I like all things woven, caned or rushed at any time of year. But one of my summer favourites has to be the looser weave you notice in accessories and furniture. Something about an imperfectly woven chair or lamp hints at a kind of relaxed decorating vibe that works in both cottages and on your back deck. And the big retailers must know that lots of folks feel the same since many new products have this look. It's a kind of vintage, cottagey, friendly woven look that invites you to sit, drink some lemonade and light an evening candle at dusk — which I think feels more summery than sleek and modern outdoor furniture. Sure, I am talking personal style here, but don't you think these new old-look woven products feel like summer? I do.
