This basket is having a moment for sure, but I think it's becoming a classic for beach house decor and beyond. I am thinking of getting one myself.
It can be used for anything you choose and never looks more chic to me than under a console table.
Use it for beach towels, media components, books, laundry, toys, blankets, shoes, pillows, in a mud room, dog toys - the list is endless. It is wonderful to add an organic and textural element to a spot. I love the way it pairs with Chinoiserie and with blue and white. Here are interior designers going mad over this "it" basket.
BTW, it looks like the Beachcomber from Pottery Barn. Other versions I have seen all look to me like cheap knockoffs.

A follower just emailed me that some of the baskets are from Mainly Baskets Home and are slightly different from the PB. They both come in various shapes and sizes.
