I can't remember where I found this image, but I absolutely love this look; of course it wouldn't exactly go in my elephant-filled apartment but it is a fabulous idea nonetheless. When it comes to my own home, I tend to gravitate towards colorful and ethnic pieces and these baskets are both.

What a great way to welcome guests in an entry hall at farm or ranch ... along with a bench or a couple of chairs covered in my favorite new fabric:
