Room For Squares For Your Spaces

Design Inspiration

I’m not sure what it is about wooden boxes, but I get the feeling I’m not alone in thinking they’re so totally cool and exceptionally charismatic. The more worn and labeled the box, the better. There’s no wrong answer here, and because of their natural stashing capabilities and stackable shape, the ideas and options are endless when it comes to configuring these cubed cubbies into hip and functional storage. Whether your style is modern, cottage, Asian, Southwestern, country, or even mid-century modern, you won’t be a square by putting these squares in your spaces.
