I love products that have a vintage look to them. I also love products that can perform something more than simply looking pretty. Ta-da! This box fits the bill perfectly. I hate remotes, they sure do take away from your home decor, unless your home decor is early boy bachelor pad (which comes complete with an ultra-suede recliner and shag carpet). So, this ethnic-inspired piece would look great on the den coffee table AND gobbles up those pesky (but necessary) remotes for the TV, DVD, sound system……unless of course losing the remote in the sofa cushion is more of your style!
