20 Below: A Tray from Zara Home

If you are a fan of clean design, you likely have a tray or two around your home to corral small items such as oil and vinegar, makeup, or trinkets by the bed. A tray instantly adds order to a sideboard, counter, or coffee table, and I’m certainly a fan.

This white tray from Zara Home caught my eye today.
