When most people think about purchasing quality wicker furniture, they usually do so for selfish reasons. And who can blame them? After all, it is some of the most sturdily built, dependable, comfortable, and enviable furniture in the world. Crafted from the finest wood materials such as rattan, and woven into a pliably comfortable work of art, they make great showpieces and sources for rest and relaxation. But before you think that personal enjoyment is the only option, consider these unlikely alternative uses: Salvation Army Pickup
Give away as a housewarming or wedding gift. What young couple doesn’t get excited about unique furniture? Starting a new life together, whether through marriage or moving, is always a time of stress and excitement, and your generosity will give the couple something to look forward to once all the boxes are finally unpacked and life can begin (or re-begin) again.
Start your own local business. Most major furniture retailers only dabble in the quality wicker furniture market. They know very little of the material and craftsmanship involved and can’t even begin to speak intelligently to you about antique wicker furniture, if that’s what you’re after. There is a wealth of opportunity available to the sales-friendly businessman, who wants to be known for something in his local market. Starting your own quality wicker furniture business allows you to take control of your financial future, and to do so selling a product people want that pretty much sells itself.
Choose it in the decor of your office or church. What church or work place couldn’t use a little personality to remind the members or employees that life is worth slowing down for and enjoying every once and a while. Attitudes can get so serious when attending a house of worship or logging a full 8-hour workday. It’s important to stay on the right path by having a place where you can go and unwind. This is the type of furniture that allows people to do so.
Donate to charity for the tax credit. Charity donations are a win-win for everyone. Someone gets something they can use, but can’t necessarily afford; you get a little bit knocked off what you owe the government; and you feel good about yourself for brightening someone else’s day. How can you go wrong?
Use it for your own special place. No one is saying you have to go all out if you do choose quality wicker furniture for your home. It may be as simple as a single wicker chair. But somewhere in your home, there is a place where you like to go to leave behind the stress and fears of the world. When you go there, wicker makes it easier to appreciate where you are.
