Wicker furniture...

...for wee ones. 

I saw this little wicker love seat a while ago in one of my favorite antique storesIn a quiet moment several days later, I thought the babies would have so much fun with that.  

Recently, we were back in that neck of the woods and I decided that if the little wicker love seat still happened to be there, we should get it for the babies. And when I say 'we' I mean myself and my other self who supports such ideas. 

The love seat was indeed still there but as I looked more closely, I saw that there was also a matching rocking chair and table to go with it. 

So the little love seat ended up becoming a set.  

After setting up the tiny wicker furniture on our porch, we showed it to the babies. Margaret immediately began re-arranging everything, which made me laugh. And Graham, well he glanced at it for a half second, and then he was off and running (with Mike at his heels).

  1. What a lovely post! I grew up with that identical (I may find a picture!) little "loveseat" and it influenced my taste to this day!

    I have been a professional decorator (I was also rearranging furniture at 4)! for 42 years!

    What a wonderful story! Encourage that little girl to keep going! It is a wonderful and happy career!

  2. Just lovely.
    I was just looking at some wicker bedheads on a website for $400 and remembered that I had one as a child back in the 70's, should have hung on to it.

  6. Oh, this story is so sweet. I am so glad 'we' went back and bought it for the wee ones. How funny and sweet that 'M' started rearranging the set up and 'G' went running with his dad!!! Thanks for sharing.

  7. When my husband and I bought our first house back in '93, we bought white wicker furniture for our guest room as the price was right! Some of the pieces ended up in my daughter's room, and now those pieces have been retired. Seeing this post brings back memories, though!

  9. What a precious wicker set! I have had a love affair with wicker since an early age... even hauled an antique wicker rocker off to college with me. Now my back porch is filled with it, and goodness knows how many times it has been spraypainted. Your daughter will love it!

  17. Awww...this brings back memories. My girls had a little wicker set when they were younger. Many tea parties were held with that set and their dolls. I cannot believe how much Margaret has grown. I love the pigtails.

  21. I love wicker for children. My young son had the same reaction to pint sized furniture as your Graham--too busy to bother!

  23. Oh, my! Margaret is such a pretty, little lady! Love the new furniture and I'm sure Graham will discover how wonderful it is to sit and enjoy them - for a moment or two before he's off again!

  42. These are such a nice and lovely piece of wicker furniture, the furniture has a little resemblance with the old ancient and shabby chic furniture, which are the most famous one in the furniture market. Thanks.
