Why choose cushions with welting?

Why choose cushions with welting?

If you were of nobility in the Middle Ages you would own a chair with welted cushion and it would have been exquisite.  In the Spanish Court, only the honored were permitted to sit in chairs that featured elaborately decorated cushions with welting.  And in France, the most privileged were permitted to kneel on a welted cushion behind the King in church.

We can definitely say that even to this day cushions with welting have not lost their function or their attraction.  Cushions today are accessories as well as a seating comfort.  Functionality, however, should not dictate the style of your pillow!  Dress it up with welting.

Wicker Furniture: Endless Possibilities

Wicker Furniture: Endless Possibilities
Posted by Laura Beth Hamm  in Design Ideas

Wicker furniture serves as a timeless addition to any space. Wicker furniture and accessories can be traced back to ancient Egyptian and Roman times, proving it to be a truly lasting option that has never gone out of style. Traditional wicker is a weave constructed of natural fibers found within the core of rattan, bamboo or cane stalks, and in some cases it is made of reed grass or long twigs. Newer versions of wicker furniture include resin or plastic fiber weaves that are perfect for uncovered outdoor areas that are exposed to the elements. If you are using natural wicker for your outdoor space, make sure it is protected from precipitation and sunlight by sheltering it with furniture covers or by treating it with a weather-proof seal.

Although we know wicker is timeless,  it is also undeniably perfect for entertaining! Because natural wicker is made from woven fibers, it is lightweight and can be easily moved around to accommodate guests in any location, whether inside or outside. While most wood furniture seating tends to be uncomfortable and stiff, wicker offers flexibility for exceptional relaxation. The woven fibers are better suited to conform to body weight which provides greater accommodation and fit for anyone.
