Style + Storage + Sensibility = The Article No 54 Wooden Storage Cube

February and March are always an exciting time at the store because with all that we see and buy in such a short time at the Atlanta market in January, we sometimes forget what things look like in person until they arrive in the store. (side note: it's a fun time for most of us . . .not quite as fun for the "crew of 2" unpacking everything!)

I have to admit that I literally gasped because I was so excited when I walked out on our sales floor on Monday morning and saw some of the new arrivals from Aidan Gray Home.

I am so incredibly fond of this new "Article No 54" wooden storage cube for so many reasons! I'm loving burlap right now . . .we see it used in many different ways including drapes, pillows and lamp shades. It's an interesting combination when matched with lighter linens and silks, adding great texture.

So to start, the burlap tufted cushion on top is terrific, the reclaimed wood and the stenciling are fabulous, surrounded by rustic distressed metal and nailheads. It's a lovely size at 18 x 18 x 18. When guests come over, you can pull it up for extra seating or place it between two armchairs with a square tray on top and you have an attractive side table.

The woven handles make it easy to move around in your space and of course, the best part is the hidden storage! Who doesn't need a little extra hiding space . . .for magazines, books, throws, toys, etc. The burlap cushion just lifts right off! Oh wait, the best part really is the price at $265.

It's such a treat to find style, storage and functionality all in one great little package! Our stock room is FULL right now . . .I can't wait to see what shows up next.
