What is water hyacinth furniture?
Due to its strong, lightweight, and mold and rot-resistant properties, water hyacinth is a popular choice for furniture. In our case, it's used as a coffee table. It can be woven into chairs, sofas, and even outdoor furniture. There are a lot of affordable and easy-to-find water hyacinth table options available.
Where does it come from?
Originally from Southeast Asia, these tables are made from a type of aquatic plant. After harvesting and drying, the plant is used to create one-of-a-kind coffee tables. Glass tops are typically used on tables to protect the top while allowing you to see the intricate weave of the plant beneath. A sturdy and well-made table like this will last for many years to come.
Invasive plant species, turned intro furniture
Hyacinths reproduce rapidly and quickly cover water bodies, crowding out other plants and animals in the process. Besides blocking waterways, the plant's roots can also clog them, making them impassible for boats and making swimming difficult. As a result, harvesting plants that reproduce so quickly gives us a touch more peace of mind when we see these tables being manufactured.
Caring for your water hyacinth table
Taking good care of your water hyacinth coffee table will ensure it lasts for a long time. You can take good care of your water hyacinth coffee table by following these tips:
- Avoid direct sunlight. If exposed to too much sunlight, water hyacinth can fade or dry out.
- A soft cloth should be used to dust it regularly. By doing this, you will be able to prevent dirt and dust from building up over time and keep the weave looking fresh.
- With your vacuum cleaner's upholstery attachment, lightly vacuum it if it begins to look dull.
- Clean up spills immediately with an absorbent cloth if they occur on the table.
How is the plant prepared for weaving?
Harvesting the water hyacinth plant is the first step in making a coffee table from it. Hands or machines can be used to do this. After the plant is cut into pieces, it is dried out and prepared for the next step.
