    I am looking for a box with a lid-modern theme…either Red, Black, Brown or yellow (can be combination also)….

    Would like it to hold the remotes for the electronics in the household…our longest one is 10″….

    Do you have anything or any ideas?

    Thank you

    Hi Joyce,

    I honestly just found your comment on my blog! I’m not sure if you’ve already found a box to suit your needs but I often use boxes that look like faux books to hold remotes on the coffee table. We have a few of them in the shop but you can also find them online. They come in all sorts of styles.

    Best of luck!
