The typography-inspired archive boxes from House Industries are so handsomely designed, you’ll want to display them rather than shove them in your closet. For $38, choose from four sets of three boxes each — Numbers, Braces, Alphabet, or Combo.
While you’re on their website, make sure to check out their other design-inspired gifts and their custom fonts — sign up for a free font catalog, and they’ll give you a free font to go with it! See them at www.houseind.com/objects/housewares/
