SIMPLY SUMMER

Nothing shouts summer like the texture of rattan, wicker, seagrass or for that matter natural wovens of any kind. Whatever that object may be, a straw hat, a rattan chair, a woven tote or a wicker chaise - it is always fresh, crisp and ever so graphically textural. These things forever evoke memories of long summer days and sultry summer nights. I hope you all are planning to spend a long, languid weekend  at the beach, on the lake or wasting the day away in a hammock on a mountain porch sipping a summery cocktail in a warm breeze for this 4th of July weekend!

  3. And this post is timely again... Nothing better that sitting on the porch in a wicker chair... I used to do that a lot as a child at my grandparents'.
