Storage takes a crafty turn

November 15, 2008

Retailers may be hurting, but one category of furniture is doing just fine: storage. "Customers are looking for solutions as they move back home with parents, or take roommates as a way to control expenses in this tough economy," says Yumiko Whitaker, an IKEA spokeswoman for Los Angeles and Orange counties.

For a look at these clever pieces, including budget-minded buys from Macys, EQ3 in Burbank and West Elm in Santa Monica and Rancho Cucamonga, head online to latimes.com/home.
