These pieces are so much more refined than the wicker chest I had in high school in my Laura Ashley bedroom. (Believe me, it was an improvement over the whole rainbow and unicorn thing I had going on in junior high.) If you’ve been thinking of adding a little texture, these are cute and inexpensive wicker furnishings made from all sorts of often renewable, natural (and a few synthetic) fibers. A word of caution however. If you have a puppy, skip the wicker. Years ago I borrowed a white wicker table from a boyfriend’s mom to use in my sparsely furnished studio apartment. My ten-week-old cocker spaniel ate the entire thing, literally. (He was really cute though.)
