The Scalloped Woven Lampshade High/Low

Green Seagrass Scalloped Lampshade

I saw this lampshade and was immediately smitten - green, scallops, seagrass - I think it would look great on one of my blue and white Chinese lamps.

Wicker for the Kitchen

Wicker Onion Baskets

I found some wicker for the kitchen or pantry that are so old school, attractive, and functional! These are traditional baskets designed for storing onions, but you could also use them for potatoes, apples and other fresh produce. The baskets are hand woven of sturdy rattan reeds, with an ear handle on one side that allows for hanging in the pantry.

For centuries, these wicker baskets have been commonly used for everyday life in Europe for food storage and as a better solution to prolong the shelf life of veggies the natural way. The breathable design allows air to pass keeping any moisture away promoting a longer shelf life. A highly sustainable elegant kitchen organizer.
