DIY: Color-Blocked Wicker Poufs

Issue 78 · Heading South · June 27, 2013

On my recent trip to France I admired this stack of painted wicker poufs in the Parisian flat of Clarisse Demory. Getting the perfectly imperfect look is easy.

We first posted about dip-dying wicker poufs last year, and while we like the dip-dye trend, we're ready for something just a little different. I noticed these hand-painted wicker poufs in Clarisse Demory's Paris flat while visiting last month and couldn't help but admire that while they have a similar effect to dip-dye from afar, up close they are a little less clean lined—and I like that.

Above: Clarisse painted each piece with white paint and a paint brush (no dip dye required). The result is a wicker pouf that has less of a World Market look and more of an offhand chic vibe.
