5 NEW pieces guaranteed to turn 2020 around, whatever your style

As the nights draw in and we enter the final stretch of 2020, I'm determined more than ever to finish this rather strange, unforgettable year on a high.

If this time of year makes me think of one word, it's: cosy

Chilly evenings wrapped in soft wool blankets, mulled drinks wafting their cinnamon scents through the air and twinkling lights in every direction. 

To me, cosiness is enchanting. It's warming and comforting, and the perfect excuse to bring new decor additions into the home.

I'm always looking to expand our range of basket storage, gifts and home craft DIY kits here at La Basketry, but, due to this uncertain year, I've been unable to bring out the capsule collection I wanted to until now.

For the past 4 years, I have been collaborating with the same group of artisans in Senegal and I'm super excited to unveil FIVE new items, just in time for gifting season!

How will you make this year better? Whatever your personality type, you'll find something here:

The decorator: The Woven Vase

Handmade with dried grasses and coloured strings, this hourglass-shaped Woven Vase will bring a subtle pop of colour to any space.

It's versatile too, a great fit for utensils in the kitchen, for stationery in the (home) office, or as a beautiful addition to your bar or table centrepiece.

Top tip: fill with bunches of eucalyptus and holly for a festive feel!

I get it. It's colder, darker, and bed just feels all the more snuggly-er, right? Make breakfast in bed even better with our monochrome Serving Tray named Safi.

And when you finally peel yourself out of the covers? Safi works beautifully as a display tray on a dining or coffee table, too.

The one vowing to get more organised: The Trinket Dish

Every year I tell myself I'll get a little more organised, and for the most part, I manage. Thankfully, this practical Trinket Dish makes keeping those little bits and bobs together simple and stylish, so I don't have to spend half an hour looking under the sofa. 

With a choice of black or white, your precious jewellery, wandering hair pins and anything else will be right where you left them, sitting pretty.
