Vintage and new baskets are the secret item leading designers use to give an interior a more layered, cultured, eclectic look.

They are the ultimate multifunctional piece, whether for practical or decorative use; a great basket is a great buy that you are guaranteed to use daily.

You can use them to stow everything from magazines to wood, blankets, towels, toys, loo paper, ferns, a citrus tree, whatever you fancy. You will spot them in all good interiors. This is where top designers source them.
