Bonus Bone: Carrie bike basket

Carrie bike basket, available at Design House Stockholm

While flipping through the current issue of Dwell, I spotted this fantastic bike basket designed by Marie-Louise Gustafsson. I love how girly it is, a nice alternative to the more masculine bike baskets. Gustafsson chose to use the fancy crocheted material because it reminded her of her Grandmother's tablecloths, which she used when she served tea. How utterly charming. To top it all off, the basket also doubles as a shopping bag! Another great 2-in-1!

For these reasons, I, Porcelain, declare this a Design Boner.

Beautiful - I would love to have this on my bike rather than wearing an ugly backpack jammed full of stuff...
