Guest Picks: Arrange Style With New Storage

Following a year of amassing clutter, a new year often brings the need for organization and storage. Bearing this in mind, I’ve pulled together a range of different storage options acceptable for different rooms with an array of storage needs. My favorites have to be the colorful shoe storage unit and the mango wood bookcase out of West Elm. What pieces do you enjoy best? Do you have any top storage hints? — Will from Bright.Bazaar


Bocksey Multicolored Wood Modular Shelving System – GBP 730

This is a clever storage system because it is intended to meet your unique needs. You may pick and choose from the different box sizes and shelving elements as per your storage requirements.


Boulder Display Unit Tall, Purple/Yellow/Gray Scheme – GBP 1,545

Purple and yellow constantly look fantastic when paired together. This color palette along with the curved lines of this piece make it ideal storage for a nursery or playroom.


Hemnes Linen Cabinet – $249

There is something cozy and reassuring about a room with a linen cabinet. The Hemnes design at Ikea is among my favorites.

West Elm

Whitewashed Wood + Metal Shelves – $899

I enjoy using mango wood from the white-painted alloy of the bookcase. The wheels are fine industrial touch too.

Contemporary Coffee Tables – GBP 375

It would be hard to pay this fashionable industrial-style coffee table in books, but there’s always the lower shelf.

West Elm

Patchwork Secretary – $1,399

This side unit is a superb investment piece for smaller spaces because it doubles as a desk and a storage piece.


Shoe Box Cube – GBP 495

I am not sure I’ve ever noticed a shoe storage solution as lively and cheerful as this particular one. You can even organize the colorful pegs as per your preference and then use them as coat hooks. Double the storage in one unit? Perfect.


TPS Mint File Cabinet – $159

This mint-colored filing cabinet proves that workplace furniture does not need to be boring.


Agnes Shelving Unit – GBP 560

A leaning ladder-style bookcase is a excellent way to attract more storage to a distance whilst maintaining a feeling of openness. This option works really well if you’re looking to store pieces you wish to see like vases and mementos, rather than paperwork, etc..


Color has always been my vice, therefore I felt weak at the knees upon seeing this green and black color combination. I really like the surprise of this deep, moody black interior against the vivid gloss of this lime green outside.


Dagmar Nightstand – $998

I enjoy the midcentury contemporary –inspired design of the bedside table. The crimson lacquer finish on the ash wood brings a gorgeous sleekness to the piece.

Rowen & Wren

Zinc-Lined Willow Basket – GBP 58

Not looking for a big storage investment? All these willow baskets are fantastic for storing odds and ends and transitional products.


Campagne Dresser – GBP 699

I enjoy the French country feel to the outfit. The wooden storage containers give it a relaxed, provincial feel.


Brixham Whites Wood Cabinet – GBP 380

I enjoy the pretty blossom detailing that adorns the doorways of the elevated cabinet. This design will help keep a feeling of space in a room, as the eye will see beneath big pieces of furniture.

Schoolhouse Electric

Pullman Walnut Credenza – $2,650

The black walnut inside this sideboard brings a great richness and depth to the piece. Each one is handcrafted in Portland.

The Conran Shop

Wave by Content Sideboard – GBP 1,649

Low pieces are a excellent way to bring storage to transitional spaces like hallways and landings. I enjoy the wave effect of the design.

Traditional Decorative Boxes

I think these metallic storage trunks are a super fun way to bring storage into a space. Putting a lamp along with them makes them feel just like statement pieces.


Driftwood Cabinet – $2,400

Produced from found driftwood, this tiny cabinet is ideal for a coastal or eclectic scheme. I am in love with all the feel it attracts.


A Symmetric Closet – $999

It had been the asymmetrical doors with this piece that caught my attention.


Vitra Storage Unit ESU Bookcase – GBP 1,804

This classic bookcase was designed in 1949 by Charles and Ray Eames, therefore it would be an insult to the artists’ incredible work to not include it!
