Braided Water Hyacinth Storage Cube with Handles is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from pretty, natural and functional I am enjoying my new cube. I use it to keep a few extra pillows up and out of the way. I live in a studio so everything, even most of the storage, is on full view; so was happy to find this size and shape container in a pretty natural material.

Community Q&A

Are the handles included in the height measurement of this storage basket. If not, how many inches do I need to add to the height?

Asked by: Jody617
No, the handles add approximately 4" to the basket. Sorry for the late response. Thank you for your question.

Does the overall height listed include the handles? If so, what is the height from the bottom of the basket to the top edge?

Asked by: Millsee0808
The basket is about 14.5 inches tall, without the handles. With the handles, it is about 18.5 inches tall. I say "about" because they are handmade.

Before & After Spaces

After undertaking a major remodeling project of her 1930's Spanish Mediterranean home in Santa Monica, Marla Sobel loved the light, bright, casual and graceful environment of her home. Despite the update of the space, however, Marla's office remained a sort of "catch all" for anything that didn't have a dedicated storage place in the home. An, "insane mess" as Marla called it; she was ready for a space where she could productively work from home - a place that was multifunctional, beautiful and consistent with the casual elegance of the rest of the house.
