LA-based Mod Mom Kiersten Hathcock made this bright Bertie Box from birch plywood, a sturdy storage choice for scattered toys; Roll it from room to room to pick up the pieces of playtime.
There's no reason why toys should get all the glory, when their storage box can be just as cool. Mod mom Kiersten Hathcock makes made-to-order furniture to accommodate kids—and parents—with a keen sense of style; Riley Page is made from Russian Baltic Birch, and the pattern on top can be customized to your home decor, simply send along your preferred prints and she'll decoupage them onto the petals.
Aldo van den Nieuwelaar designed A'dammer for Pastoe in 1978, and the round-topped unit with the roll-top door is still brilliant. The ribbing allows you to grab hold at any height, and the interior shelving heights are completely customizable behind the sliding cover. Available in the US from Suite New York.
It can be tough to find the right place in the home for traditional litter boxes, which can be a little big, a bit untidy (no matter how fastidious your feline), and, well, just not too nice to look at. ModKat made its debut at ICFF this year and the thoughtful design makes a huge difference; The cat enters through the top, which opens up floor space and allows any stray kernals to fall back in as the kitty climbs out, and reusable liners eliminate the need for disosables. This neat new litter box will start shipping in mid-September.
