A day at the Design Lab is never void of the unexpected. We’re always on our toes, and we’re so lucky we have fantastic vendors that are there for us at a moment’s notice. Our latest superhero vendor is The Container Store, whose newest location here in Sacramento is a 23,000 square foot haven of pure organizational bliss. We were in the midst of wrapping up a project with our clients, parents-to-be, when baby decided to make his entrance early. When our clients welcomed their bundle of joy, The Container Store came to the rescue and within a few hours we had a beautifully organized nursery closet. It’s safe to say they made our client’s little one feel especially welcome in his new nursery.
It all started a few weeks ago when we finalized details of our client’s nursery. A few days away from their due date, we scheduled a time with The Container Store for an elfa Closet System installation. Little did we know that the nursery’s main resident was ready to see his space a bit earlier than expected. A frantic call from our clients at the hospital launched us into panic mode. But the baby wasn’t supposed to be here for a week! Where will he put all of his adorable onesies and infant-sized shoes? In the midst of our frenzy we decided to give The Container Store a call and see what could be done. After a breezy phone call and quicker-than-lightning installation, we texted our clients (now new parents) letting them know that their bouncing baby boy would come home to a beautiful space, completed with The Container Store’s sleek + clean elfa closet system.
We are so head over heels for the baby’s nursery, with its rustic accent wall and cozy reading nook. With endless choices in every color imaginable, a trip to The Container Store can be both thrilling and a bit overwhelming, but we were excited by the possibilities and decided on a super clean and compact closet system—perfect for new parents. By having all the products available to view in store, we were able to pick out our elfa accessories with ease. In just a little over an hour, layouts were set, drawers were picked, and we were on our way to getting a closet ready for an exciting new arrival.
Our clients have had more than enough great things to say about the easily-installed elfa reach-in closet. Fully-adjustable, the shelving and rack system can grow and shift throughout the years (if only their boy’s clothing could do the same!). The mesh hanging drawers keep tiny socks and onesies front and center, while supportive upper shelving provides a hangout for extra books, linens, and storage bins for toys. Focusing on their new family, we wanted our clients to be as stress-free as possible. Thanks to The Container Store, our clients can shift their energy to cuddle time instead of dealing with an untamable newborn closet.
