Mainly Baskets Home, has partnered with interior designer Sarah Bartholomew to launch a collection of home furnishings, set to debut at next month’s Atlanta Market. The Cape Collection by Sarah Bartholomew for Mainly Baskets Home will offer classic, thoughtfully designed pieces, from dining tables and chairs to bottle lamps and planters.
“The Cape Collection is inspired by coastal towns in the Northeast. Each product would fit magnificently in a summer home on Cape Cod... but if you're like me and live somewhere that's a little more landlocked, this collection can help bring the feeling of breezy, easy summers in the Northeast home to you.
“Two of my design icons, Hubert Givenchy and Marella Agnelli, both had a love of wicker, and initially, the inspiration for the collection was influenced by the classic vintage pieces I have long loved. Tear sheets from Givenchy’s Vaulted Atelier at Le Jonchet, the Pool House at Le Clos Fiorentina, as well as Marella Agnelli’s many rooms filled with wonderful wicker silhouettes, have been front and center on my inspiration board for years.
“The braid motif that runs through the collection was inspired by those iconic rooms, as well as a beautiful vintage collection of wicker chairs and sofas owned by one of my best friends that I have long admired.”
The Cape Collection by Sarah Bartholomew for Mainly Baskets Home includes more than 15 pieces of furniture and home accessories. Each piece in the collection is a seamless blend of Bartholomew’s classic, signature style and Mainly Baskets Home’s beloved take on hand-woven furniture. The Cape Collection features classic dining chairs with and without arms, a dining table, a vintage-woven chair, lounge chairs, a lounge sofa, a chaise, an hourglass side table, rectangular and round coffee tables, round and square ottomans, a foot stool, two lamp styles and more.
“Sarah Bartholomew has been a longtime design client of Mainly Baskets Home, and I strongly admire her style and work,” says Robyn Bailey, Owner of Mainly Baskets Home. “I am so excited for us to join forces in a larger capacity to introduce a product line that is timeless and representative of both of our styles.”
