Modern wicker was initially developed as a basket weaving technique. In time, it evolved into furniture. By the 17th century, in Northern Europe, wicker looked a lot like it does today. The trend soon spread all over the world and became as popular and as common as it is today. Then, in the mid 19th century it reached the United States where it was quickly industrialized and mass-produced.
The term has evolved to define anything made specifically from the rattan plant. The material is preferred by the wicker manufacturers because of its increased strength and durability compared to reeds and other fibers. Wicker, on the other hand, is the product resulted from weaving rattan, cane, willow, raffia and other natural materials. These are first cut into strips, dried and often soaked in water to become more flexible, after which they’re woven into wicker.
Wicker furniture can fit nicely in coastal decors or beach homes with an airy and breezy feel. The wam nature of rattan contrasts with the cool blue and white tones resulting in a balanced look. You can customize your rattan furniture with all sorts of cushions and accent pillows. Even though it’s so lightweight, wicker furniture is actually very sturdy and durable.
