If you didn't see the excitement on Instagram last month, I launched a new collaboration with Mainly Baskets Home in April! The Cape Collection, inspired by coastal towns on the northeast, features 17 different pieces that can fit wonderfully into any space. I've admired wicker for my entire life, so partnering with Mainly Baskets Home on this collection just made sense. There is just something about wicker that exudes the perfect amount of charm and simplicity with a balanced sense of elegance.
I've had the pleasure of working on collaborations in the past with the likes of Pottery Barn and Kings House Rugs. The Cape Collection is a customizable line: the wicker comes in many beautiful colors, as do the cushions which can be upholstered in several wonderful Sunbrella options upon ordering.
If you can believe it, the photoshoot for the collection took place in my living room here in Nashville! That certainly wasn't the original plan, but in times like these, we just have to pivot and work with the resources we have. We weighed whether or not to even launch the collaboration given the world's current circumstances, but decided to move forward, hoping it would serve as a much-needed inspiration and something to brighten darker days we all experienced in one way or another this spring due to COVID-19.
My hope and goals for this collection with MBH were to create timeless and comfortable wicker pieces at an accessible price point for my clients and anyone looking to add a little wicker wonder to their home. The best part? You can shop the collection directly on my site!
When developing the collection, I was inspired by classic wicker interior scenes I have long admired. Two of my design icons, Hubert Givenchy and Marella Agnelli, both had a love of wicker.
The Cape Collection features an array of wicker seating, tables and lamp bases. Here are a few of my favorite snaps from our photoshoot:
