You dig your Nelson Swag Leg desk. You rave about your SAYL chair. But when was the last time you bragged about your stapler? Spread the love to the desktop tools you use on an everyday basis by exploring these go-sites for well-designed office supplies.
D.E: Tiny, but packing a powerful punch, this selection from two Australian industrial designers (above) includes impressive paperweights, pen cups, and other items that might distract you (in a good way) during your workday.
Poppin: If office supplies were candy, it would probably come in Poppin form. With every possible office product in every possible color represented, you’ll find just the hue your desk needs.
RAD AND HUNGRY: Travel the world’s office supply selection (think notebooks from Trinidad, ball points from Turkey and France, chunky erasers from Spain) with limited-edition assortments compiled by this Seattle start-up.
Canoe: This smartly curated shop from Portland, OR, offers up simple, sophisticated desktoppers (we like the Xylobook Blank Book made from salvaged hardwood scraps).
Vetted: It’s obvious that a graphic designer opened this online boutique: the picks are well crafted, modern, and chic (check out the nice lines on this Craft Design Technology stapler, for example).
