Linen and Beech Laundry Basket

Linen and Beech Laundry Basket

It's been a while since we've seen such an attractive laundry basket, and we liked it for a couple of reasons: a) the triangle shape makes better use of a bedroom corner and b) we were getting tired of woven baskets and never liked the purely utilitarian metal-and-canvas ones.

Sold by UK retailer Nigel's Eco Store for £54.99, the basket holds an (English) load and half of laundry, which we may hazard a guess is smaller than an American load (can anyone back that up?). The site actually advocates burying the basket in the yard when its usefulness in your home has come to an end.
