Ah, storage. You can never have enough of it but choosing it can be a real challenge.
You need enough space inside the item to make it worth buying, but it needs to fit effortlessly with the scheme you’ve got going on. And it goes without saying that you need to love it.
The answer? Step forward FurnitureEtc, the online home of the best preloved furniture finds for all your shopping needs.

The storage section of FurnitureEtc is bursting with eclectic gems – from cupboards and cabinets to large sets of drawers and bookcases galore. Here are few that have caught my eye. Which one is your favourite?
A hand-painted beauty
This beautiful 1920s cabinet has been transformed into a fabulous statement piece with chalk paint. It’s grey with detailed metallic gold birdies – what’s not to love? It’s on sale at £240.
I’m not sure I’d have a place for this in my teeny tiny home, but wouldn’t this brighten up a hallway a treat? The 1960s-style sideboard, for sale at £490, has been upcycled with a splash of colour and the handles are brilliantly disguised – but there’s more than enough storage space inside for any living space.
A kitchen trolly – how marvelous. This 1920s French vintage trolley would look pretty good filled to the rafters with cookbooks and my extensive collection of battered Good Food magazines. It’s listed on FurnitureEtc for £365, and is in showroom condition. We likey!
