Chic Containers for the Home

By Kate Riley May 24, 2018

For Mother’s Day, all I wanted just a long afternoon of retail therapy, just me and my latte, strolling around favorite home decor stores like West Elm and CB2. I did just that and while I was out made a few purchases, one was a modern palm hurricane that I’m using as a planter. And may I mention CB2 is killing it with their spring vessels this year.


Those who read this blog know I have an teensy addiction to white ceramics, I collect them for use all over my house. On a weekend daytrip to Bainbridge Island, I found two handmade sculptural white cups made by a local artist and surprise! I had to bring them home for use in my bathroom vanity.


For storing stuff around the house, I prefer textural or sculptural or patterned containers instead of the more mundane or plain. I like containers with character! I spied a bunch of them at the stores mentioned above, and a few more online. Unique vessels to have so you can stash you stuff with style. Here are some standouts:


lupa planters / tides storage basket  / beaded hanging planter

parkay hamper / herringbone cachepot / wide stripe basket

two tone basket / totem vase / kalahari basket

penny planter / fluted pot

conway basket / dipped belly basket / isabella baskets



  1. These chic containers offer a perfect way to store things in your home in an attractive way. For example, if your desk is cluttered with pens and pencils, one of these attractive containers can keep the mess under control.
