What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bring in antique baskets for added textural interest. This is a great option if country style isn't your thing, but you still want to utilize authentic wood elements in some way. Something this large can be hung up high, or propped on the floor against the wall for that casual layered look.
Local farmers would collect oak and cut it into splits, then sell it to the tobacco basket factories for extra income. The factory workers soaked the wood in hot water to make the strips of wood pliable, then wove them into shape and secured them with small nails. The factories in Yadkin County, North Carolina, produced thousands of baskets per year, which were shipped to the places where tobacco was grown and sent to market.
