REFRESH YOUR DESK WITH THESE CHIC ACCESSORIES
Whether you spent the last week at home or on a tropical vacation (jealous of you!), getting back into the swing of things can be tough. Need a quick fix to give you a little pep in your step? Consider revamping your desk with a clean-out (a crucial first step!) followed by some new accessories. While certainly not a cure for the back-to-work blues, I’ve always found that refreshing my workspace refreshes my energy at the same time – not to mention, it’s a perfect way to start a new year.
Fortunately, chic office supplies aren’t hard to find these days. From stylish pencil cups and a custom paperweight to an elegant Smythson planner (2023!) and more, there’s something for everyone. Below, a hit list of office essentials that are every bit as functional as they are stylish.
BRIDIE HALL BRUSH POT
Seemingly basic items like a pencil cup or a stapler should bring joy when you look at them. These tiny details make such a difference – especially if you’re logging long hours at your desk.
JAM PAPER DESK TAPE DISPENSER
Give ordinary items like a tape dispenser a well-designed upgrade. This one comes in over 10 colors. Pick your favorite.
BERNARD MAISNER PAPERWEIGHT
Add a personal touch to your desk with one of Bernard Maisner’s delightful paperweights. Make your choice of either a classic calligraphy style or opt for Maisner’s playful style for something a little more whimsical. You can’t go wrong.
AMANDA LINDROTH PARQUETRY BOXES
Be thoughtful about storage. These beautiful parquetry boxes are the perfect hideaway for unsightly (but necessary!) things like cords and chargers.
CECE BARFIELD INC JARDIN CACHE-POT
If you’re logging long hours at your desk, it’s important to bring a little bit of the outside in. Adding a plant or fresh flowers can really liven up a space and boost your mood. Go a step further and give your greenery a good home with this cache-pot.
RUSSEL + HAZEL ACRYLIC COLLATOR + BOOKEND
I love a two-for-one. This acrylic bookend also works as a collator, with dividers to accommodate files, mail, and more.
DIPTYQUE BAIES CANDLE
I like to burn a candle while I’m working at my desk. My very favorite is Baies from Diptyque. The scent is so divine. Once I’ve burned through the candle, I clean out the glass and then use it as a vessel for pens and markers.
VINTAGE TENNIS RACQUET TRAY
I’m a big believer that every space needs at least one vintage item. Whether it’s an antique lamp, a brass pen, or a simply a knick knack, a vintage touch shows personality and gives it that little something. This vintage tennis racquet-shaped ashtray is a perfect catchall for paperclips or loose change.
HAY PERFORATED BIN
A chic wastebasket does indeed exist.
