While we're all about whittling down on belongings, the fact is, some of us just have a lot of stuff. Yarn for knitting, magazines we can't bring ourselves to part with, sentimental collections and so on. And while you may or may not have kids, storage pieces aimed at organizing their stuff can provide a well-designed solution.

After all, kids themselves come with a lot of stuff and even the most minimalistic parents are looking for places to store it. These pieces satisfy both needs, providing lots of places to stash belongings, while looking good enough for any room in the house.
