Baskets Containers


This is so very clever. Mountable as a shelving solution or stacked to make a storage unit, the Designchain is a good solution to all that stuff that needs organizing. It’s modular, so it can also be added to by attaching other Designchains.

“Designed by New Zealander Alan Hucks, the Designchain is an effortlessly stylish, multi functional storage system based on a bicycle or motorcycle chain. It is made from crystal clear polycarbonate and is linked together to form a series of tubes that will hold anything from wine to flowers, magazines to utensils, remotes to mobile phones.”

D & M Rubber Containers

Such a steal! As far as planters go, they look a whole lot better than the selection at any garden store I’ve seen.

“Made of rubber, these containers are water tight, lending them to a range of functions. Here at the store we drill holes in the bottom and use them for succulents or orchids. Or we use them as is for floral arrangements. You can use yours however you’d like.”

Alan Fletcher: Clam Container

Are you picky about plastic? These containers are considered classics (lots of good things came from the 60′s) and would make excellent lay-about storage for smaller items.

“This classic multipurpose container was designed by British born Alan Fletcher for the Italian company Mebel in 1968. This container consists of two interlocking parts, which allow you to switch colors if you purchase two or more units. Use it as a small storage container or use each part as a “catch it all” for keys, coins, paperclips, etc. Each united is stamped with the designer’s name. A timeless and practical design.”

Plastic melamine.
