It’s officially summer (yay!) and with the sun finally out, the warm balmy evenings, and barbecues being lit up and down the country, I feel myself getting that holiday feeling. Which is why I’m so happy that woven pieces, finishes and motifs are taking over the high street right now, as this chic trend instantly makes me think of long lunches on a Mediterranean beach or candle lit dinners in rustic Italy. But woven isn’t just for outside living, it works wonderfully inside too!
Take your dinner party alfresco and hang woven lanterns to illuminate your outside space. These are from Habitat, as well as the colourful, woven food covers, which all create a feeling of holiday style dining.
These fabulous Lyra dining chairs from Made.com have been designed with lazy summer evenings in mind. The seats of the chairs have been woven with poly-rattan for extra comfort meaning they can happily sit outside when not being used to entertain guests.
Beautiful and storage are two words I love to hear together and Rigby & Mac have hit the nail on the head with these stunning woven baskets. Sold as a set of 3, use as a stylish laundry basket, a home for magazines and books or even housing your summer shoe collection.
How fabulous is this statement woven lamp from Ikea? With its simple frame, it allows lots of light to flood out creating the most wonderful shapes over the dinner table. Anyone else thinking if turned upside down it would make a great fruit basket?!
