We recently redecorated our sunroom. I went with blue cushions on the furniture, and then I add a pop of color by changing the decor with the seasons. When I saw this nautical rope storage bin (RV $99) from The Grommet I knew that it would fit perfectly in the room. If you haven’t heard of The Grommet, you need to check them out! Their innovative products from local makers and small businesses are constantly changing.
The Grommet’s goal is to launch undiscovered products and help them succeed. We shine a light on great ideas and the people behind them and arm them with the tools that the big guys have. With each discovery, The Grommet tells the story behind the products, producing in-house editorial, video, and photography to help you better understand each one. – The Grommet
When the bin arrived, it came smushed all flat, so I had to spend some time making it round. This is harder than it sounds, as the rope is robust! Making it round is the important first step so that the round Maine-made wood bottom insert will fit in the bottom of the bin.

I LOVE IT! It looks awesome with the blue decor… it fits right in!
Five generations of expertise are woven into these nautical storage bins. The rope and the bins are handmade in Maine by local lobster fishers. Easy to care for, each bin is strong enough to withstand the ocean and elements, making it more than tough enough for storing blankets, stashing laundry, and other everyday uses. Make sure to check out the Nautical Rope Door Mats available at The Grommet too.
