The Organized Pantry: Designer Kara Mann Launches a New Line of Pantry Storage Staples

April 4, 2022

We’ve been known to get a little worked up over pantry storage and organization (as anyone who’s read our book The Organized Home or visited its companion site can attest), so we were quite happy when we discovered that Kept, designer Kara Mann’s collection of utilitarian goods for the home (hampers, hangers, dish towels, and more), just launched a line of pantry storage products.

Of course, one can have a perfectly well-organized pantry using repurposed tomato sauce and jam jars (as many of us on staff do), but there’s something to be said for uniformity—especially if your pantry staples are displayed on open shelves. “It took me forever to put a pantry together that I was happy with—from finding the right products to living through all the mistakes along the way,” Kara tells us. Lucky for us, her mistakes have led to this elegant-looking collection of pantry storage wares.

Here’s a peek.
