Few materials are as versatile as wicker. It is easily shaped into a huge variety of forms and painted or stained in any color you fancy. Traditional designs and styles are eternally popular, but you’ll also find exciting contemporary designs that will complement the decor anywhere in your home.
Whatever type of chair you love, you’ll find it in a wicker pattern. Those with strong rattan frames are a favorite for the sunroom or patio room but it doesn’t stop there. There’s a style of wicker chair for every kind of living space. Because wicker is a durable and hard-wearing material it’s also suitable for use in a variety of different environments, from outside on patios or decks to steamy bathrooms.
Rocking chairs and wing-back easy chairs with deep seats offer classic style and comfort in the living room. The traditional designs range from nineteenth century styles to classic styles made famous by the Heywood Wakefield Company in Massachusetts, who were inspired by the Arts and Crafts Movement and then by French Art Deco. Wicker chairs that recreate classic designs of the early twentieth century are still made today and recall the elegant aesthetic of a bygone age.
As well as chic and trendy pieces, you’ll discover well-styled pieces with a contemporary twist. The traditional loft chair has a thoroughly modern look that will look good in a minimalist apartment, student digs or even the office. Wicker chairs look just as good with today’s modern decor as they do in a country home with heritage features or traditional design or architecture.
