I’ve logged a lot of hours in the Boston Design Center looking for the perfect upholstery fabric, furniture selection or lamp. When it comes to custom design solutions that create “one of a kind” unique interiors, this is the go-to place for interior designers serving the Boston and Providence areas and it serves as an invaluable resource.
But I am also an professional organizer… and with that comes the insatiable need to provide workable functional suggestions to my clients. I sincerely believe that aesthetics COULD and SHOULD intersect with functionality. So with that I share my two favorite stores that combine good design with great organizing products for short money. Home Goods always has fresh inventory and they also stock very useable products for home and business offices. Recently I came across this great looking wall mounted file holder for $39.99. while helping a client organize her office. This attractive unit not only made use of wall space in a small office but it also added the extra element of aesthetics that she was looking for…something that the standard plastic file holders could not provide.
Letting loose a professional organizer in The Container Store is a little bit like kids in a candy store type thing. I will admit I think I even get heart palpitations driving there…but honestly they have great stuff! Things like these decorative fiberboard containers make a great impact for very little money in a home or business office setting and if used properly, they offer a great organizing solution.
