Top 10: Modern Wicker Furniture

For a while, wicker had a reputation as the staple of country style. That's changed recently as modern designers incorporate more natural materials. "Wicker" refers to plant fibers woven into objects...usually furniture or baskets. Fibers are stiff, sturdy, and lightweight and can range from rattan to willow to bamboo. Here are a few of the modern shapes (both old and new) that we love the most...
