Conservatory Furniture – Choose Style & Sustainability
The selection of your conservatory furniture can help you to make two statements. You can select beautiful, individualistic furniture, the production of which is contributing to the sustainability of the South East Asian rain forests.
Conservatory Furniture - Materials
Selection of the correct material for your conservatory furniture is critically important. Your conservatory will experience high levels of intense sunshine (yes, even in the UK!). It will also experience relatively high levels of humidity. So, you will need to select conservatory furniture which is resilient to these conditions. This is why cane and Rattan wicker are such popular choices for conservatory furniture.
Conservatory Blinds & Air Conditioning
You should also consider conservatory window blinds to avoid excessive heat and UV ingress. Conservatory air conditioning should also be considered to maintain a pleasant temperature and also to control the humidity in your conservatory.
Rattan Conservatory Furniture – Economically & Environmentally Friendly
In the rainforests of South East Asia where Rattan is produced, it plays a huge part in the local economy and ecology. Timber in this region was often logged prematurely, with grave effects on the ecology of the region. Now the business emphasis is switching from logging timber to harvesting Rattan. In comparison to most tropical wood, Rattan is much faster growing, far easier to harvest and also much easier to transport.
Abaca Conservatory Furniture
Abaca is made from plaited banana tree layer. The layer is cut from the tree and allowed to dry into the sun. It is then twisted into shape. Because of the twisting process, conservatory furniture made from abaca are is stronger. The colour of natural abaca conservatory furniture is also beautiful, requiring no finishing process, which contributes further to its ecological credentials.
Conservatory Furniture Production – Wicker Process
Wicker is a weaving process it is not a material. One of the materials that is commonly used in the wicker weaving process is called Rattan core. Rattan core comes from the rattan interior. A machine is used to cut the inside of the rattan pole into pieces thin enough for the hand weaving process.
