They are helpful in the kitchen to display and store, but most of all they are a beautiful decorating element. I also use them to cover up holes in the wall or ugly electricity points and flexes.
I use wicker plates to decorate my dining table and they always add a rustic element right away together with fresh herbs in baskets. At night I use them as lanterns with little lights in them.
They are my favourite still life elements. As they seem to adjust to every colour scene. In my kitchen I use lobster baskets to store my cork. The wicker-bottle standing next to them is a collector's item from the local brewery, it used to contain beer. It is very old and still in good shape :)
My kitchen wall is a display of different wicker baskets. Very handy, when I need something I just grab it from the wall. Who said decorating can't be practical ? hihi
This is my favourite wicker chair from France. I love the design and it sits great! Its colour matches the yellow wall beautiful and by itself it is already a beautiful still life. I bought two of them on a flea market for 10,- hihi. But they are priceless to me know, I love them.
So if you ever visit a flea market or an outlet sale keep your eyes open for wicker items. They are practical and beautiful at the same time! I hope you enjoyed this post and I wish you a nice day :))
