Most people generally think of wicker furniture as perfect for a sunroom or an outdoor arbor, but Mary Whitesides' new ultimate book of wicker beautifully illustrates this varied material's breadth of decorating possibilities. Wicker covers many types and uses, from Victorian style with twisted rosettes and cabriole legs, to Arts and Crafts wicker of the '20s, '30s, and '40s, to Art Deco style, to contemporary. It can be combined with a wide array of furniture styles to create a look that can be casual or formal, vintage or modern. With 140 gorgeous full-color photographs of furniture and settings, you will see how versatile and beautiful wicker can be. Wicker also includes information on what to look for in buying vintage wicker, how to care for and maintain wicker, and a complete resource directory of national and international companies where you can purchase wicker.< BR>
