This Month’s Feature: Wickerworks

March marks the beginning of the spring season. Spring is a season for new beginnings, and reconnecting with nature. In your home, this can mean bringing elements of the outdoors, indoors. Either by opening your windows and allowing for fresh air, having a bouquet of colourful spring flowers, or by bringing design elements that use natural materials. The Wickerworks Collection does just that. Wickerworks invites nature into your home. The collection features range of hand-woven dining and lounge chairs made with all natural kubu rattan in a warm ashy tone.

The Wickerworks Collection is designed for any room in your home. It features chairs for your living room, bedroom, hallway, or dining room.

Some things you may not know about the collection:

Each piece in the collection is handmade. The rattan is bent and woven individually, while still freshly cut. This way the vines are malleable. Once set, they dry and the form hardens, creating the beautiful and unique designs that make up the collection. The natural coloration is achieved by submerging the raw cut canes/vines in rice paddies. It truly is a collection from nature.

Each chair's name is inspired by the traditional European Royal titles and ranks. The larger more prominent chairs are the rulers of the throne. These include the Wickerworks King, Queen, Knight and Bishop. These chairs will be noticed in your living spaces. The original collection of Wickerworks were named after the chess pieces. But as the collection grew, offering a wider range of chairs, we needed to find other suitable names. This led us to follow the traditional European Royal titles and ranks.

Wickerworks Lounge Chairs

The King Chair – Taking woven rattan chairs to a new level, the King chair boasts a majestic wingback form. The high back wraps round to cosset sitters while the arms are kept high and throne-like. In terms of comfort, we have made a feather-filled back pillow that complements the bouncier, firmer base. This is the ideal seat for whiling away the hours.

The Queen Chair – Sink down into the deep cushions of the Queen chair, and relax or read in style. The gently curving back and elevated arms offer extra comfort. The contrasting directional weaves of the rattan, hand woven from our naturally renewable palm, offer an interesting visual element. Sturdy wooden legs balance the look.

The Knight Chair – Sink into the Knight’s Chair. The low profile and wide stance of this hand-woven rattan chair, offer a comfort that is hard to beat. This chair is ideal for reading, relaxing and conversation.

The Marquis Chair – Like most of the Wickerworks collection, the feature that really makes the Marquis chair stand out from the rest is its weave. Being the only one to feature open diamond shaping, the only one that is almost throne-like, and the only one to go for double cushion comfort, the Marquis is a surefire statement wherever it is placed.

The Baron Chair – The wicker weave is tactile and comforting and brings us that bit closer to nature. It is typically used in rooms that are all about relaxing, think conservatories, bedroom corners or a contemporary living room. Take those notions and combine them with the high armed hug you get from a chair like the Baron. A more traditional silhouette with a slightly reclined back, it is an armchair that is all about comfort as well as craft.

Wickerworks Dining Chairs

The Bishop Chair – The unique rounded lines of the Bishop Chair, in hand woven rattan, provide not only a strong visual statement, but are designed with comfort in mind. The included cushion echoes the shape.

The Aristocrat Chair – This natural rattan dining chair is proof of just how good wicker can look in an interior dining space. Armless, the shape is pared-back to let the weave make the statement it was destined to say. It has a romanticism to its aesthetic and it is nothing short of sheer elegance.

The Morin Dining Chair – Sleek, elegant, and textured are words that jump to mind upon encountering the Morin dining chair. Hand woven rattan, wrapped around an undulating mahogany frame, is presented in contrasting directional weaves, creating visual interest with simplicity.

The Rook Dining Chair – This is the perfect chair for casual dining. Hand woven and extremely comfortable, you and your guests will not want to leave the table. Wonderfully compact, with an interesting texture that adds visual impact.

The Salsa Dining Chair – A casual yet chic dining chair realized in hand woven rattan encasing a solid mahogany curved frame. The dark natural tones contrast elegantly with the included seat cushion. Tie backs smartly keep the cushion in place but simultaneously add detail.

Wickerworks Accent & Side Chairs

The Squire Chair – Inspired by the iconic film director’s chair, the Squire works a slightly scooped seat and concave back with open-air panels that make for noteworthy design. Tightly wound and woven rattan form the seat and back over thicker canes that give it structure.

The Monarch Chair – This cove-backed armchair works wonders in smaller spaces. Its shape is more nipped-in and its overall stance is more discreet than other pieces within the Wickerworks collection, which is what makes it so perfect as a bedroom dressing chair. We love the contrast between the tightly-bound weave and the open diamond-structure of its centre section.

The Baroness Chair – Rattan furniture has an easy appeal to it. The wicker weave is tactile and comforting and brings us that bit closer to nature, and it is typically used in rooms that are all about relaxing, think conservatories, bedroom corners or a contemporary living room. Take those notions and combine them with the high armed hug you get from a chair like the Baroness. A more traditional silhouette with a fanned back, it has a slightly slimmer frame than the Baron chair and the arms come a few inches higher too to make it even more comfy and cosy.

The Bonsun Chair – This is a wicker take on the classic club chair that invites you to take a seat and curl up, thanks to roomy proportions, a deep cushion and arms designed for comfort. Style yes, but substance too, it is all about the natural materials as the kubu rattan’s ashy tone is left untouched and the cushion is stitched from 100% cotton. Like the club chair, it works best in pairs.

The Countess Chair – The Countess chair showcases strong yet swooping lines that bring a softness to the entire piece. Let us start with the arcs that swing down from its arms to the base. Then there is the intersecting bow at the front and back. But the part that is perhaps most defining is the wraparound piece of natural rattan that forms the arms and back support to create a welcoming and comfortable seat.

The Duchess Chair – This woven rattan chair is a bit of a go-anywhere piece and will work just as well as an office chair, a dressing chair, a dining chair or simply just an accent piece in any room. It’s all thanks to its slim profile and light lines that ensure it will never be obtrusive nor appear heavy on the eye.

The Duke Chair – This woven rattan chair is a bit of a go-anywhere piece and will work just as well as an office chair, a dressing chair, a dining chair or simply just an accent piece in any room. It’s all thanks to its slim profile and light lines that ensure it will never be obtrusive nor appear heavy on the eye.

The Jester Chair – It is all about the weave of the Jester chair. The natural rattan is worked into mini arrow heads that come together to create a kind-of herringbone arrangement on the seat and open back. Surrounding it are thicker canes that bend and bow to form striking arms that slope downwards.
