sophisticated storage: the hookmaker tea tile



In our apartment we hang our keys from initialed alphabet hooks right now, but these ceramic tea tiles, $30 each at Design Glut, present some pretty fierce competition. Perfect for odds and ends, the cup is big enough to hold kitchen utensils, pens and all manner of day-to-day debris while adding a sophisticated accent. They look great in multiples, and bright colors would pop against the clean white ceramic. Pinkies up! — Sarah C.

I really like these, too. I can think of a couple of places in my house where they would be perfect. And they would help keep those pesky horizontal surfaces less cluttered.

I wonder, too, if one could use this outside the house on a small porch, perhaps, as a planter for ivy or a small fern or clover?
