Roundup: Classic Storage Boxes

We have a love for containers and small boxes that, at times, has caused us to need boxes for our boxes! Proper containerization is key to maintaining an organized office, room, or home in general. Here are some of our favorite boxes for compartmentalizing.

1 Jonathan Adler's laquered boxes have long been a favorite! The super glossy finish and bold colors kill us every time. The price tag is hefty, but so worth it you can swing it!

2 These Offi Nester Stacking Boxes in walnut combine the convenience and versatility of a milk crate with the finesse and design sensibility of a midcentury modern nesting table.

3 Since the age of five we have had a downright obsession with the Container Store's Amac Boxes. They're all shapes and sizes, jewel-toned (or clear!) and extremely inexpensive! We will always hold a special place in our heart for these.

4 We'll go ahead and call them a new classic since these Wood Boxes With Laquered Lids from West Elm combine the simplicity of a utilitarian accessory box with the chic appeal of Jonathan Adler's laquered boxes (see above). They come with a less heart-palpitation-inducing price tag, as well.

5 Ikea's Kasset boxes have solved so many storage problems for us for such a low cost, that we have to call them a classic. Great colors, great price, great sizes--we love them!
