Why Southerners Have Always Loved Wicker
Keeps Things Familiar
When you’re creating an eclectic, collected look, you must include a traditional piece or two to keep the combination from being too overwhelming. In here, that’s the green wicker chairs and the blue and white striped rug.
Bring a Room Down to Earth
All that white! All that furniture! This living room could have quickly become uptight without some key, low-key elements like the wicker lampshade which was actually found at a thrift store for nearly pennies!

Thickly woven wicker lounge chairs like these arranged in a seating arrangement that you’d expect in a living room with accessories to match round out a completely comfortable porch sitting area.
This old green wicker rocking chair set looks right at home on this recently renovated Tennessee mountain house when in fact, it came from the homeowner’s relatives. When in doubt, opt for wicker.
Giving a wicker console a fanciful, skirted table effect can help but lighten the mood in any setting. Plus: it divides the room quite nicely!
Make it Over
There’s a surplus of old wicker furniture that should not be overlooked as makeover candidates. Shiny red paint and a thick box cushion took this chair from the trash heap and into the office.
