Desk Organizers

Nest Office Caddy

Hmm, this little office caddy has caught my eye with its simple compartments for those small(ish) desk essentials. However, it’s not just for paperclips and rubber bands; stack a few for extra storage or use the steel frame as a stand for your phone or tablet. The frame may also be used as a handle if you tend to move around your home or office to work.

Think of it for displaying your current project or paperwork or for showcasing photos and notes. Made of slipcase stoneware, each stand can be grouped with others to provide a larger display.

Cargo Box Container by Alessi

You need more storage options for your stuff? What are you, a pack rat? Just kidding, I know you aren’t- everything you have is absolutely necessary… right? Maybe the Cargo Box will work best to corral the clutter, as it’s shaped like a classic toolbox with a few inner compartments and a thin wooden handle for easy carrying. If you prefer more inner compartments, be sure to consider the Toolbox by Arik Levy as well.

My Spot Bauhaus Memento Display

Hey, how about a string, a weight, and some anchors to hold up your important photos and notes? That sounds dreadfully dull, but it’s not, I promise. My Spot is just a very, very minimal approach to a pin board. Gravity keeps the string taut, allowing the anchors to hold your postcards, calendar pages, and notes within reach and perfectly displayed on a simple, horizontal line. Switch out your items easily without succumbing to the mess of a traditional bulletin board.

.ORG Deskscape System

Now, don’t have an apoplectic fit when you see the price tag along with the image above- there’s more than just a small wooden container for your odds and ends. Rather, the price is for the whole .ORG Deskscape System from L & G Studio (a.k.a. Ladies & Gentlemen Studio) in collaboration with Pat Kim. Four modules can be combined in different ways to suit your needs: there’s a mail organizer with adjustable metal dividers, a zig zag catch all tray, a cork block for pinning messages and cards, and the double container for smaller items you see above. Take a look and tell me if you’re not tempted to organize your desktop immediately afterwards.

Brass Desk Set

How do you get yourself excited about work now that summer is over? You could think about your fall wardrobe, cooler weather, and the approaching winter holidays, or you could buy some new desk organizers. I vote for the latter, as it brings about less stress. The four-piece Brass Desk Set by Danish designer Trine Andersen (of Ferm Living) might get you to tidy up those odds and ends and make your desk look like it belongs to someone who needs a promotion.

Crescendo Wall-mounted Tackboard

No matter how hard we all try to minimize bits and pieces of paper and cards and invites, they show up unbidden in our bags and on our countertops. What to do? Don’t buy a normal (boring) cork board to keep yourself organized, buy this tackboard with stripes! That’s right, it’s a tackboard, made of thin strips of industrial mill-made paper, all of which are stacked tightly together for the express purpose of holding your miscellany all in one place.

Handy Gold Caddy

If you’re going to have anything on your desk or dining table called a ‘caddy’ you might as well make it gold, or gold-plated, at least. A black pine handle shows off the oh-so-shiny gold, and it could hold your mail, pens and notepads just as easily as flatware and napkins. Less is usually more, so don’t go overboard with other gold accessories. You don’t want to blind coworkers or family members with your show of wealth, now, do you?

Kesito Desktop Organizer

This Kesito desktop organizer wins points for versatility; three diamond-shaped pieces can be arranged to suit your needs. Place your pens and pencils one piece, your paperclips and other small sundries in another, and then the last can act as a small stand for your phone, business cards, or correspondence. Move them around as you see fit. And, it appears that there’s free international shipping at the moment, so consider that when you’re soaking in the price tag.

Walnut Keyboard Tray

What’s so great about a keyboard tray? Well, nothing if you’re a strict minimalist and don’t have a bunch of little things rattling around on your desk. However, if you’re like the rest of us, you could use a small spot to stash a few pens, paperclips, extra batteries and other little miscellany that has no home. A slim profile keeps the ergonomics of Apple’s keyboard and the natural black walnut will look good with almost anything.
