 Wicker Outdoor Furniture

 By Hans Dekker

What can possibly be more gloriously breathtaking than the early morning sky of the sunrise, or the colorful heavens surrounding the setting sun? Imagine yourself seated in the coziest nook of your patio basking in the evening’s last rays from your place in a favorite outdoor wicker furniture piece. Just the thought seems to wash away the tenseness of a long day.

Outdoor wicker furniture has a “personality” all of its own. Its comfortable charm can retain its individuality in simplicity or dressed up. Simple wicker settings carry an aura of old-fashioned homey ease that many find nostalgic. It carries the user back to a time when life was simple and there always seemed to be time to sit on the porch to enjoy the newspaper or chat with passing neighbors.

Add some richly colored cushions to your outdoor wicker furniture and create an entirely different setting. Gone are the comforts of home look. In its place is a Victorian look that carries you even further back in time. Prim and proper were in vogue during that era, and indeed your new outdoor setting fits the definition. Of course you’ll need a few flower boxes nearby, and everything should be neatly in its place to totally complete the setting.

Do you think we could modernize this outdoor wicker furniture that seems to evoke memories of days gone by? Well, let’s give it a try. We’ll start with cushions sparsely scattered with medium to large flowers. Of course we want the wicker painted white, and then we’ll add a big fern plant or some zebra grass right behind the chair in the corner. Hmmm, our tables need glass tops. How are we doing? Yes, it is looking good, eh?

Wicker is extremely versatile. Regardless of the theme your outdoor furniture needs to convey, wicker can fit the bill. Make a few changes of cushions or color, and presto! You’ve got what you’re looking for.
