A closer look at Somerton

Somerton is for those of us that like our storage to be as attractive as it is practical – it’s made from durable rattan and has a classic look that works especially well in spaces you want to give a country feel too. This one is the perfect size to fit under the Buckland bench – though that’s by no means its only use.

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

The high sides on this basket means there’s lots of space inside, but it’s not so large that you can’t use it inside a wardrobe or laundry cupboard. It’s also good if you want to keep a few extra blankets close by but not taking up space on the sofa.

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.
