The materials that are used to make outdoor furniture are always evolving and becoming much more exciting, impressive, and most importantly more durable. The technology has advanced and this allows new innovative designs and styles to emerge. Over the last few seasons, rope has become the go-to material for fresh new designs and Design Warehouse is leading the way.
We have carefully selected and curated a number of pieces that are made with woven, braided, crocheted, and knitted rope. The success of these products has allowed us to expand the number of styles that we can offer greatly. Our rope products are carefully crafted in Italy, Belgium, France, Vietnam, Indonesia, and the Philippines.
Almost all of the rope pieces are hand-woven, or knotted like Macramé, by talented and dedicated craftsmen. The attention to detail is exquisite. The rope strands are made of thermoplastic polypropylene fibers. These synthetic fibers have been engineered specifically for outdoor use, and with proper care and maintenance, they can continue to be weather resistant and look stunning.
Rope is such an exciting material because the possibilities for the number of different looks are endless. The thickness of the strands, the colors, the texture, and the patterns are all considered for each design. Rope can be woven or braided around aluminum, steel, and teak frames to make the most interesting pieces. When the woven cord is used for the seat, many times, you don’t need to add a cushion because the rope strength and weave have the right amount of give to be very comfortable and you don’t have to hide the stunning rope designs under a cushion.
