I can only think this is because they have not been aware that it does not take much to look after it, or perhaps the furniture they purchase was of poor quality.
The best quality garden furniture for the UK should be constructed with a Poly Rattan Weave, and a Steel Alloy framework, with luxury heavy weight cushions. The weather in the UK tends to be "damp" which poly rattan is able to cope without any real issues. Steel-alloy frames should be powder-coated for weather proof durability so can be kept out side all year round and not rust. Rust is a reaction with metal and moisture which over time causes it to corrode.
The cushions however, cannot generally tolerate the UK wet weather, and will need to be brought inside during heavy rain and the winter to ensure the material stays in a good condition.
