For the Love of Wicker

Jul 18, 2018

We have a never-ending fondness for wicker. 

First and foremost, there is so much history woven into this timeless material, tracing back to the days of the Egyptian pharaohs, the Calvinists and even the Pilgrims. 

The natural material and beautiful woven technique adds texture and richness to rooms and can suit many styles, whether rustic, shabby-chic, coastal, or tropical. 

Furthermore, wicker brings nature inside any room. It is also very useful as outdoor furniture, especially in tropical, humid climates. 

Although the material may have reached the height of it's popularity during the reign of Queen Victoria in the 19th century, it is still prevalent today. 

Read on for a roundup of our favorite designs that incorporate this everlasting material!

We love how multi-faceted the styling of wicker can be. Sometimes it reads as bohemian chic...

Other times as cohesive, clean and modern...
