Synthetic wicker was then invented, also in the US. This allowed it to become more durable and resistant to weather and pests. Modern wicker is usually made from rattan and it‘s really versatile. In fact, rattan furniture can fit in nearly any interior, also being very popular outdoors. It‘s appreciated for its casual and airy appearance, usually being associated with manual labor and unique hand-crafted designs.
Modern wicker was initially developed as a basket weaving technique. In time, it evolved into furniture. By the 17th century, in Northern Europe, wicker looked a lot like it does today. The trend soon spread all over the world and became as popular and as common as it is today. Then, in the mid 19th century it reached the United States where it was quickly industrialized and mass-produced.

Similar to these, the sideboard from Boca do Lobo features a mesmerizing design with several layers, each telling a different story and together creating a wonderful big picture.
Obviously, just because you want a space to be comfortable and practical doesn’t mean you shouldn‘t pay attention to the looks. A good idea is to pick materials that stand out and that have a well-defined look and character, materials such as wood and metal. Complement them with something a bit more delicate such as frosted glass.
