Guide to the best cubbies


Cubbies can be either a bunch of cubes stacked together or a bench with cubbies. I love the benches in an entry way where they doubles a place to sit and a place to store handbags and shoes. Use smaller cubbies in closets to stor smaller items like handbags and clutches.
