The practice of using woven rope to create furniture is a tradition that goes back to ancient times in Egypt. In those early days, primitive Egyptians used woven rope to make line-rope chair seats. The material fell out of favour for thousands of years until its recent resurgence as a primary material in various types of furniture.Read more
People appreciate woven rope furniture for its strength as well as the versatility that allows for a wide range of furniture styles and functions.
Furniture designers favour rope because it allows them the opportunity for maximum creativity by using only a single type of material. In addition to being decorative, designers can choose one of several ways to tie the rope together such as braiding, knotting, weaving, or warping. It’s also simple to weave rope in with other materials for an even more elegant look.
Woven rope furniture is especially popular because of its strength. The individual pieces of rope in woven rope come together in a twist or braid to make a larger and more functional piece.
Furniture made from woven rope can be an especially good choice for people looking for items they can leave outside all year long. That is because woven rope is highly resistant to all types of weather including heavy winds and rain.
Another benefit of woven rope furniture in terms of weather is that it doesn’t fade easily when exposed to the sun. The material contains polypropylene that provides natural protection against sun fading along with added strength.
Woven rope gives a much softer appearance than some other types of furniture material like steel or aluminium.
