I was looking around for a laundry basket the other day. We have a stylish thing in black & white at home, with good handles that’s roomy inside. It has now become a bit flimsy & worn so it’s about time to trade up. Rattan wasn’t top of mind & probably not the type of material I generally would look for, although a chair or chairs,would suit me fine. I’ve always liked rattan in the summer, in the garden.
My mother in law had period when she painted baskets in a typical blue colour from her childhood. She then decorated them in a white pattern that became her signum. I had these baskets everywhere, in the kitchen, in the bathroom, garage, playroom & the backyard. I was quite tired of the blue colour & rattan, for quite a while to come, after that. Natural materials are nice in general & rattan has the advantage to age neat & becomes more beautiful with time. I am hereby healed from past experience & ready for this beautiful material … colorless, white, black or with some color of some sort.
Take care / Marie
