Design Your Outdoor Space with Wicker

With the outdoor living trend becoming bigger than ever, it is important to learn about each material offered in order to decide which works best for your space. In today’s blog we will be highlighting Summer Classics N-Dura Resin Wicker.

“N-Dura Resin wicker is my favorite material to work with in outdoor settings,” says Cynthia Duke, a Design Consultant at Summer Classics Home in Pelham, AL. “It has the highest UV protection rating, is very versatile in different settings, plus it does well whether it is in a covered porch or an uncovered deck near any body of water. Having grown up across the lake from New Orleans, I have eclectic taste; therefore, I absolutely love how our woven product easily mixes with other Summer Classics materials whether it is wrought aluminum or teak.”

Summer Classics has perfected the craftsmanship of wicker over the years by creating and manufacturing a UV resistant and mildew resistant N-Dura Resin Wicker. Having a UV rating of 4,000, makes Summer Classics wicker the most realistic and extensive UV resistant protocol in the industry as it is guaranteed to not experience any significant color change for 5+ years. It is not only strong and malleable, but solution dyed from its very beginnings, creating a realistic texture and color throughout the frame making each piece unique.

 

If you live near a salt water environment or if your patio is exposed to direct sunlight, then you can’t go wrong with wicker! Not to mention, it requires very little maintenance if you take care of it properly. It also is relatively lightweight as opposed to other Summer Classics materials such as teak, wrought iron, or cast aluminum, making it suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.

When it comes to choosing a wicker frame, Summer Classics also offers a wide array of stylish, yet functional wicker designs. Whether you prefer a more modern take on a classic design or a more traditional look for your space, there are plenty of wicker frames to choose from – nineteen collections to be exact! Five of these collections are part of our “quick-ship” program, which is a program designed to keep the most popular frames in stock so that they can be ready to ship to the customer immediately. The products included in the program are Astoria, Club Woven, Peninsula, Regent and Rustic.
