A toilet brush is one of those household essentials you can’t stand to look at yet need to have on hand. While it’s tempting to just turn a blind eye to the boring plastic holder hiding out in the corner, Maggie Berry, associate director of retail marketing for the Museum of Modern Art, wasn’t going to let an ugly brush come between her and her brand-new bathroom. “I was eager for one that was more useful and beautiful,” she shared with us at a recent breakfast celebrating MoMA Design Store’s upcoming collections. After an intensive web search led her nowhere, Berry had one last string to pull: “I figured I couldn’t have been the only one, so I made a request to our buying team to help solve my problem—they love a good challenge.” 

They came back with the Flex Steel Toilet Brush, a sleek canister that comes with a no-drip silicone bristle brush. After learning of Berry’s personal plight, we made it our mission to hunt down more stylish brush holders. These are our 12 favorite finds:
