Quality products

Even though we provide winter & summer patio furniture at wholesale prices, all the furniture at our outdoor patio furniture stores is of the highest quality. Not only is it made to our exacting standards, but our patio furniture is stylish and elegant and suits a range of styles.

All our outdoor settings are water resistant and rust proof and is designed to withstand the harsh Australian climate. The frames are made from strengthened aluminium and are powder coated to resist rust, the PE wicker is extremely resistant to weathering and the cushions are highly durable and won’t fade. All of this means that you can leave your winter & summer patio furniture outdoors all year long – uncovered and exposed to the elements, without worrying about moving it under cover in bad weather.

You can order your patio furniture online, but if you prefer to visit one of our outdoor furniture stores in Brisbane or Sydney, before you make your final decision, we will be happy to see you!

Fast turnaround times

We make sure that your winter & summer patio furniture leaves our outdoor furniture stores as quickly as possible, so that you don’t have to wait one more minute than necessary. When you buy online, one of our friendly staff members will contact you to arrange a delivery day that is suitable for you, so you can be at home when your new wicker patio set arrives. They will also call you with an updated arrival time on the delivery day. However, if you prefer, you also have the option of picking up your outdoor furniture at our Brisbane or Sydney outdoor furniture stores.

We also offer a special delivery service where our delivery men unpack your furniture, put it all together (only minor assembly is required for some of the tables), and then remove the packaging when they leave.

Rattan Wicker

Rattan Wicker

What is rattan wicker?

At first glance, many people tend to confuse rattan wicker furniture, thinking that it’s the same thing with just two different names. They can look very similar actually, so it’s quite easy to become confused, however they are very different.

What is rattan?

Rattan is a natural fibre that is harvested from climbing palms in Southeast Asia, Australia and Africa. These climbing palms are like vines with a flexible woody stem that grows over and through other vegetation and have been known to grow upwards for over 100 meters.

Rattan is a material that is used for making baskets and furniture, because it is lightweight, durable and can be used both indoors and outdoors (although it can fade in the sun and needs to be protected from the rain). It can also be stained or painted and can be worked into many different designs.

Unfortunately, rattan is often harvested too early, before the plant is able to regrow, leading to reduced harvests and exploitation of these plants. This is why you now see many synthetic rattans being used to make furniture.

What is wicker?

Wicker on the other hand isn’t a wood, vine or even a material, it is a method of weaving materials together to form furniture or other utensils. You could say that rattan is used to create wicker furniture.

Wicker weaving has been used for aeons and even dates back to the Egyptians with wicker baskets, boxes and chairs found in tombs of Egyptian Kings. Wicker furniture is hand woven and has a distinctive style all of its own that is very popular with many home owners, making it perfect for natural outdoor or indoor settings.

Over time however, because it is often made from rattan material, wicker furniture can fade and needs to be protected from too much rain. This is why synthetic rattan is often used to create wicker furniture, as it is much more durable and long lasting when compared to using natural rattan.

All of our wicker furniture is made using UV resistant high grade rattan, ensuring that your wicker lounge, dining or patio setting stays beautiful forever.

Outdoor Entertaining Ideas for the Spring Season

With the weather warming up, spring is the perfect time to brush up on your outdoor entertaining ideas that you have been thinking about during winter. The birds are singing, the flowers are budding and everything is right with the world!

There is nothing that warms the soul more than spending quality time with friends and loved ones over a home cooked meal or a perfectly cooked BBQ. Aussies love their outdoor entertaining and we love nothing more than sharing great food, great wine and good company.

If you are ready to fire up the BBQ, here our some outdoor entertaining ideas that should give you plenty of inspiration for your next party or get-together.

Make sure the cushions of your outdoor dining chairs are clean and super comfy. If they are still good enough for another year, then give them a spring clean or replace them if they have seen better days.

Don’t worry about matching table wear, because a more bohemian and eclectic look is now quite trendy. This means that you can use all of your favourite table ware and not spend extra money to make it all match perfectly – this is one of our best outdoor entertaining ideas that helps you to save money!

Outdoor Entertaining Ideas

If your dining table is not undercover, then purchasing an outdoor umbrella is a good idea, particularly if you are entertaining during the hottest parts of the day.  You can buy great outdoor umbrellas for a great price from Bunnings.

Simple food is always best when eating outdoors, so go for a picnic style meal with lots of salads, a quiche, cold drinks, and maybe even throw a few steaks on the BBQ for the meat lovers.

Creating an outdoor room is another idea for outdoor entertaining, because rather than just having a table and chairs on the patio, an outdoor room gives a more intimate feeling to your brunch or dinner party which is something everyone appreciates. It’s also great for those 40 degrees days.

If your outdoor furniture is not up to scratch and needs to be replaced, check out our 8 seater square wicker dining patio set for extra outdoor entertaining ideas. With low delivery costs across Australia, you can afford to make everyone envious of your fabulous outdoor settings!

Tips on Selecting the Best Wicker Outdoor Table

Are you in the market for a new wicker outdoor table? When you are searching for the right outdoor table, two of the factors you need to get right are its size and its shape. Get either one of these wrong and you won’t achieve the ambiance you hoped for on your patio.

Deciding on the size of your wicker outdoor table

The size of the available space is going to determine the size of your outdoor table and chairs setting, because a small table in a large area looks just as bad as a large table crammed into a small patio.

So the first thing you need to do is to take stock of the other items, such as a BBQ, water feature, bar or even a fire pit, and measure up the space that is left for your wicker outdoor table. Don’t forget that you will need enough space for people to walk around the table and to pull out chairs as well.

Tips on selecting the right shape for your wicker outdoor table

Wicker tables come in a variety of shapes, including square, rectangle and oblong. Some people have a preference for one shape over another, but it is usually the number of chairs you require that dictates the shape of your wicker outdoor table.

For example, if you prefer a square table, but you need to seat 8 people in a limited space, the table can become too big for the available space. However, the My Wicker Royale 8 Seater Wicker Outdoor Setting has a square table, but it is designed to be sleek and to take up a minimal amount of space.

Wicker Outdoor Table

Another square wicker outdoor table is our Gartemoebe 8 Seater Square Wicker Dining Set that has the same size table, but the chairs are slightly larger. On the other hand, if you prefer an oblong wicker table then our Royale 8 Seater Oblong Wicker Outdoor Dining Set is the perfect solution for brunches and BBQs, whilst our 5 Ways Modular Casual Dining Wicker Setting comes with a rectangular table and offers a range of different configurations.

With all of these options, you won’t have any problems finding the best size and shape wicker outdoor table for your next get-together with friends and family.
