Want a dose of farmhouse chic or bohemian living in your home? It’s as simple as adding a basket. Whether it’s made of rattan, seagrass, fabric or wire, baskets add a bit of history and warmth to a space. I’ve pulled together a small list of favorites but there are plenty more for sale on Apartment Therapy Marketplace. Let me know how you’re using these baskets and more in your decor.

How pretty is this bamboo basket? The charming cherry blossom design is hand-painted. Purchased from a southern estate sale, the seller estimates the vintage accessory to be from the 1930s. Use it as a catch-all for mail in the foyer or as a planter in your kitchen window. Available on Apartment Therapy Marketplace, $27.

I’m not quite sure how useful this vintage collapsible fisherman’s basket is in everyday life. However I love the wire mesh look of it and think it could make for a unique light fixture. This basket does include a clamp to attach to the side of your boat or cupboard!) and an original removable chain with hooks to hang fish. Available on Apartment Therapy Marketplace, $50.

I have a weakness for big belly baskets. This woven seagrass option caught my eye because of the sewn Indigo-dyed linen fabric trim around rim. I’m thisclose to adding it to my collection, the roomy basket offers plenty of storage for throws and blankets in the living room. Stitched, pressed, and shipped from Durham, North Carolina. Available on Apartment Therapy Marketplace, $50.

All good things come in threes! For example, this set of three vintage nesting baskets, trimmed in red, yellow and blue. Hang them on a hook via the handle or display these on a shelf. Available on Apartment Therapy Marketplace, $21.
