How great does that sweet little turquoise basket look among the peacock chair and Turkish rug in my corner that I set up just for this shot? I’m going to miss this dude, he’s come to have a personality. His lid is so expressive.
This beautifully handmade African basket originates from Senegal. I was told that this was handmade by the seller’s own tribe near Mali. He brings baskets to the US from Africa via air carrier and sells them on the street at the Culver City Farmer’s Market here in Los Angeles.
I love the contrast of the bright and lively turquoise against the organic texture of the grass basket.
Perfect for toy storage, a small contained diaper pail or for layering under a console table in your entry or living room. I styled this guy alongside another basket and my peacock chair, mixing in just a couple other global elements for that New Bohemian style.
