Who would have believed it? Left by the way side for a long time, since it was considered kitsch and has-been, it has become the new obsession of designers. Chic and exotic, multi-faceted wicker corresponds to the ultra-trendy vibe of the moment: a return to the essentials and a natural feeling.
Because it’s furiously eco-friendly
The new marching order is: slow design. A philosophy that emulates well-being and the respect of nature for a minimalist and streamlined result. Finally, by opting for wicker, you are contributing to saving the planet. It’s a weed that must be cut to allow the tree to breathe. Thus, you fight against deforestation and lower the quantity of CO2. Bingo ! In addition, a great way of playing the hippy chic card.
For the English cottage look
Born under the Second Empire, wicker is the star material of Winter living rooms, greenhouses, mainly in the country, where the most famed crowned heads met for tea time. So we are doing the same and recreating our very English small cocoon at the heart of Paris. All you need to do is mix wicker, flower motifs and white furniture for a luminous, rustic and romantic result.
Because caning is at the peak of hype
Totally design and super elegant ! This unique braiding gives timeless charm to contemporary pieces such as the bed-board designed by Dorothée Meilichzon at the Hotel Panache. It mingles perfectly with different materials such as wood, velvet or metal. Without forgetting the traditional bistro chairs of the Drucker house that have become super trendy and that everyone wants to have in their living room. The small plus: going for a wide array of colours.
