From arty crafty baskets to sleek and slick metal vessels, these are officially the chicest laundry baskets money can buy.
While it could be seen as one of the most banal corners of your bedroom, or living space in general, a laundry basket plays home to your arsenal of clothes as they hop from wardrobe to washing machine and back again. So, really, isn’t it time to upgrade to a vessel as stylish as your clothes?
After all, we may not care for the act of laundry itself – who can really be bothered with the act of loading and unloading the washing machine? - but let’s show some respect to our clothes by allowing them to spend the interim period between washing in a home they (and you) are proud of.
