Deco Alert: Wonder Wicker

Still freezing outside but if like me you are already thinking about spring here a trendy way to spruce up our home for the milder weather. Lately I`ve seen an increased number of wicker funiture and lighting.  The traditional craft of weaving meets modern shapes and I  love the result. Have a look here:

Design studio Chudy / Grase have created a lovely collection called “Meet the Wicker” . By combining the traditional craft with the industrial metal frame the project aims to go away from the crafty look of wicker weaving and instead reinterprets the plants core values. The result is a series of fab modern pieces.
