Baskets Containers

Raumgestalt tYten All-Purpose Bags

The question isn’t what you would store in these Raumgestalt Tyvek bags, but what would you not store in these Raumgestalt Tyvek bags? Fish, maybe, and kittens- those wouldn’t be ideal, nor would any other living, squirming thing (except worms?), but other than that, you’re probably good to go. Tyvek is a water-resistant, tear-resistant, lightweight, and compressible material, which makes it perfect for impromptu (or permanent) storage for all manner of things about the house. Available in small (6.7″ H x 6″ Diam), medium (9.8″ H x 8.25″ Diam.), and large (14.5″ H x 12.2″ Diam).

Ferm Wire Baskets

How could you use a basket? How about for storing firewood, laundry, towels, magazines, toys, or your discarded dreams? It’s way too early in the year for that, though, so let’s just stick to tangibles. You can even turn these baskets upside down and use them as a side table or stool. Or crazy hat. Such versatility. Powder coating available in yellow, black, or rose.

Soji Containers

Whether you use these containers in the kitchen for storing tea leaves or elsewhere to corral odds and ends, you’ll enjoy their beautiful Castor Aralia wood grain. Using one or two to organize those items you use often might bring a little bit more pleasure than storing those same items in a flimsy plastic alternative.

Segmented Jars by Ben Fiess

Are these jars meant for functional use or merely as art objects? Perhaps both, as rare as that might be. Ben Fiess brings us quite a few color options on these slightly-odd-yet-beautiful jars, and each vessel breaks apart into container, strainer, lid and cap.

Iittala Jars

Iittala Jars are certainly a beautiful way to store away your odds and ends in the kitchen, bathroom, or office. The jars are mouth-blown of non-leaded glass and have airtight lids with a rubber seal. Considering the cost, you might want to use these jars for areas where they’d be seen- maybe on open shelving in the kitchen- because it’d be a shame to hide them away in a cupboard or cabinet. Note: You are able to purchase jars separately, however the links below are for sets of 5, in either small or medium sizes.

Patricia Urquiola Wire Baskets

Update: Two of these three wire baskets by Patricia Urquiola are now more than half off, which means you just might be able to afford one or two. Each basket is made from a single module of wire which is repeated 15 times and intertwined to create the shape. If you’d like some height, keep in mind that the Wire Centerpiece can be stacked on top of the Citrus Basket. Made in Italy.

Collapsible Laundry Basket

This isn’t for everyone, but it seems so handy to have such a large-ish rolling basket to simply collapse and store when not in use. Quite similar to the Collapsible Wire Basket from CB2 (and, most likely from the same maker/manufacturer), this basket collapses when you don’t need it for your household miscellany (toys, laundry, etc.).

Material: Metal
29″ height, 22″ dia., 13.5″ basket depth

First Aid Storage Box

If you’d rather assemble your own first aid kit than spend money on a premade kit (like the Best Made Co. one), consider this sturdy metal box with rivited clasps and hinges. Embossed lettering clearly labels the contents making it easy to find, which is, of course, important in an emergency.

Animal Boxes

I recently saw a few of these Animal boxes (by Karl Zahn) lined up along a windowsill in someone’s home, and it struck me how they’d be a thoughtful tradition to get one each year as a gift for a friend or loved one. Each box represents a “power” animal, a sort of totem for one’s ambitions. Plus, there’s just enough room inside for something small and special should you decide to take the gift a step further.

Collapsible Wire Basket

Baskets aren’t normally something to fawn over, but the idea of a collapsible basket is certainly intriguing. When you need to corral anything from toys to towels, it’s a rather large (22″dia.x12″H) container, and when it’s empty it collapses to what seems to be an inch or two high. Just the size to store under the bed or sofa, or maybe even hang on the wall.

Handmade from iron with natural finish.
Indoor use only.
