Lynn Spence at Wicker Emporium

I recently was invited to, and attended an event hosted by Wicker Emporium, at their Heartland location in Mississauga, called “Inside Out:, bringing the indoors out with Wicker Emporium".  The guest speaker was the delightful and humorous Lynn Spence, seen regularly on Cityline.  Lynn presented several tablescapes capturing an elegance in the dining and entertaining experience.

Being that Mother Nature is trying her best to bring about spring and summer I wanted to see what Lynn would do at this event and I really wanted to meet and talk with her.  She is just like on TV and so gracious and so talented.  

Wicker Emporium has several locations and fantastic products and pricing.  I have shopped there for myself and for clients and an thrilled with everything that has been purchased. Wicker Emporium is a family owned business which originated in Halifax and has moved west and will continue to grow.  I have met the owners and they really do care about product and customer satisfaction.   If you are reading this and have not visited a Wicker Emporium showroom, you must!!  They carry many pieces, not all wicker and have exotic woods like teak, acacia and rosewood to name a few.   They have everything, including some wicker and a fairly large selection of ready made drapes, cushions, throws, lamps, area rugs, accessories and the list goes on and on....

I am incredibly supportive of this company and write a monthly post on their recently created Blog -  check it out.

Lynn created several tablescapes to create different moods as seen below and then some indoor vignettes as well.  There were three dining table settings and one game table set up.  Which is your favourite??


The table setting below was my favourite, however I would be 
happy with any of them.  Using the aqua accents gives it a 
'beachy, hamptons' look, using a teak table and a mixture of 
chairs and a bench

The second tablescape was a little more casual, perhaps a nice
brunch, done in bright and happy colours of orange & yellow

The third dining setting was a driftwood table with more of the soft
blues as well as two larger head chairs made comfy with the addition
of throws for a cool evening.

For a little fun, Lynn created a 'game table' setting using a round, 
pedestal Mango wood table and Acacia wood stools.

Lynn also took us around the showroom highlighting some of
the wonderful vignettes she created.  This cozy area below beckons
one to take a little time and read a good book

   A lovely piece that would make a wonderful island in any kitchen

          Yours truly with Lynn Spence
