How to Decorate with Vintage Baskets

I love decorating with baskets. There is something so wonderful about the texture they add to a room. Plus, how practical are they? Not only do they add great style, but they add function as well! And though I have many different baskets in my home, I have to say, that antique baskets are the ones that really speak to me!

First of all, they are usually adorable and often have details that you never find on a basket today. And they have a ton of character and age that you simply can’t reproduce. I’ve settled for the new ones, and even decent reproductions here and there. But the antique ones are the ones that make my heart skip a beat! Especially anything with a buckle, strap, or lock detail…..

I have one antique trunk-style basket and I’m desperately looking for another for the bottom shelf of my console table. I did order a cute basket from Pottery Barn, and I will say, it’s a pretty good one. However, it wasn’t the right size for where I need it so I ended up returning it. And the truth is, I’d really rather find an antique one anyway!

So the hunt continues…..

  4. They are hard to find here too Des, especially if I don't want to pay an arm and a leg. I have better luck at the flea markets though, the antique stores they are just too expensive. I'm on the hunt!


  5. I am drooling over these! My husband thinks I have a problem as I have never seen a basket I don't like. He just might be right! Ha!
