Rattan Buying Guide


Rattan can be a fantastic way to up style your garden and create a social space to relax on a sunny afternoon, entertain guests, or even dine with the whole family. At Leader Stores, we’ve worked with garden furniture specialists Richmond Garden to bring you a high quality selection of rattan furniture sets. There are a few different sets to choose from, all suitable for a variety of gardens and uses - so let’s take a look through how you should go about buying your rattan furniture this year!


The most important thing to consider when choosing a garden furniture set is the room you have available - do you need your furniture set to be compact or can it spread out across the decking or grass.

For smaller gardens, cube sets are a great way to create a seating area in small gardens. Our cube sets are available in either 4 seater or 6 seater options, but can expand to seat 8
or 12 people with the use of the footstools included in the set. Cube sets are perfect for keeping in smaller spaces as they compact down to the size of the table - footstools fit snugly underneath the chairs, which can be neatly tucked
away under the table.

Larger gardens can benefit from a 6 seater cube set, or even a  sofa set  designed to spread across the patio, decking or lawn for a more relaxed seating environment with a less formal arrangement.
Next, you should consider what you’re planning on using your rattan furniture for. There are many different uses for garden furniture depending on whether you’re planning on using it every day or for special occasions.

Garden Dining For The Family

Perhaps you’re thinking about having regular meals in your garden with the family? Our dining sets  are perfect for bringing the family dining experience outdoors.

Social Dining Spaces

Are you thinking about impressing your dinner guests with an outdoor dining experience in your garden? Our 6 seater dining sets seat up to 12 guests thanks to the footstools stored underneath. All of our rattan furniture sets include seat pad cushions and extra deep back cushions, and enough cushions for each of the footstools too, so everyone sat around your table will be comfortable!

Make the Most of a Sunny Afternoon

For those simply looking for a place to relax on a sunny afternoon, consider a sofa set that’s perfect for sunbathing by yourself or catching up with the family. Relax on the sofa with friends, sunbathe while your kids play and keep a pitcher of something refreshing close to hand on the garden table.
