I’ve been in need of a new hamper for about half a year now. Unfortunately, most hampers on the market are colorful mesh monstrosities that leave a lot to be desired on the style front. It took some digging, but here’s a sampling that’s fun, fashion-forward and reasonably priced.

Perfectly practical with its neutral tones and collapsible sides, this Michael Graves hamper for Target would work just about anywhere. Just $14.99.

Were I lucky enough to have a room solely devoted to the doing of laundry, then I would definitely fill it with these industrial hampers. Restoration Hardware is typically pricey, but the small hamper in this series is just $129—and looks like it would last forever.
