Basket furniture is one of the least expensive and most practical ways to organize things around your home. This is another one of those fun topics that has given me an opportunity to search for interesting items. It was a little difficult choosing the best images, because there’s such a wide variety of items and styles. In addition to the furniture and shelving shown here, there are sewing and knitting baskets, magazine baskets, wicker kitchen cabinet drawers and organizers, simple laundry baskets and basket trays, nesting/stacking baskets, and on and on. You can add baskets to an old dresser or cabinet with broken drawers. Wicker furniture is made from lots of different materials. Sea grass, willow, rattan, vetiver grass, cane, reed and bamboo are popular. Other local materials such as cattails, corn husks, straw, yucca, hemp and sisal are also used. Basket furniture would make a fun hobby the whole family would enjoy. Or you could buy the baskets or trade work since the cost is so low.
