Recently, the reporter visited the market and found that some wicker conservatory chairs, such as hanging baskets and rocking chairs, are made of rattan and cloth. Many owners believe that they can be placed outdoors, but this is not the case.
In some wicker conservatory chairs stores, the reporter saw some imitation rattan furniture. In fact, they are made of plastic.
According to a clerk, these imitation rattan furniture can last up to seven or eight years when placed outdoors. Compared with real rattan furniture, they can withstand the test of sunshine and wind and rain.
Home decoration designer Liao Haijiang said that most professional outdoor furniture are plastic, stone and iron. Solid wood and rattan furniture can not be placed outdoors at all. Solid wood furniture soaked and cured with preservatives can also be placed outdoors.
"In fact, some leisure furniture can be moved indoors when not in use, which is an alternative." He suggested that it is best to buy foldable style of outdoor furniture for easy storage.
