Fall In Love With The Smart Style Of The Yamazaki Home Collection At West Elm

Yamazaki was established well over a century ago and began as a family-owned company in Japan. While its headquarters are still in East Asia, the longtime manufacturer and retailer is also known for selling its wares at West Elm (via Yamazaki). 

These days, with a majority of household products remaining the same for generations, Yamazaki says its aim is to elevate the industry with a new, higher standard of product design. As such, it's known for taking basic, ordinary items and sprucing them up so that they're more desirable and aesthetically pleasing.

In addition to this transformational work, company officials believe even the smallest home goods can have a huge impact by helping to relieve stress and make life more joyful. To that end, Yamazaki continues to release more and more design elements and products every year. From organization items to aesthetic furniture pieces, here are a few products that will make you fall in love with their style over and over again.

Bathroom organizers

One major aspect of Yamazaki's signature collection is organization, which includes household items like its toilet paper stand and tray to help better tidy up bathrooms. At $36, you can buy this product in either white or black. The toilet paper holder can store up to three rolls, while the tray is around 6.3 inches wide and 4.7 inches in depth. It can hold several items, such as phones, hygiene products, or jewelry.

Not for you, but still looking for ways to organize your toiletries? Then consider the toilet paper storage container, which runs for $56 in the color white. This product is a little more versatile and can fit up to 12 rolls. Additionally, it also features a flat surface on top where you can store other items, like phones or a small alarm clock, should you have the desire.

Conversely, if you store your towels and washcloths in the bathroom, you may be interested in this tower interlocking towel organizer, which is available in either white or black and costs $35. Not to mention, with the ability to interlock multiple organizers into one another, it can store your entire towel collection and then some. Made of steel, this product is 11.8 inches tall and 5.7 inches in diameter.

Multiple shoe racks

In addition to keeping your bathroom orderly, Yamazaki also sells a variety of shoe racks to keep your footwear coordinated. For example, this line adjustable shoe rack sells for $42 and is available in either black or white. Made of steel, this model can hold up to eight pairs of shoes and is 5.9 inches wide, 5.9 inches in height, and can be adjusted to stretch between 15.9 inches and 27.25 inches in diameter.

In need of more space? Then you may be interested in this tiered shoe rack, which costs $125 and features a wooden top; you can choose either a black or white option. There are five rows for shoe storage; however, you can also use the floor space underneath to get six rows of usage. This product has a weight limit of 6.6 pounds and sits 26 inches wide, 34.2 inches tall, and 9.8 inches in diameter.

Another option is this three-tiered extended shoe rack that sells for $88 and is available in either black or white. At its standard size, it's 16.1 inches wide, 9.8 inches in diameter, and 17.9 inches tall. However, if you choose to extend the rack, it will be 27.6 inches wide while maintaining the same diameter and height.

Décor that serves a purpose

There are also many items in this collection that are not only aesthetically pleasing, but also practical. For example, this tower bread box sells for $120 and is available in either black or white. Made of steel and containing a magnetic lid, it's 15.7 inches wide, 13.6 inches in diameter, and 9.4 inches tall. The top is flat to allow for more storage.

Another appealing product is the tower printer stand, which costs $12 and comes in either black or white. At 18.9 inches wide, 7.5 inches tall, and 14.6 inches in diameter, this product is made of steel and contains wheels, allowing you to move it around with ease. Ideally for a printer, you can also use it as an added storage component to your desk.

Finally, if you're in need of a place to store your keys, purchase this magnetic key hook for $29. According to Vivint, more than 20 million people lose their car and house keys every year; therefore, it's important to have a designated spot to keep them safe. Available in either brown or beige, this product has five hooks with a small storage compartment behind it. It's 7.1 inches wide, 3.7 inches tall, and 1.2 inches in diameter.
