Baskets & Consoles

July 16, 2012 at 7:53 AM 3 comments

Lets say, you just purchased the perfect console table, but it’s still feeling a little bare.  Well, one of the oldest and greatest tricks in the book is to place baskets underneath it.  Not only does it provide great storage, it also fills a visual space and finishes off the look.

Where to shop for baskets?

Pottery Barn is my go-to for a classic woven basket.  The beachcomber baskets are my personal favorites.

For a more travelled look, West Elm has great graphic baskets made by craftswomen in Thies, Senegal.

And if you’re looking for something with some patina and perhaps a little different in shape or look, ETSY is always a great spot to check.  Just type in “antique basket” and there will be 100’s to choose from.

    Beautiful images. Very smart to use baskets for extra storage.

    Lots of pin worthy images to be had here. Would LOVE to have a console with baskets at my place. It’s been too long since I visited — been on vacation. Can’t wait to catch up with all of your posts! Hope you are well, Kate!
