Expert handmade rattan furniture supplier
Iola is a rattan furniture supplier whose creations exclusively from Australia and New Zealand are hand crafted by our team of master weavers, originating from Cebu in the Philippines, and produced in our state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities, with exacting standards for quality. Although we are already a leading outdoor furniture supplier in 5 European countries and have an office in the United Kingdom, we very much still consider ourselves a New Zealand business. The owners of the business started the company four years ago from the ground up. We built furniture we would want to buy. We have never built our furniture to a budget. Instead we use only the best materials and employ the finest weavers. However, as a rattan furniture supplier we also make sure we are extremely competitive on price. We are proud of the fact you would have to spend twice as much to buy a similar spec of furniture from any other outdoor furniture supplier.
We combine design, skill and technology, along with over 30 years of experience in the world’s most prestigious rattan factories. We are particularly proud of the brand new ‘Sail Bed’, which was inspired by the Sydney Opera House This piece of furniture is at the cutting edge of outdoor furniture design, is truly exceptional and is a testament to the team we have brought together to create all weather rattan outdoor furniture of unparalleled quality and desirability. The Sail Bed takes an incredible 27 days to weave and incorporates a mechanism which permits the sails to rotate about the base, enabling the user to control the amount of direct sunlight exposure, or increase privacy.
As an outdoor furniture supplier we are dedicated to providing beautiful and enduring furniture, which incorporates three key elements; cutting edge design, high quality raw materials and craftsmanship. At iola we only use the very best materials and the world’s finest weavers. Each and every supplier of the materials we use has been chosen because they are the unsurpassed experts in their field. German fibre from Rehau™, fabrics from Sunbrella and our exclusive Italian Mill create iola’s exclusive range of Italian performance fabrics. This combination makes us an unbeatable outdoor furniture supplier in terms of quality as well as value for money. We were the first and only rattan furniture supplier to use reticulated marine foam™ in Europe, which enables all season outdoor performance. We use commercial grade alloy frames and marine grade (316) stainless steel for all exposed fittings, making our all weather rattan outdoor furniture unbeatable in terms of quality.
Our conceptions are brought to life by employing the undisputed leaders in weaving from Cebu in the Philippines.
We hope this brief introduction gives you some insight into the attention to detail we, as an outdoor furniture supplier, have applied in the pursuit of becoming the very best in our field. Over the past two years we have been the dominant rattan furniture supplier in the New Zealand and Australia market. Why are these markets so significant you ask? Due to the extreme temperatures and heavy rainfall they are a real test of any outdoor furniture supplier in terms of longevity and durability. Our product information, available on our website, details why the materials used in this type of furniture are so important, and why, amongst other things, we chose a German fibre manufacturer. The simple fact is that they produce the best rattan available worldwide. Other types of rattan fibre may be adequate for low UV climates but they can not cope with our climate. No wonder German fibres cost three times that of lesser weaving materials.
All of this detail, quality and design is somewhat diminished if the product becomes unobtainable by virtue of a very high price. We strive to supply the highest quality all weather rattan outdoor furniture, which is not bettered by any other brand, whilst maintaining a middle market price point. Sure it isn’t cheap, however, there are many other brands at our price point selling far inferior products. There are also two or three brands which are materially more expensive yet offer less than iola.
We hope you take pleasure in our collection of stunning photographs presenting our beautiful, all weather rattan outdoor furniture creations.
The iola vision...
I entered the business a number of years ago after conducting research, originally as a consumer. I found significant variation in price with very little factual information available to gauge quality (vendors don’t want you to know). Pricing in the market seemed indeterminate, with cheap, poor quality products, but also some expensive, poor quality products.
At iola we shout about the materials we use because we know they are the finest available. We do not simply claim to use good quality materials and stop there. We list the brands we use so customers can assess our product thoroughly. We are not just confident; we know we are a rattan furniture supplier producing the finest available in Europe, NZ and the South Pacific. Spend some time with us and find out why you should purchase from iola.
We consistently dominate the markets we have operated in because our discerning customers have quickly realised there is no other outdoor furniture supplier in the marketplace able to match our unique offering.
