Feathergrain Wood Bins
I originally bought the larger of the two, hoping I could use it as a magazine bin in the bathroom. Well, it was too big, but the smaller one (that I thought would be TOO small) fit perfectly with half an inch on either side of the magazine! Now the bathroom looks organized and rustic in a way my husband appreciates!

Great looking storage
Did a DIY project turning an ugly old desk into an updated look. Removed desk drawers and put these wooden bins in place of the drawers. Looks awesome!

Pulled the look together
I bought 3 of these containers for storage but to also look nice. I'm very pleased with this purchase and would recommend them to a friend. They finished off the look perfectly!

Decent buy -- probably not worth the price.
These boxes are fine. Nothing particularly bad to write home about, however for the price I would have liked a more sturdy wood and a higher quality finish. I think this is personal preference, though, as I bought them online and when I got them in person they didn't wow me.
Also, if you want several, make sure to look at them in person as the grain is different on different boxes. Even though two might be similar, one may look like it's from a different set altogether. It's annoying if you're even slightly particular about things matching.

They are easily scratched but I found some clean ones in the store. They fit Cd's nicely and look great. Perfect size. I bought bigger ones and smaller ones to use on a bookcase

Excellent Organizational Tool
I bought this for our walk in closet which has numerous shelves. This organized the shelving further, and also looks beautiful!

Perfect bin to showcase!
I needed to find a cute little display for an upcoming event to showcase my all natural spa products, something beyond the typical acrylic pieces. I stumbled on these wood bins and they were a hit! My clients loved the earthy feel and it complimented my product line with very little effort. I went back to the store and bought 1 more! This boho girl is very pleased!

Lightweigh, Pretty Storage
I purchased two of these bins for use as open storage on top of my fridge. They are the perfect size for chips and bread and are lightweight enough to pull down many times a day to get what I need.

Beautiful, practical storage
Just bought three of these to store towels and sheets up on a shelf. These boxes are beautiful and practical. The towels fit well when rolled, and I can see all the towels at once, making it easier to grab the one I want. Because the boxes have square angles rather than tapering out as many storage bins do, they take up less space and use the space more efficiently.

Perfect for LP storage
There are very few storage options that can hold LPs which are 12 1/4 inch wide (most containers have internal dimensions of 12 inches). The inside dimension of these boxes is 12 1/4 inches, just right for LPs.

I have been very satisfied with my purchase of the leather grain wood bins. One of the items I received was damaged and The Container Store sent me a replacement withing days of my advising them of the condition in which the first order arrived. The boxes are sturdy, have handles for ease of moving, and help contain materials and documents in an organized manner.

What a Wonderful Bin!
My girlfriend bought me two of these bins for Christmas to display my comic books and they amazing! So amazing, that I just purchased two more! They are super light a seem pretty durable.

At our office we needed to organize an entire area and the Feathergrain Wood Bins were perfect. They were not only sturdy to hold various items on the shelves but nice looking. Since my purchase everyone keeps commenting on the Bins and where did I purchase them. They are practical and good-looking!!!

Love these boxes
These boxes are great! Nice wood and stain; high quality. I got three boxes plus a tray and am using them for baby stuff around my house. They contain all the clutter that used to be around these rooms (books, random toys, burp cloths, and a little diaper changing station), and look great in our bedroom and living room. I'm really picky and was pleasantly surprised by how much I love these boxes!

Nice open storage
I am using two of these bins in a TV cart to store video games and DVDs. The dimensions fit the open shelves nicely, and they hold a good number of cases. They are easy for my young kids to pull out and choose their own game/movie, and they look nice from the front. The wood feels a little soft, but that has not been a problem (yet).

Lightweight yet durable. The boxes have that vintage/reclaimed vibe and look great in my home. I put them in the bottom of some nightstands that were open and they help hide the clutter. Will purchase more in the future for my pantry.

Wonderful Woody Addition
So smart and practical too! These fit right in to my closet make over and class it up with gray texture. Light weight but strong.

Love these bins!
I use these bins in my pantry to separate different categories of food and supplies. They work so well! They are durable, chic, and easily glide on and off the shelf for easy access. I love the three size options. I put chalkboard labels on them and they look awesome.

Worst CS Purchase I Have Ever Made
I almost never post reviews of products but this bin angered me enough to write this review. I bought two of the large bins as storage for sheets and diapers. When I went to use some of the sheets I noticed a film of black dust like material on the portions of the sheets that were touching the box itself. Come to find out that the finish on this product is not sealed so it rubs off on anything. And I mean anything....the diapers in the other bin were equally covered in black film. I spent forever trying to wipe the bin down to make it useable just to determine that there was no amount of wiping that would make it go away. I eventually spent hours hand painting the bins because they were the perfect size and I had already spent so much time trying to remove the offending black film. However, I will think twice about purchasing from CS again.

This bin was just as pictured. I love the texture and very high quality! This box is not falling apart any time soon.

These are really good looking and a sophisticated simple design. Lightweight and roomy- with a beautiful finish.

Good value, multi-use bin
I searched high and low for the perfect bin to store kitchen tools under a freestanding island. These are perfect! They're solidly made. I pull them in and out from under the island a few times a day and after 2 years, they still look good. Only wish that they were a little cheaper, since I need more!

Practical and Beautiful
Combined one or two of these with the whitewashed bins as a small bookshelf/ case. All still in perfect condition, and feathergrain gives it character and probably will hide any scratches if you're rough with them.

Great quality for the price
I have several Feathergrain Bins in multiple sizes, and they're excellent for storing a number of items. The walls feel fairly thin, and as mentioned in the description the bins are very lightweight, but by no means does this mean they can't handle larger loads of items or that they won't hold up to frequent use. They also look much nicer than plastic bins, and I like having them on display.
I will say that the color was different than I expected given the photo online--my monitor made them appear much more grey, but they're a darker brown that I actually prefer. If you look at the Feathergrain Wastebasket, I think it has a more accurate color representation, at least on my computer.
Bottom line: great product at an affordable price that you won't mind showing off. I plan to purchase a few more!

Useful Storage for shelf or under bed
Love this storage bin. Have been keeping my wrapping supplies in it. Large handle makes it easy to quickly grab and slide or carry.

Great and lightweight
I bought one of these last year for my first year of college and wish I would've bought some more! I was going for a natural theme for my room, so of course I was drawn to the look, but I use it every day to hold all of my first aid and grooming things. I like it because it's easy to bring back and forth to school each semester since it's extremely lightweight.

Perfect for storage or turning into a basket! Looks great online and in store.

Great at the bottom of my closet for sandals and flip flops

Well Worth the Money
I have purchased a couple of different types of baskets and plastic containers to attempt to organize our closet in our kitchen that houses everything from dog food, treats and toys to tools to shoe shine to gloves, hats and mittens. I could never find something that made the closet "look" organized as well as acutally organizing and hiding the items that we have in it - until the Feathergrain Bins!!! These bins are made well and make my closet look clean and organized. They are definitely well worth the money and I feel that they will not be a trend look and I will use them as long as they last! Please do not discontinue Container Store!!

Beautiful and functional
I was impressed by how beautiful these boxes are- the small ones are just the right size for mail or papers.
