Want to put baskets or bins in your shelving with cubes/cubbies? On the last Twitter #askorg session, someone asked about baskets for 13" by 13" cubbies: something between IKEA and Gracious Home - with quality, but not too pricey.
Well, I've been able to find a few square storage containers that would fit. Pottery Barn has some nice 12" by 12" baskets, in dark and light shades.
This basket from the U.K. is a 12" cube - maybe too pricey, but I couldn't pass up this photo.
Tomo Tala in the U.K. has cube baskets, too, measuring 30 cm (11.8").
And I'm totally taken by the raffia baskets sold by TakaTomo.de, in three different color options. These measure 30 x 30 x 20 cm. You can also see them at the Rice web site.
Not quite square - the larger size measures 12 x 11 x 10.25"h - are these baskets from Land of Nod, "featuring sturdy, hand-woven paper rope construction."
And if the storage doesn't have to be a basket, you could consider canvas options. The one above comes from World Market; there are a number of different patterns, plus some solid colors. These are collapsible, and they measure 12" by 12". Update on Aug. 5, 2010: I'm only seeing solid-color ones at World Market now.
