Obsessed: Dipped Rattan Baskets

Posted by

A chic alternative to a sloppy hamper.
Laundry Basket, $99

These chic dipped baskets from West Elm have a wonderful airy quality that's perfect for summer. Artisans in the Philippines dip the strands of rattan into white paint by hand and then weave them into shape, giving the baskets a wonderful dip-dye effect. I love that the shapes are so versatile that they could be put to multiple uses throughout your home. The small waste bin basket would make a beautiful home for a large potted plant and the square storage basket would be an attractive way to hide errant kids' or pets' toys. Check them out at West Elm.
