Designer Marie-Louise Gustafsson used her grandmother’s crocheted tablecloths as inspiration for this whimsical plastic bike basket. Need to pop into a shop for some essentials? No problem: It conveniently detaches from handlebars, and a black canvas strap makes for easy carrying.
These oversize baskets, made of extra-thick hand-woven rattan, are perfect for corralling umbrellas in the foyer or storing stacks of extra towels in the bathroom or guest room.
