Furniture manufacturers have tried many different materials for a long time and they have decided to use some specific ones for a certain kind of furniture. For example the outdoor furniture is usually made of rattan because this is a natural and very resistant material. Besides, it is weather resistant and this is really important when you have to leave the furniture in the open, either under the really hot sun or the cold wind in winter. So rattan is perfect. Besides, it looks really well, too. This Carlo Lounge Chair from Palecek is illustrative for this.
The solid frames of the lounge chair is made of plantation grown hardwood rattan and the rest is made of thin woven rattan. The nice circles on the sides are also made of pencil rattan which is bent and shaped as circles and then glued to the frame in order to give its design a special feature. The four short legs of the chair are sturdy enough to support the body weight of the person sitting in it and makes it moveable. What is really important for the comfort of this nice chair is the fact that it is available in an improved version with seating and back rest cushions that are soft and nice looking and you can choose from a pretty wide variety of colours and patterns. The manufacturer, Palacek, sells this item for $2,305.00 .
