People are excited about being able to sit on the patio or on the terrace and relaxing in an armchair. Most often, it’s a wicker armchair.
The term “wicker” is of Scandinavian origin and it defines a woven fabric formed onto a rigid material. It’s usually used for furniture and it’s often made from material of plant original. However, plastic fibers can also be used. Wicker furniture is very appreciated mostly because it’s lightweight and yet it’s very sturdy.
