Do you remember back in the 80s the popularity of basket parties? My mother would invite over a bunch of girlfriends, and they would purchase bread baskets that would line our kitchen walls. While they were well crafted, the style was pretty country kitsch. Now the basket trend has returned but in a new and sophisticated way that celebrates the beauty of global design and bold graphics.

I think the fun of decorating with baskets is exploring the amazing variety. Whether your focused is on color or graphic design, you can choose baskets from countries like Rwanda, Ghana or Zambia to start your own one-of-a-kind collection.

Baskets like those from the Macy’s Rwanda Path To Peace project help to support the artisans who craft these handmade works of art. The baskets make a gorgeous addition over a dining room buffet or mantel.

    I would definitely suggest creating this wallscape with a collection of baskets that you love. The Rwanda baskets are a great place to start. They are well-made and come in a number of colorways.

    Oh, my. Whenever I see something like this I think, "Fine for someone else but I am not dusting all of that." Between allergies and asthma, which a lot of people have, could you come up with ideas that are pretty and varied, not flat and not dusty?

    Baskets as wall decor were popular in the late 70's and the 80's.

    You say these things are trends, but from where? It seems like you are trying to make trends. Why not create some new ones? Baskets and watercolor prints are probably big with your editors only.

    I had a HOME basket party business in the 1970's . It's 40 years later and I am still hanging baskets .
    New trend I don't think so.

    Anyone know where the wall baskets on Design Star's last challenge were purchased? Thought it was West Elm, but don't see them there. Will truly appreciate your help.

    You're so awesome! I don't believe I've read anything like this before. So nice to discover someone with some unique thoughts on this topic. Seriously.. many thanks for starting this up. This web site is one thing that is required on the web, someone with a little originality! http://lagaleriedepaddy.com/goldads/cat/wall-art-

  9. I have been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never
    found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty
    worth enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made
    good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever
    before.
