Learn More About Outdoor Wicker Sofas
The best way to create a comfortable outdoor lounging arrangement is to start with a patio sofa. Outdoor sofas bring all the comfort and elegance of an indoor living room to the open air, and can be a great furniture piece to ground an aesthetic. Outdoor wicker sofas are sofas and sectional sofas with frames that are crafted primarily from woven wicker. These sofas include frames manufactured using synthetic wicker weave and natural weave, and they are designed to seat three or more people. Wicker is a classic outdoor material, that recalls handcrafted furniture-making techniques that are over a century old. Natural wicker sofas are made from strong organic fibers that are formed together and woven around a sturdy frame, typically crafted from aluminum or a similar metal. Synthetic outdoor wicker sofas are created using a similar process but with manufactured fibers. These sofas are susceptible to everyday wear and tear and should be cleaned regularly and covered when not in use.
Decorating with Outdoor Wicker Sofas
Both synthetic and natural wicker is available in a range of colors. The most popular traditional wicker colors are natural tones such as tan, beige, and brown. Modern wicker sofas can feature bright, vividly colored wicker and cushions. Sofas made with wicker feature weaves of varying thicknesses and patterns. The color, thickness, and pattern of the wicker weave will play a determining role in the final appearance of the sofa. Since outdoor wicker sofas are simply wicker wrapped around a metal frame, almost any frame silhouette and style can be achieved. PatioLiving offers modern, traditional, and transitional wicker sofas from many leading brands. These pieces coordinate effortlessly with wicker lounge chairs, loveseats, ottomans, and more. For a more contemporary, forward-thinking look, these pieces can also be styled with furniture crafted from teak, aluminum, or another outdoor material. Most sofas manufactured with wicker frames include plush cushions that are available in a variety of durable fabric patterns and colors. You can make any sofa more cozy with the addition of pillows or outdoor blankets.
