You might have seen one on those nursing homes or maybe in your friend’s living room and thought “I want to have one too!” There’s nothing ridiculous about the idea, purchasing wicker rocking chairs is but a sensible thought. Why not? These rocking chairs can be your refuge on those cold rainy nights when you wanted to bring back good memories to keep you warm. Or it could be your sanctuary on those balmy hot days when you wanted to ease all your stress away. Or you can simply rock yourself to sleep if you just need a good rest.
But there are things you should consider before buying one. First, a wicker, which may come from rattan or bamboo, though durable and flexible, is a delicate material. Thus, proper care and handling is a must. When you order one, go for the assembled form, this takes away the possibility of exposing the parts to the possibility of splintering and fractures. Another thing is make sure to choose a wicker with an aluminium border or frame. Natural wicker can only manage 90 kilograms of weight but if it is framed with aluminium, it can stand additional load.
You should also consider the area where you will put your wicker chair. If you want to use it outdoors, make sure you purchase a finished one. You may also consider buying those that are made of synthetic materials since they have the “feel” of belonging to an outdoor setting. Its durable material which is made from vinyl can withstand any weather, and thus perfect for outdoor use. If you want to use it indoors though, go for the exceptional classic look and feel of a natural wicker. With its handcrafted rattan weaves and whirls, it gives you the antique mood – as if you are being transported to an older generation.
After taking all the above mentioned factors into consideration, you are now ready to purchase your very own wicker rocking chair. Make sure you consider everything before the purchase and you can never go wrong. You’ll end up with the finest rocking chair that suits your comfort and style.
