Wicker Storage Trunks

Traditional style wicker storage trunks have proved their worth over the years as a practical and attractive means of storing away stuff you’re not going to use that often. Today they’re as popular as ever – partly for practical reasons but also because they are so stylish. The hallway is a particularly popular location too since the larger options can also double as a lightweight bench seat.

These baskets, from the Croft Collection at John Lewis, have all the hallmarks of a traditional wicker trunk, including hinged lids and leather fastening straps, yet the use of woven willow adds a touch of modern aesthetic. Willow is a very popular option for woven basket ware these days, not just because it looks much nicer than some more traditional options but because it is very sustainable.
