Outdoor Wicker

Outdoor Wicker

All weather outdoor wicker is a great option for screened in porches, sunrooms and even uncovered areas. It brings an indoor look to your outdoor area. With major advancements in technology, outdoor wicker has become more and more durable and at the same time better looking with a more realistic feel. There are several types of outdoor wicker. Some companies use natural rattan and add a protective coating to it. This is good for sunrooms, but we would not recommend using it outside. Over time the protective coating will fade, leaving the rattan vulnerable. Also, loom wicker is often used in outdoor covered areas. It will hold up well for a while, but may eventually wear and require some maintenance. Here at The Fire House, we recommend resin outdoor wicker. The brands we carry use a high density resin with the color throughout the strand, giving you an extremely durable product that can be used 100 percent outside, even in uncovered areas. It will not rot. It will not fade. It will last you for many, many years of enjoyment. Also, we use only the highest quality brands of outdoor fabrics such as Sunbrella and Outdura. Both of these are made in the U.S.A. Stop by one of our showrooms to see why our resin wicker will outlast our competitions. Durable, beautiful and comfortable, we only carry products that will last for decades.
