It is very easy to see clothing inspired by knitting styles in Anthropologie (or vice versa) but usually when we see knitting in furniture store catalogs, like Crate and Barrel, it is usually as accessories in the photos. For example, balls of yarn artfully placed in a basket.
After receiving the recent CB2 catalog (Crate and Barrel uber-modern catalog) I noticed a few felted boxes that reminded me of ones located in the Mason Dixon Knitting book.
If you are interested in making some felted and decorative storage containers, check a few of these out:
Felted Alien Egg (ok, I couldn't resist including this one)
