Traditionally, outdoor wicker furniture was made using woven vines or stems of the rattan vine. However, most wicker patio furniture today is made from synthetic, non-pourous vinyls and resins, which are woven around aluminum frames. This synthetic wicker resists wear and tear from the sun and rain, while aluminum frames will not rust like steel and are stronger and lighter than traditional rattan frames.
Everything we sell at Wicker Central is outdoor wicker. This means that each piece is designed to stand up to the sun, rain, and elements without worry of fading, mold, or weakening. Each manufacturer is different, and we recommend reading each brand's information before ordering.
Let's be honest - you can probably buy a cheaper patio set at a box store... with emphasis on the word "cheaper." We believe that you get what you pay for. That's why Wicker Central sells only the highest quality wicker furniture. Companies like Telescope Casual, NorthCape International, and WhiteCraft have been manufacturing high quality furniture for over 50 years. We know that weak, broken furniture reflects poorly on us and just makes you purchase new furniture next year. You can rest assured that everything we sell is intended to last. Warranty information is listed along with every product on our website.
Every item sold on Wicker Central.com is warehoused in North America. Smaller orders are sent UPS; larger orders require common carrier freight delivery. Lead times are typically dependent on cushions - some are warehoused and some are made-to-order. Most of our brands will ship within two weeks; others take a bit longer. Make sure to read the shipping information listed with each product to be aware of shipping estimates.
We pride ourselves on rapid shipping and customer service! If you are interested in quick shipping, contact our customer service and we'll be happy to see if we can fulfill your needs! Since we ship for free*, you receive your furniture at your home without having to pay or move it by yourself!

Each of our products is listed with best-selling wicker colors and fabric options. However, the limits of space prevent us from listing every single fabric option available for many of our collections. If you'd like a larger variety of fabric options, contact us at customer service and we'd be happy to work with you.
Some of our manufacturers also offer COM (customers own material) to create the cushions. If you have a fabric that you'd like used for your wicker furniture, contact us and we'd be happy to work with you.
