Trust the French to design a bright slip cover to adorn and protect their baguette baskets. In this sixteen-inch-long wicker trough, a loosely fitted liner of washable Provençal fabric makes a cozy resting place for bread, crackers, and other cheese-worthy accompaniments. (It’s been reported that Barbie dolls also like to recline there, so don’t be surprised if this pretty basket ends up in a toy room. Be safe: get two.)
Each basket is $24 from Minstral’s in Great Berrington, Massachusetts.
