InterDesign Formbu Bamboo Wastebasket : so I should have read the description better.

Looks pretty but the bottom doesn’t have any drainage, so mold builds up within a day or two in a somewhat humid environment.

Bought this for soaps beside our new jacuzzi, looks great, very pretty.

Nice looking but smaller than expected. Good for a very small basket.

Good for the bathroom, it fits a small trash bag.

So lovely i bought a second one – wish there was a slightly larger size though.

Much smaller than it should be.

I like its compact style – i use it in a 1/2 bath – and i like the coloring of bamboo. I did not give it 5 stars because, unfortunately, bamboo is not, in my experiences with bamboo products, a very hardy material. The first one had to be replaced due to damage in shipping, a separation of one side at the top and cracks on two adjoining sides at the bottom. I live alone and it will not be subject to any harsh treatment so i can indulge in my bamboo preference.

This lightweight container is so attractive that, in the past, i put it on my kitchen counter to hold misc. Items for easy access, such as cleaners. I would have given it 5 stars except that this time it arrived damaged with dents/tears on most surfaces. It still serves it’s function & returning it would be such a hassle. Instead, i will repurpose it to another less visible spot.

  • Just what I needed
  • Would have given it 5 stars except that it arrived damaged.
  • Can’t miss for the price.

It arrived with a dented bottom corner, and it’s not bamboo- its mdf veneer, bamboo colored, so i should have read the description better.

Using this for some model paints i have.

I actually bought it to put on my counter as a makeup tray. I have my perfumes and a couple mason jars that hold my makeup, and another tiny jaw that holds my jewelry. It’s a great way to keep everything organized while also looking pretty. It’s got really smooth surfaces and nothing is scratchy, no raw edges. It looks really nice for the price you pay on amazon. I would get another one when i move and get a new place with a bigger bathroom.

Looks nice, packaged well, and has held up well since we’ve had it.

Nice looking and small for small bathrooms. It’s nit made of real bamboo, which is nice because it can easily be washed out.

Such great quality and the size is perfect for our small bathroom. I highly recommend this product if you like bamboo products.

Sleek design with smooth edges. Doesn’t take up a lot of space, easy to clean, exactly as pictured. It’s a nice a$$ garbage bin.

I didn’t read through the description that it is compact. It is not that big, but good size for waste near your desk. Great quality and looks nice.

Smaller than i thought but still really cute for a bathroom trash receptacle. Looks just like the picture. I’ve had two of these bins for almost 6 months now with zero problems.

Ordered 2 of them & happy with the size, shape & color. A little pricey, but overall we’re satisfied.

Nice looking and sturdy wastebasket. A bit smaller than i hoped and easy to tip over by accident. It would be be better with a weighted base.

These trays are stylish and very nice looking almost like fine furniture. I’ve seen trays that were 10 times the price that didn’t look as good as these. The size is right and the price is right.

I purchased this for our kitchen sink; i put a soap dispenser and a scrub brush in it because i didn’t want these sitting on the counter because i have kids and i wanted to avoid soap and sitting water on the granite. Glad i purchased it; it looks really nice and has worked well.

Very sturdy, attractive, and fits perfectly in between our rv toilet and the wall. Highly recommended but measure first.

Looks fantastic in our living room. Big scratch down back side makes it 4 stars instead of 5.

I love bamboo products, and you will find many examples around my house. In this case, i like the color and shape, but several of the glued joints are open. In fact, i find that open glue joints are increasingly common in the bamboo products i order. They are all chinese made, and clearly quality control is a problem.

After installing a new black leathered granite countertop in the master bath, i realized i needed to clean up my act. Just storing the shaving cream, mouthwash, etc. On the counter wasn’t going to cut it anymore. I made room for most of the items in the medicine cabinet. Now just the soap dispenser, after shave and beard oil live on the tray. I also bought the matching tissue box, and a classic diner mug holds the comb, small brush and scissors. It looks very spiffy now, simple and elegant. The wood tone looks good with the black granite. I used a little guardsman clean & polish for wood furniture – cream polish 16 oz – silicone free, uv protection – 461500 on both the tray and tissue cover, and the bamboo looked even better.

It is only a piece of furniture but, good quality nice looking and fits as described so fits the space we wanted it for.

It’s very beautiful and neat. There was a little hit on one corner and the on other side the two pieces are almost disconnected as shown in the picture.

Nice finish, light and easy to pickup, little soft feet on bottom so doesn’t scratch flooring.

Really solidly built, simplistic design and even looks nice. Love the fact that i could get it used with amazon prime and save a bit of money.

Fits perfectly in a small apartment bathroom.

Fits perfect beside the toilet.

This is the most eye-pleasing way of hiding the cat litter scooper while still having quick access to it. A little bigger than necessary but it’s the best i could find. I kind of wish it were heavier on the bottom for stability but it’s ok.
