Brandi Armes was right on with her answer, “a toy chest.” Although, it doesn’t necessarily have to be used for toys. It could look really cool as a functional work of art in a modern living room. (Secretly, I love KatheryneNix’s answer, “the back of a toilet.”)
Spanish designer Javier Mariscal created this funky trunk for the Italian home decor company Magis‘ Me Too products, “a collection of objects and furniture for children between two and six years old.” This isn’t a typical throw-in-the-basement type of bin; El Baul, as it’s named, is made with a material called rotational-molded polyethylene. Golf balls and pink flamingo lawn accents are made with a similar molding process.
Would you use El Baul in the grown-up areas or children-oriented spaces in your home?
