Luxury Garden Furniture: What Makes True Luxury?

The terms ‘luxury rattan garden furniture’ and ‘luxury garden furniture’ get peddled about rather a lot these days. Unfortunately these are terms which are frequently abused, attached to products which fall short of the high standards that luxury garden furniture should entail.

At iola we think that ‘luxury rattan garden furniture’ should be just that: pure luxury. But what makes luxury garden furniture so luxurious? We believe it is a combination of the very best materials, designs and craftsmanship…

The Very Best Materials

So often internet sites throw around descriptions like: ’luxury rattan garden furniture’, ‘quality’ and ‘premium’, but never quite manage to explain why their products deserve these accolades. Here at iola we can absolutely justify our luxury rattan garden furniture label:

We use the absolute highest quality materials available in the industry - quality materials from Germany, the United Kingdom and the U.S. Every raw material we use is the global leader in its field, including 316 marine grade stainless steel and marine reticulated foam. This is just one small part of how we’ve made our name as creators of true, luxury rattan garden furniture.

Leading Contemporary Design

You will not find luxury garden furniture like ours so ld by anyone else. Take the iola sail bed for example. Our sail bed is the perfect example of a piece of luxury rattan garden furniture: a unique creation which takes 30 days to hand-weave, by the very best weavers in the world.

Superior Manufacturing Techniques

A critical aspect of any product claiming to be luxury garden furniture is its construction. Only the very best weaving techniques result in real luxury rattan garden furniture.
In this respect iola have very few true competitors. Few purported ‘luxury’ rattan garden furniture manufacturers can meet the standards we set when it comes to construction. To find out why please read our 'iola Quality’ section which explains in detail the various weaving techniques we work with.

Our entire luxury rattan garden furniture collection is available in a wide range of colours including white wash, slate and black. If you’re looking for premium, bespoke luxury rattan garden furniture we can also manufacture one-off designs for our special clients.

If you are interested in high quality, luxury rattan garden furniture then please contact us. We cater for the retail, contract and hotel markets, ensuring that luxury means luxury.

Luxury materials, luxury rattan garden furniture - the iola ethos

It is a common cliché that “the clothes maketh the man.” Well, here at iola, we believe that “the materials maketh the luxury rattan garden furniture”! The very best furniture for your garden will always be the sum of its parts and, if its parts aren’t up to scratch, you’ll find that you’re left with a less than beautiful (and less than durable) piece of gardenware.

iola’s luxury rattan garden furniture is different. Many people will tell you that, if you want beauty from garden furniture, you will have to compromise on functionality – and vice versa. As passionate designers, manufacturers and suppliers of top-quality, widely loved luxury rattan garden furniture, we respectfully disagree.

Our stunning, luxury rattan garden furniture incorporates the very best of both worlds: The beauty of cutting edge, contemporary design and the extreme practicality of high-performance, all-weather pieces. We believe that it is this blend of true beauty and true functionality which gives our luxury rattan garden furniture its luxurious name!

The key to this ‘real luxury’ lies with the materials we use. They don’t simply last perfectly and perform magnificently, they also make previously unimagined, modern designs possible. We use German-engineered Rehau Stressflex ™ polymer fibres in all of our luxury rattan furniture designs. This allows our master weavers in Cebu to create garden furniture which looks like no other available on the market. It is not just flexible, it is also extremely strong, extremely durable and incredibly weather resistant.

Meanwhile, our fabrics are made of the very best, waterproof Sunbrella fabric, whilst cushions and metal fixtures are made from marine grade foam and stainless steel. Not only do these materials look beautiful – they stay looking beautiful.

iola furniture means luxury in the purest sense. If you are a discerning buyer and are looking for a very high quality rattan furniture product whilst still being affordable then please make sure you contact us to view our furniture in store before making that buying decision.

Bespoke Rattan Garden Furniture

Ever notice how 99% of all internet based rattan furniture dealers sell the same furniture? It is a fact that 75% of all of the UK rattan furniture comes from 10 factories in China. These factories use identical materials, the weaving staff do the rounds and they copy each other to the point that the industry is commoditised at the low end of the market. 

 

It is not hype or puffery when we say that iola are the ONLY rattan furniture dealer who can create true bespoke rattan furniture. One off iterations from our collection. We get asked regularly to copy something a customer has seen in a book or at a hotel. We politely decline. All of our work is original. The point we are trying to make is that all good quality manufacturers focus on particular themes and colourways and it is very difficult to obtain a small number of units to suit a retail customer (volume is the norm). But at iola we realised that our customers are as individual as our furniture and we do our best to accommodate.

Take a dining table. Ever seen a 12 seater rattan dining table? We mean a proper 12 seater that allows generous space between the chairs as opposed to something similar to a sardine can. Our 12 seater tables are 3M long! One piece and in any one of our colour ways. Bronze, White Wash etc. The reason we can do this is that we own our factory. No other UK supplier is in this position. We control what we make and can alter dimensions to suit our customers needs.

 

iola is a high end quality garden furniture dealer who only uses the very best raw materials in the industry. iola means luxury rattan furniture that lasts
