Metals, cane or rattan, and plastics have their place, particularly for outdoor and patio furniture. However, none of these has the look of high quality solid wood furniture. For accent pieces, yes, metals and even ceramics and glass can look great. A smoked glass top on a coffee table can be very attractive in the correct setting, but for a main dining table you cannot beat solid wood.
Accent chairs come in styles and materials to suit every taste, every room and every wallet. A basic bargain-basement model of a contemporary chair is mass produced from mostly plastic, and will not break the bank. But a custom job, made from exotic wood from the Amazon and a tooled leather seat and back crafted by an internationally acclaimed artist, could set you back quite a few thousand dollars.
