Why You Need To Consider 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.
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. So, from rope bar stools and dining chairs 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.
The Rope 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 or concrete bar table, or line them up stylishly alongside a granite kitchen bar. Just superb.
The Rope Club Chair
A stunning example of a sturdy and extremely comfortable relaxing chair, the Mary Outdoor Low Club Chair wraps you in its arms from the moment you sit down. A mix of chic design and long lasting materials, the Mary Outdoor Low Club Chair is made from a clever and stylish mix of powder-coated aluminium and all-weather rope, and comes topped with plush, all-weather cushions that will never lose their deep colour and wonderfully plump shape.
With plenty of room to sit back and relax with ease, this piece looks stunning by itself or as a pair, or alongside the matching Mary Outdoor Low Sofa for a cosy outdoor setting that guests will love. Pop one of our much-loved accent tables alongside for your book, coffee or glass of wine, and comfortably settle in for the long haul.
The Rope Dining Chair
Your outdoor dining space can be just as stylish, chic and luxurious as your indoor dining room, and the Studio Cyprus Rope Dining Chair can most definitely help with that.
These dining chairs sport very distinguished good looks, and are impeccably constructed from proven outdoor materials such as engineered rope, aluminium, and Sunbrella® fabric. The beautifully woven rope seat, back and arms deserves a closer inspection, the weave is tight and absolute perfection. This chair pairs beautifully with many of our dining tables, including our raw concrete, Grade-A teak and aluminium pieces.
Natalie Outdoor Relaxing Lounge Chair
With a thick, plush Sunbrella cushion and bucket-style seat, the Natalie Outdoor Relaxing Lounge Chair is designed with rest and relaxation in mind. Suited for both indoor and outdoor living and sporting a gloriously rounded silhouette, the Natalie Outdoor Relaxing Lounge Chair can live outside year round thanks to an all-weather construction that includes Ecolene® Outdoor Weave, which looks and feels like natural rattan.
The synthetic weave has high tensile strength, so it won’t crack or splinter and requires very little maintenance during its lifetime – just a splash of water will keep it clean. In addition, its powder-coated aluminium frame and powder-coated steel legs are designed to resist corrosion, and make for an incredibly lightweight piece that is ready to be pulled in whenever its needed.
The Rope Love Seat
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.
