Hey, I don’t usually dedicate a blog post to gush over a single item, but when I saw this in the latest West Elm catalogue, I couldn’t help myself.
British designer Sebastian Conran conceived this fantastic storage bag exclusively for West Elm as part of the Universal Expert Collection. Made from durable cotton denim – 70% cotton denim, 30% polyester – with a high-capacity box construction, it comes in either a solid or striped dark blue.
These are perfect for vacation rentals with clearly marked seasons wherein you have to exchange bedding, throws, pillow covers and upholstery as the weather changes and need storage bags and boxes to store the unused stuff. These bags feature a label holder and a handy dandy pull handle. You can also use them in guest room closets to store extra blankets for guests on chilly nights.
My favorite thing about them is they aren’t rigid like the more typical plastic storage boxes so you can smush them together any old way and they still look fantastically put together. I am a fan of Sebastian Conran and think all of his products for Universal Expert are simple, stylish and satisfying to use, all adjectives I advise in vacation rentals.
The thing to remember about West Elm is they constantly change their product line so these will sadly not last. Grab one while you can, is my advice.
