High and Low: Small Storage Boxes

Odd that simple storage boxes could actually be considered a "high" item, but with all things designer, nothing is left behind. We felt the pinch while perusing Orla Kiely's new home line for the smaller ticket items. Loving the storage containers, boxes, magazine and file holders' patterns, we just can't get past the notion of a price tag upwards of $70!

This immediately led us to trusty IKEA for the most basic of basics (if you just can't bring yourself to use ugly old shoe boxes for storage.)

Above: Compare Orla Kiely's Tulip Print Large Storage Box Olive, £40.00 (about $72), and IKEA's LINGO box with lid, $6.99 (set of two). Plus, the IKEA boxes are larger! Orla Kiely Rowan Tree Magazine Box Slate, £22.00 (about $40)
and IKEA's STRIKT magazine files, $8.99 (set of two).
