You can enjoy the beauty of wicker along with the long-lasting benefits of UV-resistant resins
Faux wicker is beautiful and long-lasting and suitable for both outdoors or inside. Because it is made of resin, it can be left outdoors all year long. Never a need to repaint and no splintering or mildew to contend with. Cleaning is much easier as well; just hose it off. It is sometimes referred to as "all-weather wicker," but by any name, it's guaranteed to last a very long time.
With the advent of this great new material, comes a host of furniture and decor selections. You can start small with a small entertaining table with pull out ottoman-styled stools. From there, you may wish to add comfortable chairs or a bench that doubles as a storage chest. Two-person gliders and swings will let you reminisce about the "good old days."
You can also set up an outdoor entertainment center with a sturdy television stand complete with shelves for a DVD player and accessories. You'll find much more: from trash containers to ceiling fans to lamps and pet beds. One of our favorites is the outdoor tea or cocktail cart. Planters are another select choice, particularly in natural. There is simply no limit to the ways these faux pieces can be used to decorate.
Most faux wicker is supported by a strong internal structure made of wood. Weather-resistant cushions can be purchased separately through most suppliers. Be sure to visit your local garden or outdoor center or visit the many online retailers.
Color options include: white, green, and natural.
Faux wicker is a
great way to bring tradition back without the hassle.
