Laundry baskets - which can of course be used for much more than just laundry - may be most familiar in the basic plastic versions. But if you'd like something more stylish, you've got lots of options.
UnHampered is a plastic laundry basket with a difference: It's collapsible. However, it's not for sale yet - it needs a minimum number of people committing to buy it before it goes into production. [via Julie Bestry] Update on Sept. 14, 2016: The Unhampered laundry basket evolved from this original design, and the revised version did get made. However, it's currently hard to find; it may well have been discontinued. However, I still see it here.
This polypropylene basket from Germany, called 2HANDS, has more design flair then most plastic baskets. It comes in six different colors. [via Apartment Therapy]
Don't want plastic at all? You could always go for this laundry basket sold by Shaker Workshops.
And finally, another very different option is this laundry trug, "handmade from recycled rice bags and produced in a fairtrade project in Cambodia."
