Piano White Repose Storage Box by UmbraÂ®
Very elegant storage
I needed a desk organizer and was tired of my hodgepodge collection of wire mesh organizers. This accessory/jewelry box was the perfect solution. It looks so sleek, modern, and elegant on my tabletop, and neatly hides all my little knick knacks inside.
The compartments have removable dividers, but I use them to separate my business cards, gift cards, shopping cards, checkbooks, stamps, keys and thumbdrives.
The only downside is that you can't fill up the bottom compartment too much because there are small pegs glued under each of the top sliding sections. The pegs help stop the top compartments from sliding out when opening but they need clearance to move back and forth.
I paired this with the Container Store's Acrylic Lipstick & Pencil Cube to hold my pens and scissors and they look great together!

The box is beautiful looking but does not open completely making it difficult to use

Worth the sale price, but not full price
Purchased this on sale for $19.99, but if I had paid full price of $39.99, I would be returning it. It looks and feels a bit cheap, and the sliding compartments do not slide smoothly at all - I have to really yank on them to get them fully open. The inside is fine - the felt is nice enough and the compartments are a decent size. The doors open fine, and the box is sturdy.
