Storage + Organization
Give a gift that can be used every day. Each one of these pieces is thoughtfully designed to make various spaces of the home more functional and aesthetically pleasing.
Modern industrial design meets nostalgia with this magazine rack from Scandinavian design brand Normann Copenhagen. The two compartments of this piece provide an aesthetically pleasing yet simple way to display records, magazines, or anything else you have on hand. We love how it’s styled here as part of a light & airy reading nook.
This solid brass pencil holder from Ferm Living adds an elevated look to a home office space. The varying levels of this piece allow you to easily grab various office supplies without having to tuck them away in a drawer.
This multifunctional basket from Danish design brand MUUTO is sustainably made, with felt material composed of fibers from recycled plastic bottles. This material results in a soft yet structured piece, making it the perfect basket for storing anything from linens to toys.
This Birch Veneer box was inspired by simple geometrics and minimal Japanese design. This miniature piece can provide a home for small everyday essentials, whether styled in the kitchen, the bathroom, or as a catchall on the bedside table. We recommend gifting two – they work nicely when grouped together.
This black marble and metal jewelry stand Danish design brand Ferm Living is such a beautiful and minimal way to organize and display jewelry. The solid black marble base has a slight curve, perfect for small items like rings and dainty studs.
We love this modern take on a traditional coat hook! This set of 5 oak wood dots makes a great gift for anyone who could use a creative way to utilize every inch of space, while still keeping things aesthetically pleasing.
This polished and solid metal organizer is a great gift for anyone looking for a bit more structure and style in their home office space. The individual trays stack together in an aesthetically pleasing way, perfect for sorting various bits of mail, papers, and other files.

Elevate the daily ritual of staying hydrated with this elegant, handblown glass set from Kristina Dam Studio. Two separate pieces unite to make a perfectly minimal capsule that is easy enough to transport around the home wherever you need it.
This hand-painted platter is made with a special, rustic clay. The Aya design celebrates the utilization of art on the table through the depiction of womanhood. It works beautifully as a centerpiece, and could also be mounted on the wall!
These glasses and matching carafe from MUUTO are thoughtfully created from mouth-blown glass. This classic and intuitive set is perfect for serving infused water, fresh-squeezed juice, or even a batch cocktail like sangria.
This bottle grinder set from MENU combines high function with minimalist fashion. It’s the perfect gift that adds a subtle hint of style to a kitchen countertop.
These cutting boards from Normann Copenhagen make a great gift for the aspiring or experienced home chef. Each type has a distinct design intended veggies, bread, or meat. Gift all three for a stunning yet stylish design that can be displayed when not in use.
This minimal wooden bowl is perfect for fruits and salads, or simply as a display piece on a kitchen island or dining table. This piece from Danish design brand Form and Refine is made from sustainably sourced solid European oak and has a coordinating cutting board, too.
This carafe works with both 25 oz and 33 oz bottles, and holds up to 47 oz of wine. Flip it once to serve your wine in the Winebreather Deluxe, or flip it twice to serve the wine in its original bottle. Either way, this carafe allows the aromas of your wine to become more present. We love the brass lid detail!
Together, these two pieces from Hasami Porcelain stack beautifully to elevate the ritual of morning coffee or tea. We love the look of the contrasting black and natural tones, both made in Hasami, Japan, a globally renowned pottery district. Gift the full Hasami experience with this matching sugar bowl and milk creamer.
We love the soft minimalist aesthetic of this pitcher from Form and Refine. The name Alcoa refers to the region of Alcobaça in Portugal, which is where this piece was made. The region has a natural richness of fine white clay which has cradled a culture of pottery.
This set includes 4 mouth-blown glasses that feature a beautiful ripple effect. Hold the glass in front of the light to enjoy an iridescent play of light and textures. With the matching carafe, this beautiful modern gift is still well under $150.
