Wicker is a particular weave of rattan, a tough, woody vine. It has long been used to make a variety of items, ranging from furniture to dinner placemats. A three-piece wicker patio set will usually consist of two chairs and a table, but it can have other configurations. Within that basic set, there can be a wide variety of styles and shapes.
One is a neat little set that tucks up into a rectangular box when not in use. Another style is that of a traditional round patio table and two comfortable armchairs. Or, if you like to get a little height on your table and seating, you could have a bar and two bar stools. Equally valid is a lovely woven love seat and matching chair along with a small table. Wicker is simply an amazing medium and can be used to make a variety of styles and shapes. Need to have a little storage with your patio furniture? A wicker table with matching storage stools will take care of storing outdoor toys or cushions.
Or imagine a barrel-shaped table and two matching chairs that are shaped very nearly like a classic kitchen chair. Rattan is such an amazing material that there's really no end to the different configurations for a 3-piece wicker patio set.
Traditional wicker weave designs are nearly endless and create a continuous array of options for your patio furnishing enjoyment. All it takes is a little imagination and discovering the wicker furniture that best suits you.
