If you’re on the hunt for some great storage solutions, but your home is more vintage and retro than minimalist and modern, you’re going to want something a little more quirky than a set of plastic stacking boxes.

Alternatively, stand it on top of a sideboard in the lounge, and use it to display favourite books and ornaments.
