Chunky Baskets and French Stripe Pillows

You know I have a bit of a 'thing' for chunky baskets.
Love them stacked in the corner of a room or set next to a chair with extra pillows or a blanket.
Even better when they are wearing the perfect patina 
and when they have the sweetest little wheels.

Something about baskets or bins on wheels just makes my knees a little weak.

Chunky, oversized goodness lined in a removable burlap liner and washed in that gorgeous chalky gray
It's a fantastic piece for next to the fireplace to hold firewood or beautiful birch logs
To set in the corner with blankets or atop an armoire 
 I am loving it holding these linen pillows in the guest cottage

These are huge and filled with squishy down inserts
Absolutely charming.

What is it about those stripes that just makes you love them?

These are part of a new collection that Soft Surroundings is offering.
It's called 'Retreat' and is filled with pieces that CEO Robin
hand selects and also with antiques that she brings back from France
The antiques are amazing~ gorgeous armoire's and cupboards, mirrors and settee's
and they also have reproduction furniture that I am seriously drooling over.
