-Our favourite lifestyle store in Palma-
Wicker and rattan baskets don’t just look lovely, they can store an astonishing array of everyday items making them beautifully essential storage units on super yachts. Moreover, the woven texture and light-airy look bring summer to mind and add flair to any area onboard. Our favourite lifestyle store, Rialto Living, boast what is probably the island’s largest collection of these practical and stylish containers. From baskets big enough to store a small whale to petite alternatives for pocket-sized items, like phones or jewellery, they’ve got you (and your onboard clutter) well covered. Here are a few examples of how these woven wonders can make for convenient storage solutions for all the things that make up our lives onboard.
The smaller sized versions are great for capturing things like lighters and earphones; the sort of items that don’t have a permanent place to live but seem to always roam around the boat instead. Bigger ones are great for books that normally fall on the floor when the boat takes a roll, or sunnies that are left outside, ready to be sat upon. A super organized stew, like you of course, will time and again be able to answer the question: “Have you found my cigarettes / earphones / hairclip?” with “Sure, I did, and placed them in the wicker tray.”
The extra large sized baskets are roomy enough to fit everyone’s shoes times two and make for a fresh and clean superyacht-style entrance. Other outdoor uses include perfectly arranged beach towels and a selection of sunscreens.
Rialto Living additionally stock clean white ceramics fitted with a wicker cover to give bathrooms the same fresh, summer-picnic kind of vibe. Furthermore, they stock hand-woven trays, ice buckets, water jugs, wine holders, place mats, tissue boxes and many more items, all made from the same top quality rattan.
Rialto Living, conveniently located on Calle Sant Feliu 3, is just a stone’s throw away from Palma’s STP and sells a wide selection of eye-catching super yacht must-haves. Have a snoop around and see for yourself. And if you make a purchase don’t forget to flash your STP (or other) entry card so you can relax in their leafy, oasis-like café and sip on a complimentary ‘cafe con leche’ before you head back to the boat.
