Wastepaper Baskets

An attractive wastepaper basket makes a big difference to your interior design in any room, elevating the overall impression of the space and adding another decorative accent. It is too easy to overlook the impact that can be made by such a humble object, so let us entice you with some beautiful high-quality decorative waste baskets for your home!

Whether you are looking to accessorize a living room, bedroom, bathroom, home office or library, we have some wonderful styles for you. Many of our designer trash cans are crafted by Chelsea House, the home accessories label of Jonathan Charles Fine Furniture. They often feature hand-painted scenes or images that become a work of art in the room. The designs are elegant and classic, often inspired by antique style home accessories from the 19th century or earlier. Materials include tole, a kind of decorated sheet metal that was popular in the 18th century. This creates a piece that is sturdy and has longevity in everyday use, but the metal is also the perfect material for the craftsmen to paint on. For example, sophisticated hand-painted wastebaskets featuring a charming bird perched on a leafy branch amidst luscious flowers. A prettily shaped edge adds a finishing touch while round ring handles make it easy to move and empty. The whole decorative delight stands on sweet brass-toned feet. This kind of attention to detail is typical of the Chelsea House collection as well as all the other wastepaper baskets in our online gallery. Perhaps you would like one crafted by Jonathan Charles as a reproduction of an 18th century Irish peat bucket? The distressed dark walnut and brass trim make this an exceptional choice for a gentleman’s library or for your Country style decor. 

Other designs feature brass lion head handles, pierced gallery trims, elegant floral patterns and Chinoiserie and noble coats of arms.
