Marston 6 Seater Rattan Dining Set - Rattan Garden Furniture - Grey

The Best Rattan Furniture for Al Fresco Summer Dinners

When you think about the summer, it brings up feelings of good cheer and sheer pleasure. And nothing says summer like dining al fresco with friends and family; it truly brings out the best in all of us.

Rattan furniture is the best pick if you want to have the true al fresco feel. It’s reminiscent of warm nights in the Mediterranean and fine dining under low and soft lighting, and is a must-have for your garden, patio or backyard.

Rattan furniture has been in existence since the Ancient Egyptian era. Over the years, it’s been a staple piece in warmer climates and later popular during the summer in countries like the UK.

At Laura James, we produce only the best quality Rattan furniture for your home, and our pieces are made deliberately and elegantly with our clientele in mind.

Here’s a handy list of Rattan pieces to make all your al fresco summer dinners dreamy, comfortable, and memorable:

Do you fancy an intimate dinner for two?

Then this sublime two-seater rattan dining set is the right fit for you. The seats have a lovely egg shape, set to comfortably hold your frame when you lean over.

The egg-shaped seats are a space saver and can fit into a nice corner of your  garden; plus, they’re very easy to pack away. The two bistro style seats also come with a glass-topped rattan table, and you have the option of having them in grey, black and mixed brown.

Because this set will be outside most of the year, it is incredibly durable and weather-resistant, thanks to its powder-coated steel frame. The seats’ padded cushions can be stored indoors and wiped down if any dust gets on them.

Being so affordable means you can treat yourself to one here and soak in the summer night’s breeze.

This sleek rattan dining set is a very hip and modern addition to any patio, especially if you have quite some space to play around with. This eight-seater with high back chairs comes with a glass top round table, and the glass is tempered so you can comfortably serve your hot meals.

The set comes in handy for dinners with more people, and the round table makes for effortless flow and movement to and from the dining table. The high back chairs offer excellent back support and comfort; you and your guests can enjoy your dinner from dusk to dawn.

The Kemble eight-seater also comes with a parasol (and its base) to shield you and your dining guests from the heat and the rain. The parasol opens and closes smoothly and can be adjusted depending on the sun’s direction.

Simple, stylish and convenient is what best describes the Cote Garden 4 Seater sofa set. This four-seater rattan set is modern and cosy; it has both back cushions and seat ones, offering all-around support as you enjoy a nice cool drink in the evenings.

The set consists of a two-seater sofa and two armchairs, giving you ample space to kick back and unwind with your loved ones.

In addition, the cantilever parasol is by nature designed to extend horizontally and get support from one end, thus offering 360-degree sun protection. It also has 25 LED lights built in the parasol frame to light up the breezy nights.
