  1. Everyone needs a good catch all caddy that is slim and narrow with good angles.  I am loving the one pictured above from Anthropologie with its clean lines and modern vibes.  This piece is functional yet professional.
  2. Item two is also from Anthropologie and pairs perfectly with the listed above catch all caddy.
  3. Need a trash can?  This item is fun without being over the top.  This simple trash can is from Urban Outfitters and really jazzes up a normally unattractive item.
