Wicker is a great material for the outdoors. It is easy to maintain, light enough to move around and it is a natural material that blends with the outdoors. Wicker weaving patterns have become more elaborate with furniture designers getting excited about this pliable product. Aged wicker furniture can be restored by tightening the weave and a fresh coat of varnish or paint. My personal preference is any polish that lets the wicker be true to its texture and color. Here is a collection of outdoor spaces featuring glamorous wicker furniture. I hope it makes you think better of wicker!
