Small accents

The last couple of months have been full of designing, creating and refining as we get ready to launch our newest offering of storage items this spring.
One focus has been on using new materials for some of our handle options.
Small accents can really make a difference in a piece such as storage.
Take a look to see what we've been up to.

This soft and simple cotton rope from Knot & Rope Supply is a perfect accent for those nautical / coastal inspired products.

For something with a bit more contrast and some serious texture, I found this manila rope. Manila is a form of hemp, so it takes on that real natural feel.
I love how this simple change makes such a difference in these baskets on a kid-friendly shelf. The natural tones and texture provides a nice balance to the bright colors and white accents on the shelf.
