Wood is the material of choice in making this furniture, because that was the era of wood. Other materials were virtually unthinkable. They do have futuristic designs for the era they are made, but you must consider that those designs will still be outdated in today's times.
Think about your own skin. Would you wash your face with a strong household cleaner? Certainly it would clean your face, however the drying and chaffing effect it has on your skin is not desirable, particularly with repeated use. The same is true for upholstery leather. The fact is that upholstery leather is acidic. It has a pH of 4.5 - 5. Harsh cleaners are highly alkaline. Consequently a chemical reaction occurs in the leather that breaks down its fibrous structure. Therefore it's important to use leather cleaners that are chemically engineered (pH balanced) specifically for upholstery leather.
Synthetic rattan outdoor furniture is a perfect example of this, as it effectively eliminates most of the downsides to owning furniture made of this material while retaining its visual appeal. Namely, synthetic rattan does not fray, and therefore requires a significantly lower amount of maintenance that the natural product. Similarly, natural rattan is notoriously vulnerable to inclement weather conditions, while its synthetic counterpart is usually treated so as to be weather-resistant. What this means, in practical terms, is that synthetic rattan outdoor furniture can be left outside year-round if necessary, and will not be significantly damaged by rain or snow; again, this is in sharp contrast to its natural counterpart, which must be stored in a cool, dry place during the colder months of the year. This, in turn, makes this type of material popular among home and garden owners who do not wish to spend a great deal of time maintaining and caring for their furniture; as such, it is not uncommon to see synthetic rattan outdoor furniture sets in western back yards and patios, in lieu of the real thing.
It is a general misconception that modern furniture is very expensive. However, if you undertake sufficient research and consider some important factors, you can get them at very inexpensive prices. Furniture styles have certainly evolved over time, having gone through several changes. The patterns and outlook are more advanced and trendy. Due to their style and convenience, they are in a high demand, which is one of the reasons for high prices.
