#OKLObsessed: Wicker Pieces We’re Loving from Instagram

Filed Under:

Use It to Anchor a Space à la @crystalpalecek

Nothing says “Hi, I’m a gorgeous beach bungalow that you want to lounge in” more than whitewashed wood walls, creamy linens, and a woven wicker headboard. We love the way this textured piece brings a substantial formality to the cool space and banishes any thoughts that wicker belongs only outdoors.

Balance It with Brights and Metallics à la @waitingonmartha

Mastering the mix may be one of the hardest decorating principles to execute, but a simple rule of thumb is to think in juxtapositions. Pairing natural materials, like this hanging wicker chair, with a slick metallic pouf strikes a perfect mod-meets-boho vibe. And adding a cozy shearling to soften any edges is always right in our book.

More Is More à la @whitneyleighmorris

Let’s be honest: Wicker’s most beloved moment usually comes in the form of a vintage peacock chair. So the crew behind L.A. hot spot The Butcher’s Daughter kicked it into overdrive when outfitting its entire outdoor area in scaled-down wicker peacock chairs with upholstered seats and marble bistro tables, because in this case you can’t have too much of a good—nay, great—thing.

Make a Statement à la @bay_beachhouse

So far we’ve learned that wicker doesn’t just belong outdoors and the more sculptural pieces the merrier. Now we turn our sights upward to the beauty that wicker lighting brings. Take this oversize pendant over a farm table in a dining room: The natural materials pair seamlessly, and the breaks in the weave of the fixture will give your space a special glow.

Coordinate with Other Boho Beauties à la @em_henderson

It’s no surprise that interior design maven Emily Henderson would style her own office space to beautiful bohemian perfection, and we especially love how the colorful pastel palette of the room makes this wicker settee fresh and modern. Coupled with plenty of greenery (a boho must) and a graphic midcentury-inspired rug (all captured by photographer Tessa Neustadt), this little corner feels cozy and collected and makes us smile.

Let It Shine à la @kellilamb_

If you have a special oversize wicker piece you want to really stand out, do just that. Pick a corner, nook, or accent wall and give the piece a great clean-lined light-source friend. Add a simple nesting or side table and you’ll create a moment you’ll always want to curl up in.
