era, is a master of disguise, able to mingle with a wide range of styles when done the right way. On 1stDibs, shop a range of rattan furniture.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    The first step in determining if an item is vintage bamboo is to first make sure it’s bamboo. Bamboo is inflexible, so if there are curved shapes in the design it is actually rattan, not bamboo. Your next step is to understand the style of the piece of furniture, the brand, and look for telltale signs that it is an authentic piece from that brand. Shop a range of antique and modern bamboo furniture on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 13, 2023
    Yes, bamboo is suitable for some outdoor furniture. However, you should only place bamboo pieces designed for outdoor use outside. Caring for and maintaining bamboo outdoor furniture is important for helping it stand the test of time. Shop a range of antique, new and vintage bamboo furniture on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 13, 2023
    As far as determining whether aluminum or rattan is better for outdoor furniture, one should keep in mind that genuine rattan is not waterproof. If you’re thinking about using rattan outdoor furniture in a patio or garden area and you live in a region that is susceptible to inclement weather, this material will most certainly rot if subjected to prolonged periods of rain or snow. Invest in a durable waterproof cover to protect your rattan outdoor furniture in the rain or, if you are able, store it away. Cast aluminum is a popular choice for outdoor furniture given that it is resistant to rust and it is a durable material. Find a selection of outdoor furniture on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 25, 2024
    How long rattan furniture lasts indoors depends on a few factors. Quality craftsmanship will largely determine the lifespan of a particular piece. However, how frequently the furniture gets used and how well you care for and maintain it will also impact its longevity. Generally, rattan furniture can remain in good condition for at least 10 years. Following the manufacturer's care instructions can further help preserve your piece. On 1stDibs, explore a selection of rattan furniture.
