Cool and Functional Laundry Baskets

After both of our flights were cancelled, leaving us stranded in Florida for a few extra days (woe is us!), we’ve come back to New York with a vacation glow – and an obscene amount of laundry. In the spirit of “fresh” starts, we’ve rounded a few snazzy laundry baskets that almost make doing the wash exciting.

In recent years the laundry basket has transformed from a bulky, plastic eyesore into a highly visible, and occasionally high-end accessory in bathrooms and bedrooms. With thousands of baskets on the market, we’ve found several containers that you can happily sit in the corner of any room.
