A closer look at Somerton

These baskets are for those that want practical storage that’s still attractive enough to have on display –Somerton has a classic, woven texture that works in most spaces. The high-sided, rectangular shape of this one makes it one of the most versatile in the collection.

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

Even if you don’t have a console table, this long, thin and high-sided basket is still useful. Try sitting it inside a bookcase to tidy away anything you don’t want on show. Or, use it in a utility room or kitchen to keep bottles in check.

Just so you know

As durable as this basket is, it won’t be happy living outside.

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. It’s not keen on water, so if it does get wet just make sure you dry it well. And if you’re keeping it in the bathroom, give it a chance to dry out.

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.
