Objects Of Design #178: Empire Wire Shower Tidy

Neat and tidy, tidy and neat

There’s nothing like fumbling around the floor of the shower with shampoo in your eyes looking for the conditioner, which is why one of these is so handy. For some reason they are all quite expensive but they are worth it. You can also buy the ones that stick ont the wall with suckers. My mother has one. About three times a year it falls of the wall with an almighty crash – always at 4 in the morning. It’s a wonder the woman hasn’t had a heart attack. This is fixed with screws. You can pile as much in as there is room for and you won’t get sticky shampoo residue round the bottom of the shower by the grouting. £108
