Are you thinking of replacing furnishing in your living room? If so, just stop for a moment and think about your dream design. Your key furniture pieces will make all the difference in the world. For example, the center furniture piece in the living room is your sofa set. That’s the first piece of furniture that your guests see (and sit in) when they arrive. Therefore, it’s only right that you take more time to choose this important piece of furnishing.
You will soon realize that there are so many types of sofa sets to choose from – leather sofa, fabric based sofa, wooden sofa furniture, and so on. If you want something really unique and different, then you may wish to consider rattan sofa sets. Rattan cane, by nature, is a very tough and durable material. Because the materials is abundantly available in countries like Indonesia, they are often priced at more affordable pricing.
Being affordable doesn’t mean that the quality is compromised. On the contrary, many homeowners have found rattan furniture to be elegant looking, and provides comfort at the same time.
In general, there are three types of rattan furnishing that you can place in the living room.
Type 1: A small set of 2 chairs and 1 coffee table.
This set is ideal for small corners. You can place it in a quiet corner. When more guests arrive than expected, this furniture set comes in extremely useful. Take a look at the Trento Set or the Katmandu set. Both are designed different, and each set consists of 2 rattan chairs, and 1 coffee table.
Type 2: Standalone rattan chair.
If you have a reading corner in the living room, you can consider placing a large (but extremely cozy) chair in the corner. The New Delhi Oval is just one example. It is a large oval shaped chair, and you can immediately see yourself curling up in the chair with a good book.
Type 3: Complete sofa sets.
And of course, you have complete sofa sets to choose from. Each set can be a 4 seater or a 5 seater. It comes with a coffee table and/or a side table. There are plenty of designs to choose from – from more traditional designs to the modern L-shape designs.
All the three types of furniture come in natural colors. The beige (or yellowish) colors blend well with almost any existing color. Sometimes, you may come across Kooboo grey furnishing. This is a color that has been rising in popularity as its easy to match grey with existing living room designs.
Maintenance wise, rattan furnishing always require very little attention. To keep the furniture clean, simply remove the cushions and air them in the sunlight. Beat the cushions or use a damp cloth to clean lightly to remove any dirt and grime that may have collected over the weeks.
The frame itself can be cleaned with a wet cloth and a brush. Cut the brush in half so that the bristles are hardened. Then use the brush to clean between the gaps of the rattan furniture.
