When it comes to warm-weather lounging, there are few types of furniture breezier and more summery than wicker. Yes, there are some downsides to this backyard favorite – namely, lack of durability – but with hardy synthetic versions becoming easier to find these days, you can get the look of wicker without the headache. We’ve rounded up a few of the most wicked woven pieces we could find in our photo gallery below. Take a peek to see what’s new in wicker.
A Lavish Outdoor Lounge
Sectionals aren’t just for the indoors. If you’re used to having a lot of guests over, make sure they all have a comfy place to sit with Pottery Barn’s all-weather wicker sectional. Made of a synthetic woven material that mimics the breezy look of wicker while standing up to the elements, this roomy outdoor couch will make your backyard a true second living room.
Or for a more dramatic look, check out PB’s rounded sectional in the same durable wicker finish. The curved shape makes it especially conducive to lively conversation.
If you’d rather nap than talk, Belham Living’s Bella All Weather Wicker Daybed is basically like having another bed outdoors. The resin wicker weave stands up to sun and water, and the four-inch-thick spun-poly cushions provide plenty of plush padding for afternoon snoozes.
The perfect setting for relaxing with your significant other, the Nagoya Dual Outdoor Chaise is double the pleasure and double the fun with two height-adjustable recliners that each come with their own beverage stand. Face the yin to your yang while you catch some rays or put the umbrella up when you need some shade.
A playful take on Pier 1’s popular Papasan chair, the Swingasan and Double Swingasan are the perfect way to get the party in full swing! The side compartments provide plenty of room for drinks and the weather-resistant synthetic rattan will last for years to come.
Accessorize in Style
If you’re looking for a wicker piece that will give you the most bang for your buck, the Pacific Cool Bar from Keter is a multi-use piece worth investing in. Use it as a patio table by day, and then pull the tabletop up when the party arrives to serve as a bar-height surface with room for drinks underneath.
Rustic resin wicker and sleek glass combine harmoniously to form this easy and breezy coffee table from the Palm Harbor Collection. It’s the perfect size for setting some fruity drinks upon between lazy dips in the pool.
When it’s warm enough to move the party outdoors, the bar should follow too. The Forever Patio Hampton Wicker Bar is made of a hard-wearing resin wicker in a stylish chocolate finish and comes with two matching backless stools.
