OHMM OUTDOOR FURNITUREWHY WOVEN
It’s a good question. Well frankly, when we started in the industry, woven synthetic rattan was the new outdoor furniture material. We fell in love with it. And now, more than 15 years later, we are still convinced of its design versatility, high performance coupled with a luxurious touch as the material for enduring outdoor furniture.
Over the years we have experimented with other materials for our outdoor furniture. Stainless steel is not stainless. It will ‘tea stain’ and rust if not regularly maintained. Powder coated aluminium with mesh have their problems. The aluminium gets hot to touch in the sun and the mesh is not very robust and after some time is prone to sag and mould. Difficult to replace too. Teak, if not treated with a marine varnish will ‘patina’ – go greyish and not look very premium, especially when combined with modern materials. Bottom line, we found they all don’t add up to great looks and performance for outdoor furniture. Not good for clients. Not good for us.
WE FOCUS ON WOVEN
So we leave it to others to make outdoor furniture products from these materials. And we just focus on making world class quality synthetic rattan outdoor furniture in the world with the best outdoor furniture woven craftsmen in the world. Not only does synthetic rattan last with its robust physical properties and low maintenance, it comes in a wide choice of colours and profiles allowing greater design freedom. It’s also repairable too.
After more than fifteen years in the outdoor furniture industry, common sense and client feedback have taught us woven outdoor furniture is enduring above all other materials. So, we focus on producing the best quality woven outdoor furniture and nothing else.
