New decade, same problem: Where the heck do you hide all those odds and ends that clutter your home space? How can you make the most use out of the pitiful little slab that makes up your tiny kitchen counter?
We expect to see many a brand offering solutions to this age-old conundrum in the next few months. Among them: the sleekly-designed Open Spaces, a new brand by Pattern. Open Spaces spent "months of testing different solutions" before coming up with organizational items and a 10-part guide for getting rid of your clutter. The brand also focused on materials with "lower environmental impact and a longer lifespan" such as "compressed felt made from recycled plastic bottle fibers." None of the products or packaging currently include single-use plastics.
You can even shop by room, although be prepared for some sticker shock. The Clean Kitchen set — which includes two shelf risers, four medium bins, two medium baskets, and two large baskets — retails at $250. (The 10-part guide, however, is totally free). More affordable items like the Nesting Trays remind us of designs like HAY's Kaleido Tray Sets.
