Crazy for Cubes

Ever since the terms "organization" and "de-cluttering" became big buzz words, the production and use of cubes has been on a steady rise.  If there's a retailer that sells any type of storage product, chances are, they sell cubes.  I've even jumped on the cube bandwagon for my office, my daughter's bed room and the kids' play room.  I wouldn't be surprised if cubes ended up in my son's bedroom as well, but there's no need, or room, for them...yet.  So, what's so great about cubes?  What isn't?!  They're deeper than a traditional bookcase so they can hold a wider variety of things, like baskets, bins, totes and other storage items within the storage item itself.  They're graphically aesthetic, and a lot of cube-designed furniture can be arranged in many configurations to serve a variety of purposes and work in different rooms.  Have you been bitten by the cube bug?  I'd love to hear the ways in which you've utilized this very modern geometrical shape in your home, office or any place in between.
