ALL WEATHER FURNITURE RESISTANT?

All Weather Furniture Resistance?
Wicker furniture is naturally weather resistant, but it is not fully weather proof so you need to take precautions to prevent weather damage. Do not leave wicker furniture in direct sunlight for long periods of time, and avoid placing it in locations where it will be subject to excessive wind or rain.

In the off-season, the pads and cushions from your wicker furniture should be stored inside your home or the garage. If space allows, move the furniture itself inside, too. When this is not possible, opt instead for covering the furniture with a tarp or other protective cover and put it in a spot outside where it is sheltered somewhat from the worst of winter weather.

WHEN DID WICKER FURNITURE BECOME POPULAR?

When did wicker furniture become popular?
wicker furniture first became popular in England and America during the 17th and 18th centuries. Many of the designs were similar to the simple and elegant lines of Victorian-era furniture, but without the tremendous expense and bulk of traditional wood furniture.

As leisure time and vacation homes expanded in the 20th century, wicker once again surged in popularity as a sturdy but lightweight material for casual indoor furniture and outdoor patio furniture. Today it can be found in all price ranges and wide range of styles to suit any taste and d├ęcor.
