Your old record collection. Many, many pairs of snow boots. Every September Vogue since 1996. What to do with all the random stuff in your house that seems to make it through every well-intentioned purge? How about shoving storing it in a cool industrial chest ($689) or shipping cabinet ($794)?
We love these massive, colorful containers from new Lakeview shop Wrightwood Furniture. They?re sturdy and functional, and casual enough to feel right at home in a rec room or finished basement.
Wrightwood sources its products directly from factories around the world, shipping the pieces to Chicago and cutting out middlemen to keep prices low. (New stock arrives roughly every two weeks.)
The owners? aesthetic is rustic and comfortable--you?ll find lots of distressed finishes and nubby fabrics among the end tables, ottomans, dressers, chairs and benches.
We were also drawn to the store?s impressive collection of decorative Indian pillows and poufs. They?re nicely priced (pillows start at $21, poufs at $92) and perfect for our Gypset-inspired living room.
