Apartment Therapy just ran a list of 10 best wastebaskets - some with "more excitement." While many of them are very nice, and some of them are certainly unusual, they missed the following interesting options.
1. Steamship Funnel Wastebasket
Let's start with the most unusual wastebasket I've ever seen. I'm sure it's the perfect product for someone.
2. Grapevine Wastebasket
This one is made of bent wood and painted by a New England artist. Update on Dec. 27, 2010: This one doesn't seem to be available any more.
3. Handmade Paper Waste Basket
This beauty comes from Papers and Petals by Kay; most of her products are things like journals, wedding memory books, wedding albums, and keepsake boxes. Update on Dec. 27, 2010: I can no longer find this one, either.
4. Jacquard Waste Basket
Brocade Home offers this fabric wastebasket with a cotton lining; it's also available in blue. Update on October 19, 2008: This wastebasket doesn't seem to be available any more.
5. Marye-Kelley Decoupage Wastepaper Baskets
With 215 options to choose from, you can probably find at least one wastebasket here that you'd like!
6. Talavera Wastebasket from Mexico
You can find more Talavera ceramic options at Tierra y Fuego, Direct from Mexico, and many other places.
