Deep seating wicker furniture and rattan furniture is built for use with thick, comfortable seat and back cushions. The furniture is usually considered the luxury model as compared to standard wicker and rattan designs that don’t usually require cushions.
Deep seating wicker/rattan furniture is designed for comfort and therefore five or six inch thick seat and back cushions are used. Additional comfort is gained when the furniture designer uses suspension seat straps rather than slats under the cushions for a softer bottom feel. This type of furniture is available in both indoor natural wicker and outdoor resin wicker designs.
Some styles use foam cushions for both the seat and the back. However, today, the most popular deep seating wicker and rattan furniture designs use high density or medium foam seat cushions and a thick pillow style or tufted style back cushions, which are liberally stuffed with pure spun polyester at least six inches thick for the ultimate luxury seating.
Choose your purchase wisely. Quality indoor/outdoor wicker or rattan furniture will last for many years. However, when it comes time for you to replace the cushions, make sure your dealer will handle your request years down the road or that you know where you can obtain replacement cushions in the future. Obtaining replacement cushions for your wicker furniture can be expensive.
