I used to love back-to-school shopping at Staples, selecting my pens and composition notebooks and binders with care. I loved the ritual of it. (Did anyone else look forward to covering her textbooks in contact paper or kraft paper?). Nowadays, I still get a thrill out of desk accessories. Below, my desktop favorites:
FISKARS SCISSORS FOR SURE — THEY CUT NEARLY ANY MATERIAL (INCLUDING FABRIC AND FELT) SO MUCH BETTER THAN ANY OTHER DESKTOP SCISSOR
POPPIN ACCESSORY TRAYS FOR MY DRAWER (A NICE SHORT HEIGHT SO IT CLEARS EASILY)
BIGSO DESKTOP FILE BOXES — I ACTUALLY LINE THESE UP UNDERNEATH MY DESK WITH IMPORTANT PAPERWORK; THEY LOOK PRETTY SLEEK FOR WHAT THEY ARE
A BEAUTIFUL LITTLE WATERCOLOR FROM MY TALENTED GIRLFRIEND INSLEE
I USE THESE INEXPENSIVE PENCIL BOXES TO STOW ALL OTHER OFFICE SUPPLIES (TAPE, PAPER CLIPS, PENS, ETC) IN MY DESK CHAIR, WHOSE SEAT CAN BE REMOVED TO REVEAL STORAGE (GENIUS) — THE CHAIR IS FROM BALLARD’S AND IS SIMILAR TO THIS BUT THEY NO LONGER MAKE WITH STORAGE BENEATH SEAT
OBSESSED WITH THIS STANDING IPHONE CHARGER
I am hoping to one day soon upgrade my desk (which I’ve had since college and is, frankly, on its last legs), and I would cherish one of the gorgeous custom ones from CEH. A few others I love at slightly more attractive pricepoints:
For a child or teen’s room, I love this leaning Sawyer desk from C&B. It’s so reasonably priced and so practical in a small space! You can even add leaning bookcases to flank each side and achieve a cool built-in effect for under $500. I’m a HUGE fan of the Sawyer collection, which they seem to have just relaunched because they were not available for a few months; we use their larger bookcases in our living room and always get questions about them. You cannot beat that price!
P.S. Nursery finds.
