Fall in Love with Rattan and Wicker All Over Again

Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

Fashions and trends change with the season but they are not 'once seen then forgotten', as the majority of them come back again and again.  There may be subtle changes to the design but the 'yoyo' material is rattan and wicker.  We have loved rattan and wicker since Egyptian times, and have had a love hate relationship with it ever since.  Our love for all things rustic has seen rattan and wicker sneaking into our homes again.  It's not just baskets that we are indulging in, with these fabulous products you will be in love with rattan and wicker all over again. This stunning contemporary ceiling light is a Chameleon as it would blend into a variety of styles and homes.

Adding a warm and loving glow, you can't help but adore this lantern.  The grey wicker design protects the candle from blowing out in the wind.

The relaxing calm for this table lamp makes it perfect for a coastal, country, rustic look.  But don't think this lamp is destined for casual as the robust nickel base makes it perfect for a room requiring a more formal setting.
