Storing, not boring
Much too lovely for laundry, we first spied industrial-style canvas storage baskets displaying French baguette at an East Vancouver bakery. Next we discovered one in a photography studio bathroom in Toronto holding artfully arranged toilet paper rolls.
Now, we’ve found a local source in new-to-Vancouver design outpost Style Garage which stocks the original 1921 version. Sturdy enough for firewood, handy for kids toys, all we know the only place they won’t be hiding is the laundry room. —Sarah Bancroft
