Storage: Rustic Woven Basket Roundup

Issue 35 · Marrakesh Color · August 30, 2010

We've been fans of rustic rush-plaited baskets for a while now (see Walls, Windows & Floors: Rush Matters in Bedfordshire), a hearthside staple in English country houses. Until recently, they were hard to come by (and expensive), so we were pleased to notice several new sources for the baskets recently.

Double Handle Storage Baskets at Remodelista
