February is the perfect time to shake off the mounting clutter and excesses of Winter, and give your home a fresh look. Whether you’re searching for somewhere to keep all the new Christmas presents, or simply want to get organised ready for Spring, we’ve got some great storage ideas that will keep your home organised and stylish.
Fitted Lady’s Wardrobe Suitcase, £100.00
We love using suitcases as storage solutions here at Scaramanga; from mounting them on the wall as quirky shelves to stacking them up and turning them into a coffee table or side table, the options are literally endless. Our fitted lady’s wardrobe suitcase, £100, is one of our favourites; despite dating from the 1940’s, it’s in an incredibly good condition and features a stunning printed interior with separate sections for clothes and shoes. Ideal for storing out of season clothes and accessories, this beautiful suitcase would add a lovely vintage touch to any bedroom or lounge.
Vintage Leather Travel Holdall, £149.00
We think one of the best things about our leather travel bags is how versatile they are; with their large dimensions and beautiful leather, they can be used in almost any situation. But because of their large inner compartments, they also make ideal places to store things – our vintage leather travel holdall, £149 measures a spacious W45cmxH35cmxD22cm, making it the perfect place to hide away jumpers, bed linen, accessories or even books. We think they’d look much better on top of the wardrobe than flimsy plastic high-street crates, and there’s the added bonus of being able to actually use them if you go away on holiday. Bonus!
Vintage Industrial Chest, £275.00
Originally used in a shop or workshop, our vintage industrial chest, £275 makes the ideal place to store any smaller items, such as jewellery, accessories or craft and office supplies. Constructed from solid hardwood, and with a faded painted finish, it would look perfect in any modern rustic or vintage industrial themed home. The W94cmxD30xH31 dimensions make it the ideal size to either sit on the floor or stack on top of a sideboard or set of shelves, and the drawers are perfect for keeping those little things safe.
Vintage Industrial Soap Tray Racks, £70.00
Storage really doesn’t come any sweeter than this; the Scaramanga vintage industrial soap tray racks, £70, were sourced straight out of the Bronnley soap factory, and have a wonderful floral smell due to the soap residue inside. Made from wood, and with stencilled writing on the sides, these gorgeously retro racks measure D76cmxW38cmxH11cm and are ideal for stacking together or using as drawers to store things, or simply as trays in the kitchen and dining rooms.
Large Overlander Leather Bag, £155.00
The second of our beautiful leather bags featured in this weeks post is the large overlander leather bag, £155; our largest and most spacious bag design yet. Measuring W46cmxH37cmxD15cm, and with a superbly solid construction, this bag is the ideal place to store anything that you want to keep out of sight, or that isn’t in use. From books to out of season clothing, CDs, DVDs and much more, pile it in and then display it proudly in any room of your house!
