What Is Wicker Resin Patio Furniture

Starting to look for new patio furniture but still confused about the differences between some of the different kinds of furniture? Have you heard about wicker resin patio furniture but don’t really know what it is?

It is important to know as much as possible about the outdoor furniture you are interested in before making new purchases. Let us explain what makes wicker resin patio furniture different than normal wicker outdoor furniture before you make your next visit to Vancouver Sofa Company.

The Different Kinds Of Wicker Outdoor Furniture

Sometimes people assume that wicker is a material but it is actually a particular form of weaving. So, all kinds of materials are wicker because they are weaved in the wicker style. Regular wicker is often made up of fabrics like rattan or willow branches but has the disadvantage of not standing up well to weather or normal everyday stresses over time.

Wicker resin, also known as “all-weather wicker” on the other hand, is usually made of a synthetic material (most often Polyethylene). The better quality wicker resin furniture will look good both far away and also up close. Quality wicker resin furniture will feel strong and feel like it is made with a sturdy wood weave.

Wicker Resin Is An Easy Clean

One of the most frequently annoying parts of being an outdoor furniture owner is dealing with the normal cleaning requirements.

Luckily, one of the primary benefits of wicker resin patio furniture is that is durable and much easier to clean than most other kinds of furniture. Wicker resin stands up well to be hosed off and does very well being cleaned with a soft abrasive cleaner.

Obviously, this also means that another benefit of this kind of furniture is that it stands up well to rain and almost all other kinds of inclement weather. Given the frequent and occasionally intense rains in Vancouver BC, wicker resin patio furniture can be a perfect fit.

Very Versatile

Wicker Resin comes in all colors and styles. It is ideal for regular seating or can easily be adapted to table seating. Just by purchasing several pieces of wicker outdoor furniture you can go a long way to setting up your dream patio.


Maybe the best feature of wicker resin patio furniture is its cost. Wicker resin is generally much more affordable than many of the other durable furniture options. In these times of trying to get the most bang for the buck, wicker is durable, affordable, and easy to clean
