Why we love Outdoor Wicker sofas and Relaxing chairs

A standout feature in envy-inducing Instagram and Pinterest photos and with a design history all its own, wicker furniture has come a long way since the classic sixties and seventies patio set. Now available in much more than just a peacock chair or tropical planter, it can be used just as beautifully when creating modern deep seating collections and chic club chairs like those you’ll find in our showroom, stunning statement pieces designed with rest and relaxation top of mind.

Our Premium Wicker Offering

Logan Wicker outdoor sectional relaxing chair

At Design Warehouse we manufacture our own stunning wicker pieces using the highest quality synthetic outdoor wicker from highly respected brands, Viro® and Ecolene®. We chose these internationally renowned suppliers for their trusted history and their premium offering – quite simply, their product is the best there is, and that is what we pride ourselves on offering our customers. Our woven furniture using Viro® wicker fibres in particular can withstand all kinds of temperature extremes across most climates, and stay looking beautiful all year round.

The aforementioned brands we use for our synthetic outdoor wicker are heavily tested, certified and proven over time in countless countries across the globe, as well as being resistant to all manner of weather events, sunscreen, oils, chlorine (from pools) and many other chemicals and environmental factors.

The wonderful characteristics of these wicker fibres makes them perfect for outdoor exposure, and ongoing maintenance is an absolute breeze.

The Logan Outdoor Wicker Sofa Sectional Centre

Designed without arms, the Logan Outdoor Wicker Sectional Centre belongs to a larger sectional sofa collection that gives you the ultimate freedom to create whatever configuration you want or need. The centre chair can be used on its own, in multiples, in a linear configuration or used in a block formation around a low sitting coffee table. We love the idea of adding a left or right arm configuration from the same collection for a chaise-like vibe, making for the ultimate statement in alfresco style.

The Logan Centre Chair has a luxuriously warm quality that will subtly transform your outdoor living space, the woven synthetic wicker accented beautifully with performance fabric Sunbrella® cushions that are consistent with the dark hue of the weave. This sofa sectional is made with weather friendly materials to give you a piece that will continue to look good for many years with the proper care, and is one of our most popular pieces.

The Vena Wicker Tub Chair

Unaffected and chic, the Vena Wicker Tub Chair is just the piece you’ll love to curl up on and relax in your own time, and your own space.

With a stylish, undulating silhouette that will elevate any outdoor – or indoor - living space, the Vena is a thoroughly modern wicker chair and a true statement in style. In a realistic wooden hue, but made from premium quality Viro® polyurethane wicker specifically chosen due to its ability to withstand outdoor use, the Vena Relaxing Tub Chair looks gorgeous dockside, poolside, in the garden, or on an outdoor patio.

The Weave Wicker and Aluminium Relaxing Chair

Handsome in its sturdiness, the Weave Wicker and Aluminium Relaxing Chair is a joy to behold. The outdoor relaxing chair is a beautiful mix of style and comfort, its gentle, taupe and neutral colour tones making it the perfect piece to slot into any alfresco setting. Both lightweight and stable, this chair uses a large diameter Ecolene® strand, a synthetic wicker that is perfect for outdoor use and very easy to maintain with the proper care. It wraps around a gorgeously formed powder-coated aluminium frame, making the Weave Wicker and Aluminium Relaxing Chair a dream piece where comfort and style are paramount goals.

The Giar Outdoor Wicker Relaxing Chair

Sturdy, low and lovely, the Giar Outdoor Wicker Chair creates a stylish and generous space for you to unwind and enjoy the peace of your surroundings.

Warm and graceful, this low relaxing chair is the perfect height to lean back and relax on, and even better when two are paired with an accent table for holding glasses of pinot gris or cups of coffee just within reach. Being in the same sampulat weave of Viro® wicker as many of our superb deep seating collections, the Giar Outdoor Wicker Chair looks beautiful and is very easy to maintain with the proper care. Complimentary with the Giar Chair is a plush Sunbrella® cushion filled with QuickDry® Foam, so you can happily leave your low relaxing chair outdoors all year round without a worry in the world.

Looking just as great indoors, whether you have a relaxing room in dire need of a new look or a sunroom that needs a modern flourish, we believe this chair will service your needs!
