Have you always liked wicker, but figured it was a material limited to outdoor patio sets? We have good news for you! Over the years, designers have found ways to bring woven textures right into the home. Wicker gives a room visual texture, so it’s a useful element to work with indoors. And depending on how it’s used, it can accent almost any home style. Woven textures can look classic, fun, artsy, rustic or chic, depending on how each texture is used. Read on to learn how to use woven textures in a variety of home styles and possibly find some inspiration.
Use woven textures in large elements in the room
A large wicker storage container can make a good coffee table in more casual designs.
One of the easiest ways to use a woven texture is to have it as a single, large element in a room. You may use a large wicker storage container as a coffee table, as in the photo above. Or you could try one large chair or a sofa as a woven texture piece.
This idea adds visual texture into a room without dominating the space. Having only one wicker element draws attention to the texture, but other elements in the room soften it. What you’re left with is a textured accent, without the space looking too rustic.
Woven textures fit naturally in outdoor areas and sunrooms
Wicker furniture in a sunroom is a good way to bring woven textures into the home without sacrificing the formality of indoor living spaces.
Of course, wicker still works in transitional spaces, too. Wicker patio sets in enclosed spaces like sunrooms are attractive, as the photo above shows. The all-wicker set gives the space more of a casual, outdoorsy feel, which is the perfect aesthetic for a sunroom. You might also consider adding wicker chairs next to large bay windows or patio doors.
