I love the vintage, homey look of wire and antiqued metals. I’m not talking about foodservice-style chrome wire shelving (though that’s great for a utilitarian look, and I have a little unit in my dining room that’s currently holding an impressive array of pans and appliances). Today, I'm talking about the farmhouse-y , oxidized metal wall grids, egg baskets, shelves and racks that instantly give a lived-in feel to any kitchen.

Here are a few of my favorite ways to incorporate this old-fashioned look to help organize modern spaces.

Wire Shaded Light from Cox & Cox. Not an organizer, but I love the look!

Lucky you if you’re in the U.K. — home goods store Cox & Cox has tons of swoon-worthy wire items I wish were available stateside! The tiered storage rack above caught my eye, as it’s a beautiful way to store produce, houseplants and herb gardens, or jars of pasta and grains.

Antique Style Wire Egg Basket from Amazon.com

In the U.S., most of us tend to store our eggs in the refrigerator. However, if fridge space is at a premium and you use up your eggs within a week or so, you may want to consider storing them out on the counter instead. An antique-style wire egg basket is perfectly at home on an open shelf or counter.

If you’re able to install a pot rack in your kitchen, consider these custom-made beauties from Ann Morris Antiques. Available in oxidized nickel, they do double-duty, combining lighting fixtures and storage in one piece. Hung over a kitchen island, they are as striking as they are useful.

Finally, here's a cute little organizer from Pottery Barn. This unit is equally at home in the kitchen or a gardening shed. The hanging bar at the bottom is perfect for hand towels or an apron, too.
