Thanks to Florida’s year-round warm weather, many of our customers come to us looking to create the perfect outdoor space to enjoy. We love recommending Ratana products as part of the quality outdoor furniture we sell in our Venice, FL showroom. Ratana furniture can be seen in homes, restaurants and hotels around the globe. We think that once you look at their beautiful styles, enjoy their comfort and learn more about their durability, you’ll be sold, too.
What is Ratana?
Ratana is an outdoor furniture maker that’s been producing high-quality, affordable pieces since 1980. They’re built to last, and the frames, decks, cushions and fabric all come with a warranty that will make you feel comfortable with your investment.
Ratana is designed to stand up to outdoor weather, including Florida’s intense humidity. To combat this, Ratana is made of “open cell reticulated foam,” which means that the foam has open “pores,” which allow air and water to pass through. It’s also outfitted with an anti-microbial agent, which wards off mold and mildew. The cushions dry out easily, so if you forget to bring them in before a rainstorm, you won’t need to worry.
The open cell reticulated foam has the additional bonus of being a dry and cool, comfortable cushion to sit upon. You can’t enjoy your outdoor furniture if it makes you feel the heat more than the sun does, which is why we love this material.
Finally, the cushions are made from durable, fade-resistant acrylic fabrics, which have been used in everything from awnings and marine applications to outdoor furniture. It’s a performance fabric that is sure to last for years to come.
Plus, maintenance is easy: wipe down any stains with water, a clean rag and a mild soap. If you cover your furniture, make sure that the cover allows for good air circulation. And if there’s a spate of storms headed your way, be sure to store the furniture indoors until the sunshine is back.
What makes Ratana different?
You might wonder how you can tell the difference in quality between Ratana and other outdoor furniture brands. Look under the cushions at the strapping and frames (also called the “deck”). The frame should be durable and light—Ratana uses aluminum, which is non-rusting, lightweight and weather-resistant. Paired with their wicker and resin frames, they’re designed with your comfort in mind, including your comfort in moving these lightweight and versatile pieces in or outdoors.
