Do you have an outdoor space or that is in need of a makeover? Consider using wicker to do the job. It can create a feeling of warmth, focus and conversation with family and friends.
What is it about wicker that has everyone talking these days? Wicker furniture is environmentally sound, beautifully crafted and comes in a variety of styles. It is reminiscent of tropical lands and sunny days but you can bring that type of atmosphere to your home right now.
Wicker Furniture Groupings
You might be asking how you can do just that. Begin with your choice of furniture. There are many types of sturdy plant materials used in the making of wicker products: rattan, bamboo, reed and the like. Rattan is a good choice because it is composed of solid fibers and not hollow like bamboo.
The appeal includes the natural colors. You will often see natural deep or light browns in wicker furniture. These add simplicity to a design that can be accentuated in a variety of ways.
If you are looking to match a certain decor, there are other colors. Other than brown you will see a lot of white wicker furnishings. This adds another note of cleanness to the room. Painted wicker can be found in almost any other color you want as well.
Buying furniture in groupings is not only easier but also less expensive. Natural wicker furnishings can be pricey depending on the manufacturer you are buying from. Choose rattan dining room sets, living room suites and even bedroom furniture. You will know that the pieces match well with each other.
Wicker furniture cushions are available in a large array of tropical prints which gives you, the buyer, a chance to change the feel of your room based on the color and style of cushioning. For example, a green floral print on white wicker, can give off a more tropical relaxed feel to a sunroom. For a living room, natural wicker furnishings with dark or reddish cushioning can create a more intimate feel.
Wicker is not just for furniture. You can use complementary indoor wicker lamps to add to the effect you are trying to create in your room of choice. Use floor model lamps or table lamps if you prefer that have durable wicker outside and inner fabric that diffuses the light throughout the room.
Employing outdoor lamps indoors allows you the versatility of going from one area to another without fuss. Again, purchasing your accents in groups ensures that all complement each other.
Because of the natural colors and excellent quality, wicker can be used to add depth and style to any room in the house. If ambiance is what you are trying to achieve, you have many choices of wicker styles.
