Wicker home decor is in no way new, however, more and more, I’m seeing it become a versatile material in all home styles! It used to be associated strictly with coastal, and more recently, it’s been used in the boho style, but now we’re starting to see it in all kinds of home styles, including traditional and modern. And in the wicker home decor category, I’m specifically seeing wicker lamps everywhere, including our new office space!
Recently our team moved out of our temporary office space and into the newly renovated permanent space. I’ve shared bits and pieces on Instagram, but I guess this is how I’m breaking the news to all of you on the blog! We’re still tying up bits and pieces before the official reveal, but I thought I would give you a little sneak peek and also show off this corner in the team space.
I styled this stunning work of art on the media stand, and my jaw is on the floor. The cone shaped wicker shade, in contrast with the green ceramic lamp, adds so much interesting visual texture–my heart can hardly take it!
I also put a super cute, affordable one from Target in the office kitchenette that I can’t wait to show you.
It’s worth addressing the difference between wicker and rattan! Rattan is actually a material, and wicker refers to the method of weaving. Rattan can be woven in the wicker method, but so can other materials like seagrass and hyacinth. Overall, I don’t know if I could spot the differences in materials and methods without referencing some sort of diagram, so forgive me for using the terms interchangeably! Whatever you choose to call these stunning scalloped shades in Greta’s room, I think they add some overall warmth and interest.
In Polly’s room, I have a lamp with a wicker base rather than a shade, and I don’t think you can go wrong with either! Mixing up materials is my favorite way to make a room feel more interesting yet cohesive with the other elements in the room!
I gathered some of my favorite wicker lamps (or rattan?) for you to take a gander upon. There’s a little something in there for every budget and every style, but really, wicker is such a classic, timeless element that I think should be in every home. Enjoy!

Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

We recently painted our study a dark, moody green color. This is after we first painted it a muddy green, then repainted it a blue-gray. I guess what they say is true; third time’s a charm! The journey was worth it, though, because I’m so in love with this glossy green in contrast with the […]
