With a French Country heritage, the Laurel basket is designed to be as ruggedly useful as it is attractive. Flared angular sides and a high-arching scalloped rim give it a bold presence as a multipurpose storage container or as a planter. Side handles are wrapped for added strength and to provide leverage for lifting. The square shape can hold a variety of nursery pots for medium-height greenery or vines. For baths or guest areas, it can also stash towels and other amenities. In living areas, the rustic design lends itself to a change with the seasons when filled with decorative items. Designed to complement cottage or lodge decor, this European-inspired basket is just as appealing incorporated into modern settings.
