Vintage wicker ...

Vintage wicker feels comfortably at home on a welcoming wraparound porch. But, it's equally appealing in a romantic bedroom or thoroughly modern loft. Its familiar feel makes wicker a perfect casual partner anywhere, just like those well-worn slippers that are too precious to toss.

Vintage wicker appeals to our country roots and always looks farmhouse fresh. Bring me a cool glass of iced tea, and I'll just sit a spell here on the front porch.

But, don't be fooled. Wicker is a worthy companion for contemporary lifestyles, too. Clean lines and woven naturals appeal to modern sensibilities as well.

I'm a big fan of wicker at the table. From humble chargers on the dining table (above) to classic seating (below), wicker creates a casual ambiance that puts guests at ease.

Is it the tactile quality of wicker bottle covers, or the rustic simplicity of woven fishing creels that appeals to me most?

No, no, I love the practicality of wicker baskets more. Although, vintage headboards are truly romantic ...
