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.

Berra Card Stand

The name might refer to a landslide on a Swiss mountain, but you can appreciate gravity on a smaller and safer scale with this card stand that keeps your papers organized. Wooden counterweights loosely set on a sloped base will hold your papers or cards upright where you may enjoy them- or keep them handy for reference- and the Japanese oak will look fine on any desktop surface.

Suburbia Wall Storage

If you’re in need of wall storage and haven’t yet fallen in love with the Uten.Silo ($395), then maybe you’ll like the Suburbia by Seletti. When viewed from its edge, a small neighborhood with fences, trees, and homes appears. That novel detail does well when hung vertically, as it provides plenty of nooks and crannies to store all sorts of things in the office, bathroom, or entryway.

Wall Pockets

Need a small container or two to hold those odds and ends? Check out these powdercoated, geometric Wall Pockets. They’d work well in the entryway for keys and mail or around your workspace to catch pens, pencils, and other supplies. And, yes, it’d be better if the mounting hardware wasn’t visible, but remember, each pocket is $9.

If you’ve ever had a bundle of pens, pencils, and/or markers beside you while drawing or sketching, you know how it takes a little bit of time to find the right implement each time you change your selection.

Desk set, Matte Black

If there are multiple paperclips and post-it notes scattered about your desk, you and I have something in common. Maybe we should consider these handcrafted paper boxes by Timothy Wikander of MaterialMaterial. In addition to the desk set you see above, there’s also a small box w/lid and a large box w/lid, any of which is sure to hide/store our miscellany with subtle style. Each box is constructed from 2 mm grey board (the same material used in hardbound book covers) and coated in smooth matte textured card stock.

Standard Magnets

If only small, turned, wooden magnets existed, we could place them upon any metal surface and know that our papers, notes, and tear-outs would be shown as an elegant web of ideas (all due to the uniform simplicity of the magnets, of course) thus allowing our brains to settle upon brilliant results previously unknown. Oh, wait, they do exist, available from Fort Standard in a set of six, no less, and feature very strong rare-earth magnets, so they’ll hold up all manner of things (keys, perhaps?) with no problem. Nothing stopping those brilliant results now.

Luis Organizer

I’ve long admired the Uten.Silo, but somehow can’t bring myself to pay the $475 for organized bliss. The Luis Organizer isn’t a whole lot less in terms of the damage done to your wallet, but it provides the same sort of function with a minimal, geometric purity, and is handmade in Barcelona by OLI13 (so you won’t see it around as much, if you care about that sort of thing).
