Wicker is a wise option for outdoor or indoor use as it is durable, lightweight and versatile. Wicker is a type of weave and uses both natural and synthetic materials. The type of wicker chosen will greatly depend on its purpose.

Organic wicker furniture – Organic wicker is strong and best for spaces indoors. Since weaving bamboo or rattan makes natural wicker, they can develop mold, become brittle or unravel if they are exposed to high temperatures or moisture. Therefore if you choose organic wicker for your living room or dining room, it is best to place it in an area that doesn’t receive strong sunlight, as this can cause fading. Look for furniture sets that include lounge style wicker chairs, coffee tables, and sofas to suit your space.

Synthetic wicker furniture – With many people living in smaller spaces, the market for outdoor furniture has grown. Homeware stores offer wicker sofas to coffee tables that fit well in an outdoor setting. There are many countries like Vietnam and Indonesia that specialize in outdoor wicker sets, which are known for their quality. Look for synthetic wicker that is weatherproof and water resistant to ensure that your wicker furniture will withstand the elements.


Most wicker furniture sets are expensive, but they are an investment as they will last you a lifetime and require little to no maintenance.
