Just in case you didn't find a wastebasket to your liking in yesterday's post, here are a few more that are also worth a look. The one above is from the personal collection of artist Nela Dunato of Croatia and is NOT for sale - but it was so wonderful I wanted to share, anyway. [image used with permission of the artist]
These felted ones - in three sizes, and 38 colors! - come from Hey-Sign in Germany and can be bought here. And of course, these lovely items could be used for something other than a wastebasket!
And here's another fun wastebasket - or papierkorb - I found on a German site. Update on Nov. 21, 2011: I'm no longer finding this on the site where I first saw it, but I found it here.
Ideaco - based in Osaka, Japan - brings us the Tubelor, in two different sizes. As Emmo Home says: "Just place trashbags in the inner wastebascket and then cover it with the colorful tube on top, you will never have to worry about the appearance of ugly trashbags again!" You can also get the large and the small versions from MollaSpace. Both Emmo Home and MollaSpace are located in California. [via Apartment Therapy and Better Living Through Design]
And while this "reverse glass" wastebasket comes from Peru, it's another one that's sold in the U.S.
