Ripple Wicker

We have admired UK-based furniture and lighting company Soane’s ripple wicker console for some time now (see below two images). Since they have introduced this console, many designers have followed suit creating their own variations of this wonderful concept. We saw so much of it at High Point Market that we are officially calling it a trend! This type of wicker with an undulating base designed to look like a fabric skirt was originally manufactured in the 1950’s. We think there’s nothing chicer than adding a touch of wicker to any room–whether you live near the beach or not!
