I'm Obsessing.

This week's "Dream Home" featured a large basket in a corner, that I loved. I am crazy about these baskets! Most I have seen are usually French antiques. I would love to find one for myself, they're so fabulous. The picture below, shows two baskets used by Nate Berkus. I have seen him use this detail on other occasions, and it looks great. I especially like how he places them underneath this beautiful rustic table.



Here are a few examples from 1st dibs, that I really like.
1. (Set of 3): 19th Century French Wool Baskets from Holmes Samsel Antiques.
2. Large 19th century American Wool gathering basket from Scott Estepp Gallery.
3. The last basket is a little different. It is a new piece made of wire. Its not the same look exactly, but I think it has the same feel. It is from Jefferson West Antiques.

I know what you mean about how great a big basket is. I have a big charcoal gray felt one that is usually overflowing with magazines and books. Nothing better than a good basket!
