|Many ask: What exactly is Seagrass Furniture?
n the islands off the shores of Bali, seagrass grows wild and is made into everything from baskets to beautiful seagrass furniture.
OCEANSIDE LIVING AND DECOR, has been having their furniture made in Bali since 2005 and delivered to beautified small coastal cottages,
condos, to large elegant estates across America, expecially along the eastern seaboard of the United States.
Water hyacinth as shown in the photos above, shows a natural reed color with variations of dark and light tones, and provides a beach living
environment in one's home, business, or hotel. Water hyacinth is incredibly strong, with nylon-like fibers inside the reeds with a hard shell casing.
After woven, sealed and protected with 2 coats of clear lacquer finish, the furniture after woven is compared to the strength of steel cable, but is
certified by the manufacturer as 90% Organic. Renewable and healthy to our environment, this furniture won't end up in landfills and the bottom of our
oceans as does metal, or iron furniture. Also water hyacinth seagrass is very durable; it doesn't easily break or snap like rattan. Once rattan is
broken, the entire piece of furniture is of no use and can't be repaired. Seagrass CAN be repaired very easily, and will last for decades with proper
care. It has been said that seagrass actually provides healing to one's body, and the 100% cotton seat and pillow covers are organic as well, and
treated with an eco-friendly solution. They are water repellent and soil guarded...How great this is. You can enjoy white and off white fabric and no
worries, as the liquids will bead up like mercury and roll off. With a damp, clean cloth, simply wipe over the fabric and soil marks disappear.
