The Varying Styles & Features
I will show you how to differentiate what looks like the best patio furniture versus what is actually the most reliable, durable, and high value furniture in the market.

Synthetic High Density Polyethylene Wicker Versus Low-Grade Cheap PVC
It is very common for people to misinterpret Synthetic Resin Wicker Furniture with “Rattan”. Synthetic wicker outdoor patio furniture is lhightweight, extremely durable, and requires little to no maintenance.
Synthetic High Density Polyethylene is one of the best materials for outside furniture.
The misinterpretation of both wickers lead many people online to purchase cheap PVC wicker. PVC synthetics will brittle, unravel, and crack within a very short time of it being exposed to sunlight, rain, and humidity.
High Density Polyethylene is a much higher quality material that does not unravel or degrade under all weather conditions.
If you have ever experienced or know someone who has had their wicker crack and brittle it is because they have purchased low-quality PVC plastic wicker.
Last, almost all synthetic wicker furniture is built around aluminum frames which contribute to its longevity. In addition to this, when shopping always look for patio furniture with a commercial grade aluminum frame.
