Giant Storage Baskets with a Dose of Color

A set of brightly colored wire baskets has us asking ourselves: is there anything better than a giant catchall?

The baskets are by Gaurav Nanda of LA design studio, Bend Goods, the same studio responsible for one of our favorite wire chairs and a set of animal-friendly trophy heads. Nanda, a former car designer, and his team hand bend iron wire into each structure before the wire is sandblasted, primed in an anti-rust zinc formula, and finished with colorful powder coating.

Above: Each basket is available in a tall (18 by 10.5 inches) and wide size (22 by 6 inches). The Oversized Baskets are $250 each from A+R Store in LA; shown here in bright red.

Above: An added benefit of investing in a basket from Bend Goods is the knowledge that each piece is made in Los Angeles and its materials can be repeatedly recycled down.

Above: The lemon yellow Oversized Basket in a wide size fits nicely on open shelving in the kitchen.
