3 Reasons Customers Prefer “Driftwood Stain” Furniture and Decor

3 Reasons Customers Prefer “Driftwood Stain” Furniture and Decor

Driftwood stains are similar to whitewash but use various greys instead of the white stains used by whitewash. With the increased love of coastal and beachy looking furniture and decor Driftwood has become the most popular of all the stained furniture American Rattan offers in its huge catalog of Rattan and Wicker furniture. American Rattan is the largest Rattan and Wicker store and with such a huge catalog they are able to gauge what people are interested in. Mark Mosher, the founder of American Rattan and also known as the “Rattan Man(TM)” noticed the increased interest in Driftwood (Greywash) stains a few years ago when their Classic Rattan and Braxton Culler lines of custom stained furniture began to get requests for these Driftwood colors.

Why are the Driftwood Stains So Popular?

1. Perfect Choice for a Coastal and Beachy Look – waterfront homes including oceanfront, lakefront, and river front properties are in demand and very popular with just about everyone. When these homes are being furnished the homeowners are looking for Deriftwood stained furniture. The greywash look of Driftwood blends in perfectly with a coastal motif decor. White stains and whitewash stains are also popular but it seems the slightly darker look of Driftwood is even more in demand.

Lets take a look at some of these wonderful examples of American Rattan furniture lines

When people rent a home in the VRBO or Airbnb marketplace they are looking for a unique experience in lodging. The Driftwood stained Rattan furniture provides that furniture that gives that “Wow” response from your rental guests. That is the reason its such popular Driftwood like furniture for rentals because rental owners want to provide that wow type of decor.
