My Mum has plans for a wood burner in the lounge. She doesn’t yet have one but she does have a wicker log basket! 🙂 The lovely Kesha over at The Wicker Company kindly offered me the opportunity to review something from her online wicker shop and when I saw the Log Basket I knew my mum would love it.
As I said, there are no signs of a wood burner being fitted quite yet but now my dad has seen this lovely Dark Oak Wicker Log Basket in the house I’m sure he’ll make sure it gets fitted even quicker than originally planned! 🙂
The log basket is made from organic wicker in a dark oak colour. It actually appears lighter on their shop photo than in real life (or at least on my screen it does). In reality it is a rich, glossy warm deep oak colour and it looks amazing! My mum loves it! She was over the moon when Kesha said she could have it for review.
The hand-woven log carrier is very sturdy and extremely well made. It will be perfect for my Mum to use to carry the logs into the lounge from outside. It is £24.99 and UK postage is £4.99 on orders of £49.99 and under or free on orders of £50+. My Mum thinks it is well worth the money as she thinks it will look wonderful sitting next to her woodburner…when she gets it!
Please note the logs in the photo have been ‘borrowed’ from my brother for the purpose of the photo. He already has his gorgeous woodburner in his lounge! I told Mum today that she had better return the logs but she informed me that she is going to keep them…. Just for display purposes of course! 😀 I’m sure my brother won’t realise he’s a few logs down…well, not until he reads this!
The log basket measures L46cm x W29cm x H28cm (H39cm with handle). It is a generous size but not too big that it can’t be comfortably carried.
It is also available in a Natural colour and the Natural Wicker Log Basket is the same price.
My Mum highly recommends this log basket to you and she thinks it will look really homely sitting in your fireplace next to your log fire.
The Wicker Company don’t just sell log baskets – they actually sell all sorts of wicker products for the home. They are specialists in White Wicker and as you can see from collage photo above they stock a wide variety of different white wicker products – from picnic baskets to bicycle shopping baskets.
I love the look of white wicker and I think it looks especially beautiful when used in the bathroom. So the laundry basket and storage baskets are my personal favourites.
If you are more a fan of Natural Coloured Wicker then you won’t be disappointed with their site as they have loads of natural wicker products for you to choose from! There are rocking chairs, chest of drawers, fruit bowls and even pet baskets. You can see a selection in the collage photo below:-
You can rest assured that when you order from The Wicker Company you will get great customer service and the product will arrive well packaged so it gets to you safely. It has been a pleasure to feature this company on my blog and I urge you to stop by their site and have a browse of all the lovely things they sell.
If you could spare a moment please pop over and follow them on twitter and Like them on facebook. You can also find them on Pinterest and Google+.
They are a fairly new company but I can see them getting very popular in no time at all! You can read all about their company over on their website.
Christmas is on its way so now is the time to start ordering those special gifts for the people you care about. If you know someone that has an open fire in their home but doesn’t yet have a log basket – instead the logs are just stacked next to the fire – then this wicker log carrier would be an ideal gift for them. 🙂
Thanks for reading my review and a big Thank You to Kesha for making my Mum’s day by sending the log basket to her.
