Design Sleuth: The New Fruit Basket

Issue 53 · A Fresh Start · January 3, 2013

Noticed recently in the kitchen of Kinfolk editors Nathan and Katie Williams, a hanging fruit basket with a nautical edge.

Parting ways from the traditional 3-tier produce basket, Nathan and Katie, as Nathan explains, "bought the hanging scale from a local antique store in Lincoln City, fastened it to our ceiling with a circle hook and hung the metal basket for fruit and vegetables." We like the basket so much that we've sleuthed out similar materials to make one of our own.
