  • Taking 'modular' to the next level: Module R

    Here at Way Basics, we encourage individualization and customization through our modular zBoards, allowing our customers to not only select, but design their own furniture to satisfy both organizational needs, and creative ones. With that said, we'd like to introduce one of our awesome retailers! Module R is a fantastic gallery that takes the idea of the "Age of Personalization" and brings it into design and art, blurring the line between items that are mass-produced facsimiles and unique, personalized artifacts. Check out their website to learn more about Donald Rattner, their founder, and their fresh and much-needed role as a "central marketplace where customizable and transformable design (and art) from around the globe could be presented as a coherent body of work." Be sure to stop by and check them out if you're ever in the Brooklyn area!

  • Lightweight zBoard Shelving Helps 3Seams Help Haiti


    3SeamsWe saw this photo of 3Seams posted on our Facebook wall. It captured an amazing shot of people coming together, working together, building something. When we asked more about the organization and why Way Basics products were used, we were touched and inspired by the cause Inga Swope started. Traveling to Haiti, she used Way Basics products for it's lightness. How ingenious and creative to solve the challenge of maximum luggage weights when you fly. Take a moment to read Inga's story and help her share 3Seams' journey.

    ‘3seams’ came to be over the course of about 4 years.  A passion had been growing within our founder and director, Inga Swope, for women and children around the world.   At the same time, as a mom of young children, she had a great passion for helping to grow global perspective and compassion within our next generations here in America.  As she watched our culture become more and more materialistic, indulgent, and self-centered, she realized that our young upcoming generations had very little concept of how incredibly fortunate they were, and in the same respect, very little concept of the extreme poverty and struggle going on around the world.

    (This became the question.)

    How could she tackle both of these passions with creativity?

    (And this became the answer.)

    ‘3seams’ is an organization dedicated to both issues.  Our organization creates opportunities for people to purchase clothing and accessories for their children while at the same time supplying a child in need with an identical piece.  Each piece of clothing is made in sets of two and all pieces are sewn by our Haitian seamstress program!  One of these pieces goes home with the buyer and one is donated by ‘3seams’ to an organization that ensures a child in need will receive it!  Not only does a child somewhere around the world receive a much needed item and someone else a much needed job, but the child here in America knows that there is a child in another part of the world wearing the exact same dress or pants or shirt.

    Our hope is that through job creation in the developing world, ‘3seams’ can put a small dent in the global poverty crisis as well as give families here in North America the platform to discuss poverty and other global issues with their children!

    ‘3seams’ is a Non-Profit 501c3 Organization.  For more information or to make a tax-deductable donation towards our program in Haiti, please visit,  or .

  • Mom Trends Reviews Way Basics Storage Cube

    "It’s no Ethan Allen, but I think that might be a good thing. These products are made of 99% post consumer recycled paper that are just as strong as conventional furniture. I don’t plan on sitting on my cube, but it seems to be holding up just fine against my pounds of papers."

  • FAQ Spotlight: Displaying and Anchoring to the Wall

    Can I display my Way Basics furniture on the wall?

    Yes, of course you are able to display your Way Basics products on the wall with the support of L brackets or other support hardware beneath your furniture. Make sure to support your Way Basics furniture from the bottom, as these products draw their strength from their vertical construction. The zBoard can be used like other wood products by drilling on its main surfaces, but drilling on the edges is not recommended. Hey, I just came up with a new design idea!
    How to display storage cube on wall


    How can I secure my Way Basics product from tipping if I am concerned about children's safety?

    We recommend you secure as shown below, with L-brackets and screws into studs in your wall.  This hardware is not included, but is readily available at your local hardware store.
