These stylish storage boxes will help you organize your home:

Colour Crate

P355/small; P895/medium. HAY


If you spend a lot of time scrolling through #aesthetic IG feeds or curated Pinterest boards, you’re probably familiar with Denmark-based home store HAY and their popular Colour Crates. In case you don’t know, you can get them from local online shop Design Story; and if you’ve had them on your wish list for ages, take this as a sign to finally add them to your cart. Their versatile look and build—which showcase the elegance, simplicity, and practicality of the Nordic design philosophy—lets you store and organize pretty much anything that would fit inside. Plus, they're collapsible, which means if you aren't using one of your Crates, you can easily fold it into a more compact size and tuck it away for later use.
