Have you ever been to Nantucket? The place can be a bit of a trip (you're 16 and wearing an ascot?) but we really liked all the creative uses of rope that are all over the place. Rope bracelets? Yes, please! And in small doses, we think it can add a nice touch for your home, too.
When separated from anything else with a nautical theme, rope takes on a more earthy look, thanks to the natural fibers that it's made from. Take, for instance, these accent tables from Pottery Barn. We have a low bed and think they might look nice as night stands, or as extra seating around a coffee table. Thoughts?
