Wicker - the Southern Favorite

Now that we’re enjoying our porches, patios, decks, and sunrooms, let’s pay tribute to the versatile, southern favorite--wicker furniture. You probably own some of this in your home and it may have been in your family and passed down for a few generations. Wicker is a classic! Whether in its natural state, painted a bright accent color, or in the classic, crisp white, wicker pieces are one of the most adaptable furniture accents around and here’s a few pieces we have in store.
