Sash Cord Basket's by Doug Johnston

Posted on June 11, 2012 by Luis Valdizon

Doug Johnston is a prolific artist whose work Janaki has admired for quite some time. His products made their retail debut in Canada all the way from Brooklyn, New York, at our spring pop-up shop that sadly came to a close over the weekend. On a positive note, his beautiful handmade sash cord baskets will still be available to purchase in-store. The minimal use of colour and predominantly ceramic-like colourways he uses makes each basket unique and versatile to add to spaces. Their clean, minimal lines and soft texture give them a simple but graceful look. Doug uses a combination of high quality cotton braided cord and coloured seeing thread in his collection.

With the obvious exception of Janaki's ceramics, I don't think there's an item available for sale right now at Le Marché that better speaks to the heart of her unstudied, whimsical and brilliant aesthetic more than Mr. Johnston's works. In an era where original designer decor can often feel completely unoriginal, we are proud to offer you an item that will surely stand out in the crowd.
