“ Brand: Ikea / Type: Storage Unit „
Ikea Gorm Clip On baskets cost £2.55 each at present, and are only available to buy in Ikea stores. They only come in one colour option - black metal - which is a shame, but this worked fine for the Mrs' craft room colour scheme. These baskets are a very clever little storage system devised by those Ikea boffins. The clip sections on top of the baskets are very sturdy and grip brilliantly to shelves that you attach them to. They can be attached to Gorm shelves sold quite cheaply in Ikea, or to any shelf thin enough to take them. We purchased a black gloss shelf in Ikea from another range for around £3 and found them to be perfectly compatible. What's so great about these is how versatile they are. You can remove them and put them at any position along your shelf when required, and they are only a semi-permenant storage solution. If you later decide you don't need them, just unclip them and there are no unsightly holes in your walls to deal with or anything. Similarly, you can mount them easily in the first instance. You can also stack these in a row coming down from your shelf if required, so you could perhaps have a shelf overlapping your desk or table, and have a row of these hanging down beside your desk in place of a filing cabinet, or in addition to one. The advantage to using these being that the contents is displayed at all times, and you can take the baskets down and move them around while you work. These really are a clever little idea that have worked well for us. We purchased two of them for the Mrs to keep her craft papers handy in, and they've done the job brilliantly. They clip on easily and securely, can be moved around as required, keep their shape perfectly (these are firm metal constructions) and they even have a little tucked up bit at the end to make sure the papers don't go falling out. My only criticism is that these only come in this single size and colour option.
