New for Spring at STORE…

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011
We just couldn’t wait for the launch of our Spring ’11 Storage Solutions collection to let you know about some of our fab. new products that are now arriving from our manufacturers. They say a picture tells a thousand words, so here’s some nice photos to wet your appetite:

Bird Bath Shower Caddy £47

A really unusual take on the traditional shower caddy. Dennis Cheng’s stylish moulded white design allows shampoo and shower gel bottles to be stored upside down for easy access during showering .

There’s plenty of storage space for your other lotions, potions and conditioners as well as a soap dish and hooks for flannels etc.

The caddy has a suction hook at the base to attach to the wall for extra stability and the upper hook has a non-slip rubber coating to protect your shower head.

 

 

 

 

 

Mackintosh Side Table £245

Teddy Luong’s lidded coffee / side table is finished in a high gloss white wood. It has a removable lid to store all that everyday clutter that seems to hang around the lounge and there’s a neat cut-out on the outside to store your magazines, TV guides, remotes etc.

The glazed windows are frosted to provide just the right about of privacy to hide the clutter inside and we predict this glossy white unit to be a real hit with STORE’s clutter conscious customer base!

Sticks Coat Hook £29

Luciano Lorenzatti’s moulded hook offers a refreshingly unusual take on hanging-up your coat in the hallway. This stylish espresso coat hook has branches to hang the families coats, scarves and bags on that neatly fold back when not required…great for use where space is tight!

STORE makes top 10 in UK’s 50 Best Homewares List

Monday, January 17th, 2011

On the basis that appearing just once in The Independents annual 50 Best Homeswares supplement is prestigious enough, to appear twice is a bit of a coup, especially when we’re surrounded by big retail names such as John Lewis and Next.

This year STORE stormed into the top 10 just behind Sainsburys with our stylish Nest Shoe Rack which offers an unusal take on the traditional hallway shoe storage rack. Our neat Cuboid CD Storage Rack was also featured, The Independent calling it:

A more interesting take on the classic shelf arrangement, this will stand on the floor or sit on a shelf

Elle Decoration focus on STORE

Wednesday, January 12th, 2011

This month’s FOCUS article in Elle Decoration magazine concentrated on Simple Storage suggesting that:

no matter how ruthless your new year declutting, hatching a storage plan for the stuff you want to hang onto should be far more than considered!

The article featured the uber stylish Milanese home of Prada fashion designer Vicky Staris and included our very own Bookmark Bedside Unit (above).

As always we’re very proud that STORE was featured alongside some of the worlds most chic storage solutions but glad to see we’re up there with ‘em!

New at STORE – Handbag Storage Solutions

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

We seem to have had a thousand requests over the past few months for a space saving handbag storage solution that can be simply popped into the wardrobe to store those oversized handbags and clutch-bags etc. So we set to work to create something that was both simple and reasonably priced. Better still, what we’ve come-up with is a handbag storage solution that’s also going to save you a fair bit of space when it comes to bedroom storage.

Save precious wardrobe storage space with STORE's new and exclusive vertical Handbag Organiser at just £12

Exclusive to STORE, our new Handbag Organiser is made from cream canvas and simply hooks over your wardrobe clothes rail.  Rather than cluttering-up several wardrobe shelves or worse still cramming your handbags next to your shoes at the base of a wardrobe we thought that this handbag storage solution should offer the best solution to saving precious wardrobe space. By thinking vertically the solution we came-up with allows you to store up to 10 handbags in a very small space. Ok so it’s not super stylish, we’ll leave your handbags to that job but at £12 it may just save you a fair bit of wardrobe storage space.

Hanging Canvas Jewellery Store, £12

Fresh with the idea of a hanging handbag store for the wardrobe in our minds we also set to work to solve another storage problem that we’ve had lots of feedback from our STORE customers on. Whilst we’ve dozens of jewellery storage ideas for rings and necklaces etc. in STORE we’ve never found a decent storage solution for hair bobbles, scrunchies, hair slides, and all that costume jewellery that doesn’t really require pride of place on your lovely jewellery tree.

The solution was to design a Hanging Store to organise these items inside your wardrobe just like our Handbag Organiser. Finished in the same sturdy cream canvas we hope you like our new 72 pocket double sided Hanging Jewellery Store which again we’ve be able to put into production for just £12.

Alongside these two new fab. products for our New Year collection we’ve added a matching Under Bed Shoe Store with different sized compartments for shoes and winter boot storage plus a matching cream canvas low profile under bed duvet store to store the summer duvet  or how about for out of season clothing.
