Alternatively you can say "resin wicker":

At 1st For Cane, we sell a range of wicker chairs, tables and settees suitable for indoor and outdoor use. RESIN WICKER FURNITURE is furniture WOVEN USING A HARDER MATERIAL THAN CANE OR RATTAN.
OUR RESIN [sic?]* WICKER FURNITURE IS MADE FROM BOTH NATURAL (RATTAN) AND SYNTHETIC (RESIN) WICKER. Natural wicker furniture is not suitable for all year outdoors use; resin wicker furniture is, however.
Resin wicker furniture is a fairly new concept that has revolutionised the world of wicker furniture. However, wicker chairs are now widely available in both natural and resin wicker furniture ranges. Often, it’s hard to tell the difference.
Why is resin wicker furniture so much better?
Not so long ago, using wicker furniture on a sunny day in the garden meant grabbing the wicker chairs from the conservatory, and dashing back with them if it rained. The only alternative was metal or plastic.
Now, we have RESIN WICKER FURNITURE – the smart and affordable way to use wicker chairs outdoors all year round. Resin wicker furniture is hard to tell from the rattan wicker chairs and tables made for indoors, with one important difference. Resin wicker furniture doesn’t rot or need bringing indoors (unless of course you want to). Wicker furniture made from resin lasts too. And, of course, RESIN WICKER CHAIRS look fabulous.
[same site as one of the above]

* I suspect they meant to say "Our wicker furniture is made from ...", but they might also do a line in resin-coated cane or rattan, which might explain "Our resin wicker furniture is made from both natural (rattan) and synthetic (resin) wicker".

agree  Tony M: Though strictly speaking, isn't there a difference between 'cane' and 'rush'? There's nothing to say for sure that this is 'wicker' furniture, however "picturesquely situated" it might be... perhaps they are just referring to the seat material?

lacquered rush

it should mean polished with resin, hence lacquered.... and rush is somewhat lighter than cane

probably depends how old these chairs are, rush seats were put into a lot of traditional (and neo-traditional/revival) chairs. Although just the seat was made of rushes, the whole chair was called "rush chair" or sometimes "bentwood etc with rush seat"=much longer!)

neutral  B D Finch: As noted to Raffaela, this is not the same as jonc en resine is totally made with resin. Also, jonc is wicker, not rush.//Sorry, that was meant to be a neutral comment, not an agree, as I don't agree! Only seats can be made of rush, not frames.
