Always wanted an industrial freight container-inspired piece of furniture in your home? Look no further, let me introduce you to Container DS by Kuno Nüssli. You can even stack a few or outfit them with legs and wheels. No matter the spin, it’s great design.
Danish designer Louise Campbell’s latest work is modest and amazing: a trio of simple white bone china jars held together with pastel rubber bands. (Each jar comes with six so you can color-code your little heart out!) The storage containers are made by ceramics house Kähler.
“If your eyes like it, your heart will love it,” says the designer of these rice and feed bags, who employs disabled and disadvantaged villagers in Cambodia to handcraft each colorful piece. Available in laundry bags and wastebasket versions.
I, for one, love them. The cause is just one more reason to buy one. Or ten.
A few weeks ago I cleaned out my closet and everything is organized. It’s a small walk-in (as in walk in, stand, do a 180º and you’re out) and I’m having shoe storage issues. There is none. I’ve already been relegated to storing out of season shoes elsewhere. My ‘Winter Collection’ consists of around twenty pairs which are currently haphazardly strewn about the floor of the closet. I’m the sort of person who won’t wear something unless it’s right in front of me and I can see it, which leaves out buying a big plastic tub to throw them all in. I love these shoe racks, but am seriously short on wall space inside the closet as well as space on the rods which knocks out those hanging racks. What’s a girl to do?!
The hotel box is genius. You purchase the boxes collapsed and after folding in a few choice places and adding a pair of rubberbands – voila! – instant box that sort of resembles an enlarged bag of popped microwave popcorn. The thing is they’re not only boxes. Stack them up to ten high for stackable shelves or use joint supporters and hang them as wall shelves. End table. Bathroom caddy. You name it. The dust lid that snaps onto the front makes them perfect for display purposes. So choose one of the sixteen available patterns and go at it.
