Celebrating African Craftsmanship: Creative Ways to Use African Baskets in Home and Wall Decor

Posted by Leisel Sandler on

African baskets are not just functional; they are also incredibly beautiful, each one a work of art that reflects the spirit and traditions of its origins. At Eya Home Living, we believe in the versatility of African baskets and their power to transform spaces. Let's explore some creative ways you can incorporate these exquisite pieces into your home and wall decor.

Wall Decor:
An increasingly popular trend in interior design is the use of African baskets as wall decor. Creating a wall display of baskets not only fills empty spaces but also adds texture, colour, and personality to your room. Mix different sizes, shapes, and designs to make your display visually compelling. Whether it's a single large basket or a carefully arranged collection, African baskets add a unique and engaging element to your walls.

Storage Solutions:
Why opt for mundane storage when you can use aesthetically pleasing African baskets? They make excellent storage solutions while keeping your home stylish. Use them in the living room to hold magazines, in the bathroom for towels, or in the bedroom for extra pillows. They're a perfect way to keep your space tidy while adding a touch of African charm.

Plant Holders:
Bring an earthy touch to your indoor plants by using African baskets as plant holders. They offer a stylish, eco-friendly alternative to plastic pots and bring a sense of warmth and nature into your home. Remember to use a saucer or inner pot to protect the basket from moisture.

Table Centerpieces:
A well-chosen African basket can make an eye-catching table centrepiece. Fill it with fruit, decorative balls, or even flowers to create a focal point. It's a simple and effective way to introduce African aesthetics to your dining or coffee table.

At Eya Home Living, we offer a wide range of authentic African baskets, each handcrafted with passion and care. We invite you to explore the different styles, including the colourful Buhera baskets, the intricate Binga baskets and the sturdy Malawi baskets from Southern Africa.

Remember, by incorporating African baskets into your decor, you're not only beautifying your space, but also supporting the skilled artisans and preserving traditional African crafts.
