Overview

Baskets are available in all shapes and sizes, and in a wide variety of materials; they can be fashioned according to the whim of the maker. When it comes to displaying them, however, it's the pleasure of the collector to determine how to best show them off.

The dual functions of baskets - as storage units and as decoration - are beautifully melded here. Starting with the purely practical, Decorating with Baskets provides information on uses expected and unexpected, ingenious ways to stack, under-table storage, tips on repairing old baskets, Shaker baskets, unusual bike and picnic baskets, wire baskets, and Adirondack baskets. Decorating is given equal weight, with displays highlighted: whether hung on a wall, like a picture, framing a cherished memento, stacked in graduating sizes next to a cozy hearth, or turned into ingenious lampshades, baskets are shown as works of art.

Whether the reader wants to decorate with one basket or display a prized collection, here are the ideas and photos that will spark a new look, indoors or out.

Country Living, the monthly magazine that captures the country lifestyle, brings a country approach to a wide range of topics including decorating, building and restoring old homes, cooking, entertaining, gardening, and travel. Country Living is responsible for originating and popularizing the whole premise of the "country" lifestyle that has emerged as a major trend over the past two decades. It has a circulation of nearly two million readers.
