Big Storage Baskets

For me, 2014 is quickly becoming the year of the large basket. How have I never realized they’re perfect for just about everything? Use one to house an indoor tree’s ugly plastic planter, grab another to store rolled up blankets in the living room, and put yet another next to your bed filled with magazines and books. The possibilities are endless as are the options, take a look at 14 of our favorites below.

Anorak Trunks

 

I grew up with a large steamer trunk (my dad’s) for a toy box, later in life I owned a few super cheap versions for summer’s at camp. None looked anything like these, but Anorak’s steamer trunks make me happy. They’re canvas-coated, and the deer pattern could make a nice little home at the bottom of my bed for linen storage.
