Looking for a something a bit out-of-the-ordinary in a laundry hamper? JoJo Designs makes about 60 different laundry hampers, intended for children's rooms.

Sweet Kyla also makes a number of clothes hampers intended for little ones.

French laundry hamper

This fun option comes from French Bazaar, in Australia. (You can also find it here, in the Netherlands.) Update on Aug. 25, 2012: I'm no longer finding this at the sites that used to have it, but it comes form Derrière la porte and you can find it here and here.

And these laundry hampers come from Germany. Update on Nov. 16, 2011: I'm no longer finding these on the site that used to sell them. They were made by Rice, and I'm not finding them on the Rice web site, either.

rattan laundry basket with lid

This "Ali Baba" laundry basket can be found from online stores in the UK, here and here. Update on July 29, 2011: I'm only finding one web site selling this laundry basket now.

teak laundry boxes

Prefer something in wood? These lovely laundry boxes comes from Cinas, in Denmark.

Oooooh, I like those wooden ones from Denmark! They fit my criteria for a quality container -- firm (not floppy) and 90 degree angles (instead of curves). And they look really nice. Looking forward to the next post on sorters!

Because we have a tiny washing machine, we wash a load almost every day. I use a white Trones shoe storage unit from Ikea for dirty laundry - really a space saver.

Claire, glad you liked it!

Pat, thanks so much for adding your solution - but I'm having a problem with that URL. I'm guessing a digit got dropped off the end; is this the product you meant?
