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.
We suggest letting nature become a part of the interior design. Bring the outdoors in by putting the spotlight on the views and by exposing the windows. Nature adds balance to decors and also complements the dark hues and the simple and straight lines that usually define masculine spaces. A nicely framed view, a potted plant, a green wall or a colorful accent feature allow the decor to avoid looking monotonous and bland.
Chen Chen & Kai Williams designed something called The Third Eye Vessel. It’s a magazine rack which has a rather unusual form. Its body is made up of three panels that form a sort of open box that lets you place your books along its sides so they can be automatically aligned. It’s a simple and clever system and the marble really makes the piece pop.
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.
