Should you find yourself missing the 'student flat' aesthetic of your past, these Page Thirty Three crates might do the trick but with a little more polish.
The milk crate does duty as a seat, shelf (multiples interlock vertically to stack), side table or storage box - though it will set you back $269.
Or at $233, the bread crate doubles as a carry tray as well as a handy storage container for whatever takes your fancy.
Designed and handcrafted in Australia, they're available here through Father Rabbit.
