THE SCOUT

Put it right here

January 03, 2008|David A. Keeps

Other New Year's resolutions may have already gone up in smoke, but one is still worth pursuing: With a few turns of a screwdriver, these cleverly designed objects will help get you organized in style. The brainchild of Chicago industrial designers Bruce Tharp and Stephanie Munson, the Cubby, above, $90 each, is a hand-cast, white urethane hang-it-all that provides built-in storage space for keys, sunglasses and cellphones. The tubular peg also keeps collars smooth and eliminates annoying sweater dents caused by traditional hooks. From www.materious.com. For a more funky, kid-centric organizer, meet Harry, left. Designed by Reinhard Schmoelzer, it can hold business cards between its teeth, which are flexible plastic pieces that can be bent into hooks or wrapped around objects. Available in six colors, Harry can be wall-mounted with screws or stuck on a desktop, tile or -- makeup artists, take note -- vanity mirror using the suction cups included in the $36 price. Available at Zero Minus Plus at Fred Segal in Santa Monica, (310) 395-5718.
