I have an aversion to baskets. My mother took a basket-making class through our local Parks and Rec program when I was a child, and ever since then, wicker-and-wood has always struck me as dusty and dated. So when this simple, sculptural basket popped into my inbox, I immediately imagined all the things I've been meaning to stash away but never really had a place to: shoes, magazines, towels, the list goes on. Handmade in leather and with copper rivets, it's a modern storage solution that helps organize odds and ends – but still looks good doing it. Leather Strap Baskets, Small, $174; Large, $253; .
