Let's Talk Modern Wicker...

| March 13, 2019
Every spring you get excited about the warm weather and outdoor activities. You think "This year, we'll switch out our cushions, get a new rocker, and plant that vegetable garden!" And then...time gets away and before you know it the summer is over! Sound familiar?

We've been there too! Big plans...without a plan on how to tackle them! Let 2019 be your year for summer bliss! It's never too early to start planning and we're here to help!

First stop: WICKER!

We're big believers in lounging out in the sun, family dinners on the patio, and rocking on the front porch with a good book (sweet tea in hand of course!) Every year, we take pride in helping families find the perfect outdoor furniture that will bring them together on those perfect summer evenings.

Choosing your wicker though can be an overwhelming task! What pieces do you need? What colors do you like? This style or that style? Cushions...pillows...the list goes on. At Carolina Pottery we offer a variety of wicker options and we're here to break down our more MODERN styles for you!

We carry several modern wicker varieties for you to choose from. For those of you who like clean lines, simple designs, straight edges, and soft muted tones, our modern wicker styles will be right up your alley!

Below is the breakdown of all our modern wicker collections but, before we dive in...

  • Custom Cushions: Yes, you pick the fabric and get a pattern you love! Come into a store to check out our swatches in person. Fabrics can be upgraded as well!
