Tote any project where you need it. This leather-handled basket easily accommodates a laptop and other home-office gear; the wide opening lets you locate small stuff in a flash.
If you never really get around to filing stuff away, nurture creativity with a left-brain approach to order: uniform rectangular baskets made to grip and slide. Label one for redecorating, one for gift ideas, one for keepsakes and so on.
For towels by the tub, off-duty pillows in the bedroom or this week’s (and last week’s) newspapers, these richly textured columns make pretty displays of even the most mundane materials.
