The latest trend in baskets? Vertical shapes and all kinds of new materials, like cloth and metal. Jennifer Litwin, author of Furniture Hot Spots, found us the perfect bin for every room:
Aiko oval baskets from pier1.com; $15-$25. “I love the shape and versatility-great for storing the remote, pens and pads, and DVDs,” says Litwin.
Abaca 3-drawer storage chest from costplus.com; $50. It looks nice enough to be displayed, and the drawers slide open and closed easily.
Canvas stacking baskets from containerstore.com; $15-$18. “The cloth lightens the look of baskets you usually find in kitchens,” Litwin says.
Ito magazine rack from pier1.com; $35. “The metal weave gives this basket an updated look, and the vertical shape fits in tight spaces,” she says.
Sabrina baskets, available in several colors, potterybarnkids.com; 2 for $44. Good for the “little stuff,” as well as bigger toys as kids grow.
