Let’s talk all things wicker and woven on this fine Tuesday! Shall we? I’ve loved rattan, wicker, cane webbing, grasscloth, and all the pretty woven materials for just about as long as I can remember. They add such a nice texture and warmth to any indoor or outdoor space, and these materials are truly dimensional art. I’ve noticed lots of brands and designers sharing and incorporating lots of woven furniture and decor lately, so I thought it would be fun to round up some of my personal favorites! This month’s Trend Alert post is devoted to just that… the most beautiful wicker pieces I could find. Click through to check them out and to get lots of fun design inspiration!
This article at Introspective Magazine (the 1st Dibs publication) is such a fun read! It covers the practicality, design history, and new inspiration for materials like rattan. I loved seeing the timeless wicker and woven furniture in the early 1900s images- absolutely stunning! Definitely check that out.
From lighting and furniture to small decor and accessories, I went on a major hunt for woven pieces that have a timeless or lasting, yet updated feel to them. Like my friend Alisa’s table lamp, pictured above, I found lots of modern & sculptural forms that perfectly pair with these classic materials.
My goal was to find 10 awesome pieces, but I ended up with 20+! There were so many beautiful options, and I discovered some great new resources as well.

Do you have favorites from the mix? I obviously have #9 in our formal living room (which I love), but I’m VERY into the pedestal urn (#4) and the console table (#21).
This entire bedroom, pictured above, has me smitten. Those woven bedside tables with the wicker lamps are so perfect in this space… not to mention- the wall color, bed canopy, art, and millwork are also perfection.
I’m also a fan of woven lighting… particularly lamps and sconces. Just because your home doesn’t have a coastal aesthetic, doesn’t mean you can’t integrate woven materials. I think it’s all about moderation and what you style alongside them.
I fully realize the image quality of the above photo is total garbage (I’m not one to share pixelated images here on the blog- it drives me crazy), but I felt like I had to share this one! Can you believe that pedestal planter? The size and scale are really cool. I feel like that would be nice in my upcoming office renovation. Hah!
What are your thoughts on woven materials? Do you have a go-to material… wicker, rattan, cane, grasscloth, etc? I’m loving all of the sculptural & ruffled shapes and bases we’ve been seeing lately. While some of these pieces could be considered trendy, like the article I linked stated- woven materials feel very timeless. They always come back around or fluctuate in popularity. I think we’re nearing the peak of the popularity right now, but I know I’ll love my ottoman for years to come!
