How to Use Woven Furniture in a Contemporary Way

Weaving the Way

From interior design to fashion, woven materials are having a moment this spring and we are totally on board! This beautiful trend graces practically every style category, so whether your vibe is boho, traditional, or minimalist, there’s a way to incorporate a little natural texture in your life.  When Summer Classics shared their latest Peninsula Collection with us, we jumped at the chance to use their pieces in one of our favorite contemporary homes! Scroll on to read how to use woven pieces in a fresh way.

Leave a Lasting Impression

If you’re opting for a woven piece of furniture, make sure it’s crafted of high-quality materials that can stand up to daily wear and tear. Outdoor pieces made of resin wicker will age gracefully, holding up well against the elements.

If you’re just dipping your toe in the woven pond, consider accessorizing with pieces that have a looser, more organic structure. Some of our favorite woven accessories are statement lighting, baskets used as planters, or ottomans, many of which can also be incorporated indoors!

Check Your Lines

Open-weave pieces feel light and fresh, showcasing form. We recommend opting for furnishings that have a sleek, modern silhouette, letting the details take center stage.

Work with Your Architecture

When choosing the perfect furnishings, we always consider the look and feel of the space. This contemporary home has a calm color palette and clean lines, which is juxtaposed by furnishings with texture and warmth.

Planning a get-together in your outdoor space? Adding a flat-weave rug and floor pillows is a quick way to make a contemporary space feel inviting.

Accent & Accessorize

Complete the look with accessories that celebrate nature! We went with an eclectic palm print pillow and brought in accent pillows weaved of organic materials like linen and leather.

Sleek side tables and garden stools provide a friendly place to rest a drink or snack, and an easy breezy caftan doesn’t hurt either!
