A splash of color combined with a natural weave creates a Color Block look for six baskets in the Dresden & Company Everyday collection — six baskets that are functional while also adding an artistic touch to your home.

The Color Block Collection is a new modern classic for D&Co. Creative Director Michael Kennedy says it follows the home décor trend we have all seen in fabrics, wallpapers, bed linens and pillows. There is no need to worry about whether it will fit in your decorating style. Michael points out how easy it is to add it to any room, fitting in with everything from highly patterned traditional rooms to the clean urban aesthetic.

To create this nice, fresh look, our talented designers and Basketmakers in our Workshop in Dresden, Ohio, flipped D&Co.’s traditional weaving style to add solid accents of color to go with the natural, clear-coated weave. Added detail went into framing the handles of the Cubby baskets and the Family Laundry. The resulting look for the entire collection is baskets that draw your eye to that pop of color.

D&Co. teased us with Color Block last summer with a Seaside Blue/Weathered White series and we fell in love hook, line and sinker.

Our Everyday Color Block line combines Natural with either Sandstone or Ash Gray. All three of our Cubby baskets as well as our Family Hamper, Family Waste and Family Laundry are available in this option. The Family Hamper and Family Waste are new to the Everyday line.

The Color Block collection provides a great way to freshen up your bathroom, especially a master bath, putting the Family Hamper, Family Waste and Family Laundry to work. 

You can use the Cubby Baskets in the bathroom as well, or for storage in your closet, the children’s room, a craft room or the mudroom.

While the Color Block creates a solid color scheme on the outside, you see the interesting pattern on the inside of the basket where color weave is used for upsplints. Think of it as another piece of art that you can look at when you are taking out the trash, gathering up the laundry or using the Family Laundry Basket to carry snacks to a long-awaited family gathering.

Like all of D&Co.’s baskets, these are designed to become a part of your home for years to come.
