I am posting this photo to warn people about why they should not own a Wicker living room. First, let’s assume that everything is cyclical, even home decoration. If so, than we are really overdue for wicker to make a comeback.
While wicker can be attractive and it a breeze to rearrange, it has its downsides. If you have kids, they will wreck the stuff. Between the jumping and constant picking, it just won’t hold up.
Plus, and I think this is most important, wicker is noisy. Sitting on it or lay down on it and you will hear the wicker rubbing against each other. It makes it difficult to take a couch nap or enjoy a quiet conversation.
So please just enjoy this photo of wicker and if you decide to give it a whirl, don’t say you weren’t warned.
