iola Modular rattan furniture is not your ordinary rattan sofa. If you read our quality guide you will get to know that all our garden furniture is over engineering. We use heavier gauge commercial frames(1.6mm) coupled with additional bracing. We also use marine grade stainless steel (316 grade) on our Modular feet which is very rare. iola is one of two rattan furniture manufacturers globally to use this material. Of course our cushions are also made from the leading fabric brands and cushion foam available. We believe marine reticulated foam is the best solution for outdoor furniture.
