The Hay Enamel Tray

Hay Enamel Tray
Above: Margot loves her Enamel Tray by Hay; $25. “Hay’s designs are clean-lined and practical but have a joie de vivre about them, perhaps because they don’t shy from color,” she says of the Danish design firm. She uses hers on her desk to rest her water bottle and phone.

The Muuto Wall Dots

The Verso Birch Basket

Verso Baskets Trio

The System Box by Lundia

You can also purchase individual boxes in three sizes and three colors.

The Aalto Wall Shelf

The Hay Bits and Bobs Containers
