The thought of wicker furniture might first conjure up basic patio sets, but these days, home goods made from woven plant materials are stylishly incorporated all over the home.
As our recent On Trend story explains, furniture and decor woven from natural fibers like rattan and cane are more fashionable than ever, their natural warmth and airy feel offering an antidote to the sharp, opaque modernism of plastic and metal.
Author Rachel del Valle writes: “Cane, which can be woven into virtually anything, is a material that complements: It makes a room look better, more pulled together, more thoughtful than a simpler, denser material would.”
