A closer look at Somerton

As attractive as it is practical, this log basket has a classic look that works in any space, but especially one that you want to give a more rustic feel to. Of our two log baskets, the round one won’t sit as neatly into a corner, and needs a little more space, but looks best sat at the corner of your fireplace.

Materials

Somerton’s made from kubu – a type of natural rattan that’s strong, smooth and sustainable. It has a grey-brown colour that’s subtle and fits easily into any interior. Because it’s a natural material, this colour will vary within each piece, giving them even more texture.

In the making

It’s not always possible to make things by hand, but when it comes to basket-weaving, that’s really the only way to do it. It means that, even though our baskets are fairly uniform in shape and size, they do vary slightly, giving them much more character than if a machine made them.

Design is in the detail

The handles in this basket are woven in as a sturdy part of the structure, so you can pick it up without worrying. And so it sits neatly wherever you place it, with as few wobbles as possible, we’ve made the bottom as flat as we can.

In use

Not just for logs, the shape of this basket means you could also use it for disguising the bottom of your Christmas tree, as a generously-sized laundry basket, or for storing shoes in a hallway.

Taking care of Somerton

Somerton couldn’t be easier to keep clean – all you need to do is wipe it down with a dry e-cloth if it gets dusty or spilt on. And if you’re keeping it in the bathroom, give it a chance to dry out and ensure your space is well-ventilated. The only other thing to say is that you should avoid any harsh chemicals or cleaning products, as these could damage the material.

When it comes to smaller items, we don't hang around.

With smaller designs we tend to use one of three couriers; the three that we think are the best. It means that we can get your order out to you sooner. You’ll receive an email from our delivery partner to confirm your delivery date within 24 hours of us dispatching the item (or items).

No-quibble returns

We believe that returns should be easy, that’s why we approach them with a ‘no quibble’ mindset. We offer a free returns service on accessories and all the details on what you need to do will be on your delivery note. Just make sure you keep hold of the packaging.
