Inventory Spotlight: Wicker & Rattan

Design inspo using our favorite - Wicker & Rattan


Before we get into our love for all things wicker and rattan -


NEW ITEM ALERT:


We just purchased our new beautiful Peacock Love Seat, and it will arrive on the island by May! We can’t wait to showcase this beautiful piece at your next event.


We all know and love the gorgeous boho pieces showing up in our living rooms and events across the world. But, let’s get one thing straight – wicker isn’t making a comeback, because it never went anywhere. This gorgeous style has been able to adapt to decor trends through the decades.  It suggests a vintage lifestyle, but also provides a fresh, tropical vibe. 





As you can tell, over here at Aloha Artisans, we are big fans of wicker and rattan. We think these timeless designs will be here for a long time. 





Though many people think the word “wicker” refers to the material, it really is the process of which materials are weaved - including rattan, bamboo and many more.

Wicker is the first order material of basketry. The first traces of basketry are found in Egypt and then in the Middle East. It’s difficult to define when the wicker first appeared because it’s a biodegradable material. However, it’s found in writings such as the Bible and the passage on Moses or in paintings over the centuries. Wicker comes in all shapes and sizes, but below are a few ways we have used them in our past events. Use this as an inspo for your next event, or your personal home design. 


LIGHTING


The great thing about lighting is how you can play with the quantity. Group fixtures together or hang one all alone; both methods make an impact. You can see the contrast in that sort of stylistic choice in these photos. 



With Rattan Lanterns, a little goes a long way. Looking to add just a bit of ambiance to your tent for your big day? I recommend adding a few of these cuties throughout your tent, wowing your guests and also adding a romantic, tropical vibe to your special day.


FURNITURE


Lounge Rentals are a must-have for your next event. Having a place for your friends and family to hang comfortably is so important. Grandma and Grandpa do not want to sit in their chair the entire evening. Give them some options! It also adds a cozy and tropical feel, which a lot of people crave for their outdoor event space. Also, these lounges give you the option to get those epic couples or bridal party photos. 





DECOR


Using wicker decor doesn’t mean you have to go ALL out.  Adding small wicker baskets or plant stands to your aisle way will add just the right touch of style.  A rattan bar cart can be dolled up to make a fun, mimosa bar. Let's get creative! 



We are in the business of creating custom experiences for our clients. Experiences/Events in which are designed to create a beautiful space for your loved ones and the most special people in your life to gather and enjoy these pieces.



With Covid-19 separating us from our loved ones, this time apart, will make your wedding or special event, that much more amazing. Getting your favorite people together will no longer be taken for granted. So when planning your big day, don’t feel like you are burdening your loved ones, know that you are in fact, sparking joy in their life and they are probably just as excited to be there for your special day. Because now it's not just about celebrating the love you share with your spouse, but a time to celebrate the simple things, like TOGETHERNESS and being near the ones we love most (especially after being separated from them for so long). So if you are daydreaming of creating that memorable space for your guests, look no further, we’ve got you covered!

Send us an email at alohaartisans@gmail.com and we are happy to chat, discuss upcoming details, or even talk story about how there isn’t enough toilet paper during this crazy time, we are here! Sending well wishes to you and your families.

XOXO
