Rule No. 5 of the Remodelista Manifesto: "Ordinary utilitarian items, such as wastebaskets and scrub brushes, can—and should—be as pleasingly elegant as center-of-attention pieces." Case in point: classic pedal bins from a small workshop in northwest Germany. Manufactum offers a trio of models, but if you're truly obsessed, consider contacting Erpa Metall directly to access their line of jewel-toned trash bins.   Above: Erpa Metall  trash bins, which have been made for 80 years in the Erpa workshop in northwest Germany, feature powder-coated enamel exteriors and high-gloss stainless steel lids (and appealing retro stamped logos). The 20-Liter Metal Pedal Bin (far left) is €188 ($221.45) and the 15-Liter Metal Pedal Bin (center) is €158 ($186) from Manufactum.  Above: The Five-Liter Metal Bathroom Waste Bin is €78 ($91.90) from Manufactum.
