Takenaka Bento Boxes: A Colorful Choice For a Lighter Lunch

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

The Takenaka Bento Boxes are simple, and that’s what we like about them. They come in a bunch of fun colors, and they’re not too big — which makes them ideal for packing lighter lunches.

West Elm collaborated with Takenaka this year, and their versions are bigger than the regular Takenaka box (7.6 inches wide vs. 6.25 inches). But either size is very reasonable: large enough to get in a salad or a few side dishes, yet small enough to fit at the bottom of your bag. (No extra carrier required!) All in all, a great choice for a simple, yet pretty lunch container!
