These are too cute. I have a wire storage unit that has 20 14X14 cubbys on one wall that is practical but I thought baskets would finish it out better. I bought 4 sets & came back and reordered 2 more. These are more like trunks (they all have a hinged top and the tops are nicely finished) than baskets and are cute. I was going to brag on the workmanship til I picked one up by the top & it separated from the woven part (it went back together ok but careful handling). The insides of the baskets have the same weave and would snag delicate fabrics. All in all, I am thrilled with this purchase.The Inner Dimensions (ID) are quite a bit smaller, especially on the medium & small which are totally inaccurately reported (both are 2' shorter than posting) The large looks smaller than I visualized but is fairly accurate as reported. The Xlarge is a bit bigger than posted.Xlrge: 14 inches wide x 20 inches long x 14 inches high (ID 11.5 x18x12)Large: 11 inches wide x 17 inches long x 11 inches high (ID 9 x14.5 x10)Medium: 14.5 inches wide x 8.25 inches long x 9 inches high (ID 12 x6 x7.5)Small: 11.25 inches wide x 5.5 inch long x 7 inches high (ID 9.5 x4 x5.5)
I am very pleased with the baskets and intend to order more today. I found a perfect place for the first four and now I need more. They have endless possiblities! They are very nicely constructed and a great color. You cannot go wrong with these and thanks again Overstock for a great buy and cheap shipping....I spend no gas or energy and get exactly waht I want!
I bought these to store some stray items in my living room. The smallest one is a great size for remote controls, but not big enough for much more than that. They serve their purpose, but you have to handle them with care. If you're looking at them for toys or anything heavy, I think you would be better off with something sturdier. Oh! I agree with a previous reviewer, who said to avoid putting any delicate fabrics in them. Not a good idea!
I use these for Everything! They are Perfect. With having the Oak Rims I've stacked the largest two, and it looks Beautiful in my Family Room. (My cats think I bought these for them too :) Oh! I'm sorry for marking "Ease of Assembly" because there isn't any assembly needed!! My daughter Loves these too. I'm buying her a set for Christmas. I keep some of my Quilts in my largest Basket, she's going to do the same--but also use it as an ottoman or lamp stand for the other side of her couch. The idea's are endless! Thanks Overstock!
This is the second set of willow baskets that I have purchased and am considering buying one or two more sets. They are very handy for holding all the bits and pieces that I have all over the house. I find them useful for magazines, office items, pantry overflow and everything else that I can think of. I can use them separately or as tiers. They have tiny feet on the bottom so air can flow under them if you have them on the floor. The oak rims add to both the appearance and makes them sturdier. I use the two larger ones as a tier table next to my wicker armchairs, There is a ribbon that holds the baskets open and so far they are holding but it would be simple to replace them if necessary. The sides have finger holes so they are easy to pick up and move. The wicker is kind of rough in places (inside of lids and on bottoms) but so far nothing has unravelled. I would suggest being careful if planning to put delicate fabrics in the baskets. All in all they are very nice and userful for the money.
I now have three sets of these baskets because they come in so handy in every room of the house! I conceal hot tub supplies in a big one (near the back door -- not outside), stash coupons in a small one, keep bills in another one, and my son hides a lot of paperbacks in one in his room. They manage to look nice while letting you keep clutter out of sight. I recommend them highly for storage of odds and ends.
They are very pretty to look but if one is short of storage space it is not a good buy. However one can place them in a room and make it look decorative placing them one over the other. The ribbon that supports the lid is flimsy and breaks off. One has to be careful when handling for there are a few wood pieces that might stick out. Overall it is a good buy.
Love em... Just as advertised... I have them stacked on top of each other to store knic knacs. I've ordered from Overstock about 5 times, from these baskets to framed Monet prints, to a queen size metal canopy bed... Satisfied everytime. Love the O!
I am probably goin to gt another set I have all my computer stuff and mp3 players and such in one stack and all my jewlery an accessories in another. Love them. I searched for anything that would be comparable and found nothing. Love O

I needed a place to store my knitting supplies. I have a puppy that loves to play with my yarn (when I am not home). So, I needed something with a lid. I found these willow baskets and was surprised to find out that they were nicer that I expected. The lid is substantial, and the boxes are a good size. They are a little rough inside, so, I put a garbage bag inside so that the yarn doesn't get caught. I have them stacked up next to the couch. I love them!
These baskets are sooooo cute and functional. I love the wood trim. I use them to hold blankets and pillows in my living room. The two smaller ones are in my daughter's room and she uses them to hold her stuffed animals. The quality is excellent and the price can't be beat. So beautiful, so functional, so perfect.
These baskets are wonderful. Amazing quality for the price. They are very nice and sturdy. The hinged tops are an excellent bonus. This set would cost at least 2 or 3 times as much anywhere else. It is an amazing value for what you get. I am considering purchasing another set.
