When it comes to buying must-haves for the home, we make sure that we make the best and practical choices. From shopping for furniture to purchasing accessories, we always opt for pretty picks that can serve different purposes. Not only will these double as décor, some can be used to organize a ton of belongings, too. If you’re looking for items that meet these requirements, Mori can definitely deliver.

A new brand of wooden home décor, Mori promises tasteful pieces that can stand the test of time. The best part? Each piece is environmentally-friendly, too! The wood used in crafting the crates, coasters, and every item offered by the brand comes from properly managed forests. Add warmth to your space and achieve an inviting aesthetic with our picks:


Available in small and large sizes, these crates can be used to store books, toys, kitchen utensils, and even bottles. Since these are stackable, you don't have to worry about losing precious floor or counter space.

RL Idea: Following your home's palette, paint the crates in your chosen colors. If you love pastel shades, consider working with blue and light green. You can also look into having yellow crates for a cheerful pop of color. For a rustic-inspired vignette, use the crates as is.

RL Tip: If you're using the crates to store your kids' belongings, allot a crate for books and another for toys. This can make organizing easier as well.


No one wants to have a table with stains. Maintain your well-loved piece by having coasters for your drinks. Mori offers a set of four coasters with a textured finish that are manually shaped by skilled carpenters. Since it's available in different shapes—round, square, and octagon—you can mix and match your coasters for a playful touch during big parties and intimate gatherings.

RL Idea: Having friends over for cocktail night? Bring out your wooden coasters and pair it with sleek glasses and bowls. You can also use two to three of these as part of your dining table centerpiece.

Mail Holders

We're all familiar with the power of e-mails, text messages, and mobile apps. While these make getting in touch with friends easier, nothing still beats the charm of a handwritten letter. If you love collecting letters or if you simply need a holder for your bills and documents, a wooden piece would look good on a console table in the foyer or on your nightstand.

RL Idea: Aside from using these boxes to keep bills and letters organized, you may also want to use them as catchalls for your gadgets, daily essentials, and groceries.

Pen Holder

Jot down important messages and numbers easily by keeping a pen in the living area. No need to leave them on the table—organize them in style with this sturdy pen holder.

RL Tip: Place your pen holder on a table near the phone. Pair it with a mail holder filled with notepads. Make sure you also have one in your bedroom or study area.

Can't wait to have your own Mori piece? For inquiries and details on how you can order, visit the official Mori website. They also accept made-to-order pieces depending on your needs. You can send your questions to hello[at] Stay updated by following them on Facebook and Instagram.
