In fact, rather than harm the environment, rattan can be considered to benefit it, insofar as it is used as a replacement for wood wicker in many furniture items. This, in turn, helps preserve forests, as it reduces the need to source wood from trees, preventing deforestation and logging. Furthermore, this plant is often grown in floodplains, thereby facilitating the appearance of animal populations in said areas and making use of soil which would, otherwise, go unused. Finally, rattan harvesting and sourcing helps provide jobs for inhabitants of the areas of the world the material is commonly found at, thus helping maintain a sustainable economy.

Rae Lewis Furniture, 2017-12-17 16:47:52. Many industrial furniture designs today have been greatly influenced by the industrial workplaces of yesterday. Items once produced for factories, hospitals, schools, and commercial units are now being reproduced for our living rooms, dining rooms, kitchens, and even our bedrooms. They also work great in office's and can add a lot of style to commercial settings. Many bars, restaurants, and even rental venues are using an industrial style to draw customers into a bygone era.

It is possible to buy new veneer strips, but they are generally thinner than the old hand-sawn veneers and do not always match in colour. It often pays to go to an auction to look for a broken oddment of furniture that has suitable veneers. To remove a veneer from its backing, first clean off any old polish with white spirit and carefully clean the varnish or wax. Place a damp cloth over the cleaned strip and press with a fairly hot iron. Keep the cloth damp. This melts the Scotch glue holding down the veneer, which can then be peeled off. The same technique is used to raise small areas on the antique piece, but use a soldering iron instead of an iron. Wipe all traces of glue while it is still warm. Dampen the veneer and flatten it between two pieces of wood for about 24 hours before use. Do not let it dry completely, for veneers must be re-laid while still damp and pliable. The replacement veneer should be slightly thicker than the existing one, to allow for sanding. Stick the new strip down with Scotch glue and apply a weight or clamp until the glue has completely set. Wax and polish to match the existing finish.

Marissa Booker Furniture, 2017-12-17 11:06:32. Indeed, one particular question has become more and more common among home-owners in recent years: is rattan furniture eco-friendly? In a day and age where natural resources become more depleted with each passing day, and every effort is valuable in ensuring the environment is not actively damaged, it comes as no surprise that home-owners might want to know whether their favourite type of outdoor furniture is sustainable in this regard.
Sherrie Carpenter Furniture, 2017-12-15 12:48:29. The good news is, as far as naturally sourced materials are concerned, rattan is one of the safest from an environmental standpoint. While the palm tree the material is derived from is geographically limited in location, rattan itself is easily renewable, and the impact its sourcing has in the environment can be considered negligible.
Ronda Bradford Furniture, 2017-12-17 13:30:48. Even still, it is clear that there are a number of different materials for outdoor furniture at home-owners’ disposal, beyond synthetic rattan; and while none of them looks set to topple the hegemony rattan garden furniture has over the outdoor market, they nonetheless constitute valid alternatives for home-owners looking for something different.
