Sometimes clutter is the big stuff in your home. But sometimes it's the small things you use often that you're not sure what to do with — the stuff that is sprinkled all over your tabletops and shelves. What to do? Invest in a few small to medium containers that can coral your clutter. We couldn't help but notice quite a few of these cute containers as we walked the halls of Ambiente — six in particular caught our eye.

Skagerak's Nordic series of bowls and small containers are lovely to look at without feeling like they steal the design show from your other decor.

Designers Carl Phillip Bernadotte and Oscar Kylberg designed the STOCKHOLM Aquatic collection for Danish design brand Stelton — a series of tabletop containers like bowls and vases meant to be the star of a table's centerpiece, but we don't see why the smaller bowls couldn't be used to contain anything anywhere. You can find retailers for Stelton on their website.

Normann Copenhagen's Geo Jar has a sleek modern profile and the ability to close off whatever you tuck into it with a strong black top.
