The Best Rope Baskets for Your Home + Weekend Picks

Spring, Interiors, Home Blog Posts, Fashion, Fave PicksAnneke McConnell

Thank you so much for your awesome response to my last post on the new Bookshelf Styling Class by my friend Heather!  You are in for a treat because she is a trained teacher AND designer.  If you haven't signed up yet, do it now before the price goes up March 1st!  See the details HERE.


Onto today's topic of baskets!


Beautiful rope baskets (well, baskets in general) are one thing that are a versatile MUST in any home.  They corral toys, blankets, and can act as a container for plants like one of my fave, the fiddle fig leaf.

Now, if there are two things I really love to do, it's research things to death (nerd alert!) and bring it all together in one place.  When it comes to finding the most unique rope baskets, my first suggestion would be to go to  ETSY and search "rope baskets".  You will find beautiful handmade pieces and be supporting a small business owner, often for a more affordable price to you! Win win!

Here are a few of my favorites I found:

As for other rope baskets around the internet, there are many, but below are my favorites for a coastal casual style.  I found Joss and Main to have the same items as other retailers but generally for about $20 less.  It's a free membership site, but I've heard many say they don't want to join sites like this. Trust me, they are worth it and have tremendous savings on their flash sales!

Other sites that I found to be the best were Wayfair, Amazon, Nordstrom, and Target.  

By FAR, I think my favorite rope basket is this one by Colonial Mills. You can find it in a variety of places, but Wayfair has it available in 10 different color combinations!

Large Striped Rope Basket for Storage

This rope basket is similar, but a little more expensive. I love the two tone look though and it comes in 4 color combinations.

Turquoise and White Striped Rope Basket for Storage


Here is a cute one on a smaller scale (with other size and color options), that's affordable and perfect for putting magazines, books or plants in.  Sometimes a smaller size is needed for things like match box cars and such. ;-)

Small Two Tone Knit Basket for Storage


What do you think? Are you a storage basket loving person like myself? What do you use them for? I'd love to hear more in the comments!


Also, as we head into the weekend, there are so many new items arriving for Spring! Here are a few things that have caught my eye lately.  The pretty Spring sandals are my favorite!

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to enjoy the view!
