Funny you should say that rattan furniture looks shoddy after a few years, I was just thinking the opposite. I have had my dark brown/black rattan sofa and chairs for over 6years now and have never even covered them over the winter. I looked at them only yesterday and thought they have been the best garden seating I have ever bought. Over the past 50years or so, I have had metal and teak wood sets but none have looked as new after the same period of time as the current rattan set have.

Love the shelving on the walls with pots on. Great idea and adaptable!
