Everyone has inexplicable pet peeves; one of mine happens to be Kleenex boxes that completely clash with their general surroundings. A very plain, monotone box surely does no harm, but tissue companies seem gung ho on getting a colorful cornucopia of flowers, zigzags and curlicues into our homes, and this must be dealt with. Luckily, these tissue boxes cleverly circumnavigate the garish Kleenex box problem:
The suave stainless steel SÃ„VERN from IKEA is like a little lockbox for your tissuesâ€”and a bargain, at $11.99.
This is probably the only thing from Jonathan â€œThe King of Lacquerâ€ Adler we can afford. $38.
This boutique box nicely pairs stainless steel and bamboo. Perfect for the bathroom, kitchen, office or wherever else you might want it. $16.49.
With the transparent holder, youâ€™ll never be caught unawares when your Kleenex is running low. $14.99.
Should you happen to have $45 laying around explicitly for a tissue box, we wholeheartedly recommend this stunning Japanese Hinoki cypress model from Design Within Reach. $45.
For those itching to ditch a box altogether (and donâ€™t live in a dust factory), we present the Bridge holder from CB2. $14.95.
