Baskets are both pretty and practical. They add texture and warmth to every type of décor, and provide chic storage to help keep spaces tidy!

Local interior designer, and self-proclaimed basket addict Jessica Moore Williams, of Moore Design, was eager to share a new way she is using baskets in her projects.

“My latest clever use for a basket is to find one with a lid and openings for handles on either side,” she said. “Snake the power cords for your electronics (phone, laptop, etc.) with the wall plug through one handle and the device plug through the opposite handle, with the messy cords hidden in the basket. Place the basket near an outlet, and then set your electronics on the basket lid to plug in and charge. Voila, a charging station.
