We are Keith and Charlotte, the husband and wife team behind The Log Basket - a family-run, product-driven and customer-friendly business. Wood is our passion: honest, simple and stylish.
Once upon a time, we were both art graduates with a keenness for design in all its forms.
In 2007 following successful careers in product design (Keith) and retail management/textile jewellery design (Charlotte), we made the journey from desk-bound to outward bound. We left our old lives behind us, moving our young family across the country to live within the beautiful ancient woodlands of the Royal Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire. What could be more lovely than experiencing the passing of the seasons, amongst the ever-changing and growing forest?
Our journey has been an eventful one. We began by establishing a boutique tipi campsite; we harvested trees from the forests that surrounded our home for our tipi pole supply. We were inundated with requests to supply poles elsewhere. Our ensuing thriving business provided us with many off-cuts that were simply lovely in their own right...far too lovely to burn! We had in our hands our original product: peeled, clean decorative logs. The Log Basket began trading with these dried logs for filling alcoves and displaying in empty fireplaces...and our range has evolved from there.
As market leaders and innovators in our field, we are very much design led. We have been overwhelmed by the incredible response to our Colour Mix decorative logs, launched by our company first in early 2014. We are continually monitoring interior design trends from season to season, ensuring that our palette ranges remain current and on-trend.
We are now the very happy and proud owners of a dynamic firm supplying original, modern rustic interior design products...for everyone to enjoy.
