Whether you have kids or not, I’m sure you have a lot of little things that tend to pile up with no place to go.

Another favorite are medium sized baskets. I’m loving all of the different materials that I’ve seen these come in and they are perfect for pretty things like throws, or kid’s things like balls.
I have a few woven baskets up on the shelves in my living room. I love them because you can’t see what is inside and they add a ton of texture and a natural element to a space.
