I am so excited to introduce my exclusive collaboration – The Container Store x KonMari!
The foundation of the KonMari Method™ is to choose what sparks joy for you – and then to give these items a home. I worked with The Container Store to create joyful organizing essentials you can use throughout your space – from the kitchen and closet to the home office and playroom.
I drew on elements of Japanese culture and design – and on decades of tidying experience. The Hikidashi Storage Boxes are among my favorites. We expanded upon my original limited edition boxes for KonMari with a versatile assortment of mix-and-match sizes and soothing patterns. “Hikidashi” means drawer in Japanese, and these boxes and lids let you create a drawer where there wasn’t one before. Made from sturdy recycled paper, they’re perfect for organizing your clothes, accessories and treasured items. They are simple and beautiful – with a touch of whimsy.
For clothes that love to hang, we created an assortment of hangers made from metal and bamboo – a naturally renewable resource with a warm look. There’s something very satisfying about opening your closet and seeing all the clothes and accessories you love hanging there waiting for you.
Handmade from bamboo, the latticework in the Shoji Collection is reminiscent of traditional Japanese room dividers that help to make the most of small spaces. Like shoji screens, these bamboo organizers are a functional and elegant way to divide your space.
As a busy mom, I know that it’s hard to keep your house tidy. But having a place for everything to return to at the end of the day makes the tidying process easier – and more fun for everyone! I made sure our kids’ tidying tools were durable and colorful – and kawaii, which means “cute” in Japanese!
I hope this collection helps you maintain a tidy home and make space for what matters most. As you tidy, take inventory of your possessions – and reevaluate your relationship with them. Being mindful of your emotional state, and tending to your wellbeing, will help you defeat clutter once and for all.
