Every now and then a fresh approach to designing an affordable storage system that’s more flexible than a collection of shelves and more nuanced than a bunch of boxes comes along to surprise us. This time around it’s Crates, an affordable solution to a fundamental fact of life: we don’t have just one type of stuff. Books? of course. Writing implements? check. LP’s? okay, some of us old folks do. Toys? Notes and snapshots? School supplies? Certainly.
Crates can handle all of these and look good doing it. Start with a crate. Put it on legs or casters, then stack some more crates on top or join them side by side as space and need dictate. Sub-divide some or all the crates with drawers or shelves, or leave them open. Attach a cork board for pin-up or a dry erase board for scribbling notes or making pretty pictures to the side. Toss a cushion onto the top of a crate and park your fanny on it for a comfortable stool. Add a cord clip for wire management, a hook for hanging stuff. Using Crates, everything is stacked in your favor!
And did we mention Crates was designed by Jenny Drinkard and is made in the USA?
