Tote and Basket Storage Solutions

Thursday, January 19th, 2017

It’s easy to keep every room in your home organized when you utilize baskets or totes, and for a charming country feel, they are almost always the answer. The key to using baskets as a storage solution is to review their contents every month or so. This will keep you from using them as catch-alls, and could help you rid of unnecessary or unused items from your home.


We love benches that allow space for baskets and small totes. This utilizes every inch of the bench’s footprint, and creates a stylish look in an entryway, mudroom or even a bedroom. Store shoes, hats and gloves, scarves and accessories, or seasonal home accents in stylish woven baskets under a bench.

On the Walls

If you are looking to incorporate a DIY project into your storage solution, look to a blank wall in a mudroom or hallway and build shelves to accommodate collectibles, books or storage baskets. Mixing and matching the function of each shelf – a basket here and there, a sculpture here and a book over there – will make the wall even more interesting to look at.

Food Storage

Baskets can be just as handy in the kitchen. With open shelving, a basket can add a textured look to flat walls and counter tops, and can hide away food items that may clash with glass storage jars or decorative dishware.

Laundry Help

Using large baskets as laundry baskets or hampers is pretty common, but smaller baskets are great for storing lost socks, linens and other laundered items in a laundry room. We recommend adding a pretty linen insert when using real wicker or woven baskets.

Under the Bed

Finally, update your under-the-bed storage with flat baskets or totes. You will be utilizing this often forgotten space while adding a warm, rustic accent to your bedroom.

Wednesday Spotlight: Decor Storage

Wednesday, November 25th, 2015

Boot & Storage BenchAfter the turkey is cleared and the final days of November have passed, winter and Christmas decorating takes over (if it hasn’t already in your home)! One of the best ways to avoid a decorating headache is preparation, which includes packing your decoratives neatly so when they come back out next year you don’t have to spend a majority of your time untangling, searching and sorting. Start with your harvest décor now; today we’re spotlighting five different home storage options – from accessories to furniture –  for organizing and keeping seasonal accents out of the way, and being ready to pull them out next year.

Black Hyacinth Cocktail Storage TrunkBench and Trunk Storage

We offer a variety of storage bench options that fit your lifestyle and space, and our Boot & Storage Bench is one of our favorites. A piece from our Rustic Country Collection, this bench is handcrafted in the USA and is available in a variety of colors. Store seasonal accessories like mittens, hats and shoes, or keep your décor out of the way and covered. The bench seat is roomy enough to sit on, and will fit your favorite pillows and seasonal accents. Storage Trunks are also stylish options, and can function as a coffee table or an extra surface at the foot of your bed. The roomy, enclosed trunk space is perfect for seasonal throws and pillows, as well as larger décor and accents.

Vintage Storage Holder

Apothecary Stand in BlackOdds and Ends

For ribbon, craft supplies and other small items, our Vintage Storage Holder is perfect for keeping on a desk or counter – an organizer’s dream! Store these items neatly and within reach so you’re not scrambling for supplies at the last minute, and with the glass panel lid you can keep better track of what you have and what you need so holiday and special occasion preparation will be virtually seamless.

Simple Solutions

When in doubt, think of drawers! A simple furniture piece with deep or wide drawers can provide adequate space for almost anything you want to keep stored. Our Apothecary Stand is an ideal example of this; its simple yet traditional design is crafted from sturdy pine that will last through many seasons and keep your accents safely tucked away.

Braided Baskets

A classic braided look in basket form; whether you have their rug complements, these baskets are great for keeping seasonal pillows and other larger accents inside, as well as holding those knitted projects you’re working on as gifts. The possibilities are nearly endless, and with the convenient handles you can move them throughout your home to better suit your storage and style needs.
