Tuesday’s Trends: Wicker

Hello Fabulistas! If you’ve been keeping up with SF lately, you’ve probably noticed that I’m thinking a lot about spending time outside. The weather is just irresistible! I also have wicker on the mind because it’s a classic staple of outdoor furniture. Don’t be mistaken. Wicker isn’t boring! Here are some of my favorite wicker pieces and sources of inspiration right now:

Neon arm candy

When I think about wicker, the first thing my mind goes to is porch furniture. I certainly wouldn’t think of this fab clutch, but isn’t the saturated neon color amazing? Some of the best fashion pieces are unexpected!

Painted twist

In comparison to carrying a neon wicker bag, you may think it’s a much bigger statement to paint your wicker furniture. Embrace colorful wicker in your home, too! It looks so chic and makes for a fashionable–but not too bold–statement.

Not-your-average basket

There are all kinds of wicker baskets. I could write a whole post just about them! This table by designer Alberto Fabbian, called “&ability”, comes with vases and wicker baskets. They’re so versatile and chic! Read more about the project here.

Pup-toting bike basket

Now you know that I love dogs, so I can’t help but highlight this fab little bike basket that’s meant to hold a smaller dog. Plus the safety cage keeps the little one from jumping out while you’re riding around!

Sturdy patio chair 

So this chair is technically aluminum with resin wicker, but isn’t it fab? I love the simple silhouette and bright burst of color. Plus, you won’t have to worry about the elements harming the material.
