Best Bet: Property Metallic Sack

New Yorkers find endless ways to artfully conceal their clutter: storage ottomans, six-drawer platform beds, underused ovens. Another option: this Italian-crafted metallic sack. Available in five different sizes, each sack is made of deceptively durable raffia and can handle everything from the daily dump of your keys to a heap of holiday-wrapping supplies to a week’s worth of laundry. Despite the paperlike texture—which, incidentally, means they can be folded up and stashed away with your other surplus items—the ecofriendly bags are tear-resistant and have a washable exterior.
