Wicker is made from woven fiber that is then formed into a study material. Wicker has been used to make furniture and decorative items since ancient Egypt. It was popular among the Pharaohs and upper society of the ancient Egyptians. It made its way through the centuries to ancient Rome and to Medieval England. It was later imported into America during colonial times. Wicker has always been equated with class and style.

Wicker was traditionally made from natural materials such as reeds and indigenous plants. Currently, natural wicker is still available, though much more expensive than the newer synthetic wicker. Synthetic wicker is made from strands of synthetic material and is very sturdy. Wicker, natural or synthetic will last forever with very little maintenance, and is often used for patio and deck furniture.

Faux topiaries and bushes are becoming quite popular in the design world. Artificial topiary balls can be placed at an entrance or in an empty corner and they look classy without being overbearing. The faux boxwood balls look fantastic in a wicker vase, or pot.
