Luxurious Outdoor Rope Furniture
We are well known for our beautiful Grade-A teak offering, but did you know we also design and craft stunning outdoor rope furniture?
The materials that are used to make outdoor furniture are always evolving and becoming more interesting, more impressive and 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 we are proud to now offer a selection of rope furniture, including deep seating, relaxing chairs, dining chairs, and more.
Our rope products are carefully crafted in Italy, Belgium, France, Vietnam, Indonesia, and the Philippines, and almost all of our rope pieces are hand-woven by amazing artisans who have spent years honing their craft. The attention to detail is exquisite, and the end result incredibly durable as our rope strands are made of thermoplastic polyethylene fibres. These synthetic fibres have been engineered specifically for outdoor use, and with proper care and maintenance, they can continue to be weather resistant and look stunning for many years to come.
Rope has been cleverly wrapped around aluminium, steel, and teak frames to make the most interesting pieces, all completely unique in style. Some of the rope is very thick cordage, and it is evident that multiple strands are tightly braided together, and other times it can be thin and appear more elegant. We also offer some crocheted pieces, where the weaving is even more intricate and precise.
So, From rope lounge sets and dining tables through to benches and arm chairs, we've got everything you could want for your garden, patio, balcony and poolside. Read on for some our recommendations if you’re looking to add rope to your al fresco aesthetic.
Rope furniture: The rope outdoor bar stool
Create an outdoor bar set for your patio that is stylish and sophisticated with the Washington Rope Bar Stool, which is suitable for indoor or outdoor use. Made with a solid, powder coated aluminium frame with foot rest, the seat frame is wrapped with outdoor rope in a stunning pattern while the stool is topped with Sunbrella® cushions. The warm taupe colour set against the dark frame is a beautiful combination, and you just know this beauty is comfortable, too. Add a pair of these stools to a teak bar table, or line them up stylishly alongside a granite kitchen bar.

The collection includes a sofa and relaxing chair, so you can configure your outdoor living space in whatever way suits for you and your guests. The attention to detail and the stunning work of the handwoven frame is amazing and begs for a closeup, making for the perfect balance of high-end good looks and extreme relaxation.

Designed with wide arms, deep seating, and a low height, this chair delivers superior comfort in a thoroughly modern style. The chair is supported by a sleek aluminum frame that makes each piece lightweight and easy to move, while the brown-gray hue of the rope that accessorizes the frame is tightly woven in a slanted vertical weave playing to an earthy appeal while maintaining its contemporary shape. The seating comes cushioned with all-weather Sunbrella® cushions, while the back is paired with oversized wrap around pillows that create an unequivocal comfort.
If you’re not so keen on teak, consider wicker. A study in European chic, our Nairobi Woven Dining Armchair is dripping in style and delivers a truly zen-like feel. With its gorgeously wide, low profile, this dining chair is a great choice for any table you may love, indoors or out. Made with Ecolene® polypropylene weaves in the colour black, with black powder-coated steel framing, it is strong and durable plus easy to clean with just a wash of water and mild soap and a rinse.
The rope chaise longue
Apart from the daybed, no piece of furniture says “relaxation” more than a chaise longue. With origins in the sixteenth century, the chaise continues to be associated with court furniture, on which one used to spend long hours reading books or just relaxing, in utmost style! Our Washington Rope Loveseat has a distinctly chaise-like vibe, has all of the qualities that you want when choosing a place to unwind and stretch out, with a generously wide bed and plush cushions with the perfect amount of give. One of the most striking features of the Washington Rope Loveseat are the arms woven beautifully with outdoor rope. This adds a striking design element that will elevate the look of any outdoor space, while the powder-coated aluminium frame is sleek and robust.
Rope just-in-case seating
