In late 2014, tidying expert Marie Kondo opened many consumers’ eyes to the reality of consumerism and materialism. We just have too much stuff, and she wasn’t afraid to tell us. Now, the New York Times best-selling author, founder of KonMari Media Inc, and Emmy-nominated television star has launched a co-branded collection of organisation accessories with The Container Store to help people take control. You can now have stuff, but you’ve got somewhere nice to put it.
The collection, which hit stores in January 2021, incorporates over 100 sustainably-sourced products that promote a tidy and joyful home, which Marie emphasises when encouraging people to focus on minimalism. All products use premium materials, such as recycled fibreboard, Forest Stewardship Council-certified wood, ceramic, and bamboo, and are sleek and stylish storage solutions for every room in your house.
