French Country - Floor Baskets

The simplicity and functionality of baskets – be they woven or made from metal – is an enduring motif in French Country style. In pre-industrial France, woven rattan baskets were used in the fields for picking flowers or crops, used in the marketplace for carrying purchases home, and used in domestic spaces for laundry and other tasks. Today rattan baskets deliver rustic charm and a slice of life as it was in the past. The industrial revolution brought welcome advances to the farms and farmhouses of France, and commercially manufactured iron metal baskets and standing storage pieces became common sights in the kitchens and other working areas. Today, these standing, shelved baskets offer charm and distinct functionality in equal measure. Used for storage or display in the kitchen, bathroom or even bedroom, standing floor baskets recall the simple charms found in French farmhouses.
