Beyond the Basics: Storage Boxes with Style

storage box with alphabet design - but an adult look

The Bankers Box is an incredibly useful storage container — but what if you'd like boxes that look really nice sitting out on the shelves, or wherever you're placing them? House Industries might be a good place to start your search; its boxes, made from recycled corrugated cardboard, come in three patterns. The boxes are sold in sets of three; you can get three of the same pattern, or one of each. [via Boing Boing]

Trunk and Orderly has some great-looking storage boxes. The company's web site says: "These are the real deal — not some flat packed, flimsy box held together with Swedish meatballs. These are a heavy-duty case with steel corners and label holders." [via Lissanne Oliver of Sorted]

And if you want to splurge, take a look at the Face (Painted) Boxes from Ferm Living; they're made of plywood. [via Better Living Through Design]
