Rattan, a natural plant fiber, is both durable and flexible, which makes it an ideal resource for furniture crafting. While rattan furniture can be used outdoors, it should not be left out from season to season, as it will eventually wear out and break apart.
Using Rattan Outdoors
Rattan, commonly used as the caning material to build the frame of a chair or table, is also used for the woven wicker portions of some furniture. While these fibers are extremely durable in both of these applications, they are essentially dried-out plant matter.
Exposure to constant sunlight, rain or continual changes in temperature or humidity will affect your rattan furniture, even if treated with a sealer containing a UV protectant. If using rattan outdoors, cart it inside during harsh weather and place a cover over it when not in use to prolong its usefulness.
Rattan lasts far longer on a protected porch or indoors than it will left out exposed to the elements for months on end.
