10 Easy Pieces: Modern Rectangular Wooden Trays

If there were one inanimate object that best encapsulated our storage philosophy here at The Organized Home, it would be the tray. A beautiful tray encourages beautiful and simple organization (as opposed to the storage M.O. we see so often these days of buying more and more containers to conceal more and more of our possessions). A tray is multipurpose; it can act as a serving platter, keep you organized, display your favorite trinkets—and, left alone, it can be decorative, to boot.

Lately, we’ve noticed quite a few refined modern wooden trays on the market. Here are our current favorite rectangular versions.
