Default Patio Furniture (Rattan Sofa)

Hello,

I have a home on the island and I've been searching to find some rattan / outdoor furniture (a sofa set). Something like this:

I've searched around a bit and found a few places that sell rattan furniture, but shock and awe, it's expensive to import!

I'm wondering if anyone else has purchased a similar set or knows a good place to get a deal? I've been a member of some facebook buy and sell groups for about a year but I've never seen anything used for sale. Just curious if anyone has any tips.

PS, i feel like I've asked this question before so forgive me if I'm a broken record. I searched my thread history and can't see myself asking this before... just feel like I might have.

I'd suggest , if you haven't already.. Designer Decor, in the Pine Industrial complex. Designer Decor Inc This is local on the island, but yes, it would have been brought in, so the prices aren't going to be cheap (nothing is..)...

i'm not seeing much in the buy sell groups that I'm on in Barbados either..

I imported aluminium framed poly rattan furniture from ikea in the uk, comes flat packed, works well, the cushion covers are easily washable and cheaply repkacable.

I live in Bali where they make this synthetic rattan outdoor furniture...my living room has similar furniture as in your link.
There are many manufacturers who ship worldwide...
Our visitors from USA ordered two sofas and a custom coffee table back to Seattle.
Here is the company they used...we know the owner as Ziatun. I suggest you just select something from her catalogue and ask the price and delivery charge to where you are....she might have sent there before and have taxes/custom fees on file. You'll then get some idea of total cost.
Say clients Ita and David recommended and she shipped to our friends in Seattle.

I had a look at the catalogue, a lot of the more modern stuff is very like ikea furniture. Ikea is available in many countries, in the uk a 3 seater plus 2 1 seaters plus coffee table is about 500 pounds, less if imported from the usa.
