The San Francisco Chronicle ran a story this morning (from the Washington Post), entitled Shoe-box storage gets better; it's about the Hotel Box from Pure Nomade in Denmark. The boxes come in a variety of patterns, as well as some solid colors. They are meant to be stackable shoe sort-of boxes - which could, of course, also be used for other things.
It's an odd product, so let me just briefly quote from the article: "The $25 Hotel box, devised by Pure Nomade, is not only cheerful to look at, it also works as both storage and furniture. The unusually shaped, easy-to-assemble cardboard cubby can corral cosmetics, electrical cords, small toys or, of course, shoes."
I'm not quite sure what to think about this one, beyond "how interesting."
