High/Low: Black Woven Baskets, Goop Versus Target

CB2 Goop Basket Cases

In honor of Halloween, we’ve decided to do a very special holiday edition of The Organized Home: a high/low story about black baskets. It’s a trend we’ve noticed of late, popping up in indie stores and mass-market retailers alike. (Some of are favorite examples are from Restoration Hardware, Schoolhouse, and HomeStories.) While researching this story, we came across, of course, the black baskets by Goop for CB2 that came out just last month. But more important, we also stumbled upon a Target knockoff that costs hundreds less. Take a look, and let us know which one you would buy.
