Stylish Storage: Baskets

Woven Basket with Leather Handles, Beverly Farms Project

The days of magazine racks, toy boxes, bread boxes, and laundry hampers, all of these separate containers for our 'stuff', may be behind us. At least with style in mind, we hope. More than just catch-alls, baskets are changing the handmade game and will definitely be a top styling trend of 2017. They beg the home owner to be minimal, collected, and stylish. We've styled them in offices and living rooms, as seen in our Beverly Farms and North End projects. And we've handpicked a few styles for every space in your home below!

Hesby, Pixel Basket


We get it, you want to make your home as comfy as possible. But sometimes that just isn't functional. A throw blanket on every piece of furniture might be a little overwhelming for guests. Place these Serena & Lily baskets next to the couch so that grabbing a blanket is a choice and keeping the shared spaces in your home tidy is a chore you want to do.

For neutral lovers, inviting color into the home isn't something to fear. Instead, it's an invitation for fun. These Corfu baskets from Pigeon & Poodle, which you can find at our lifestyle boutique SYD+SAM, are the perfect pop of color to help bring a room together. Place them in the playroom to keep the kids toys at bay (and keep cleaning fun!).


For the entryway..

Hesby, Vanilla Dipped Basket

For the kitchen..

MUES, Cotton & Jute Basket


Move over wire baskets. Wicker and cotton are coming to the kitchen. These tiny handmade baskets are perfect for separating fruits and veggies in the kitchen. Scandinavian inspired and subtle, the best thing about these smaller storage cotton & jute baskets are their multipurpose use. That goes for storage baskets of any size, really. Whether they're holding a fig leaf tree by the entryway or fresh linen in the guest bath, they're a well worth style investment and trend to keep your eye on in 2017.
