Wondering how cane differs from rattan and wicker? Cane refers to thin strips of rattan bark. Rattan is a tropical vining plant; its jointed stems produce some of the strongest wood available. Wicker is a generic term for a woven material made of natural (cane, rattan, reed, bamboo) or synthetic fibers.
Here are some ways you can introduce the vintage look of cane into your place.
Should you choose natural or synthetic furniture? While natural cane and rattan furniture is popular for its durability, lightness and natural beauty, it doesn’t do well in extreme heat or in wet or very humid areas, where mold and mildew can cause a problem. Synthetic products can be left out in all weather conditions.
