Desk Organizers

BassamFellows Sharp Series

Yes, the boxes shown above are a bit skewed to the right; it’s not in your head. Each Sharp Box is carved from a solid piece of wood (there’s part of the price explanation) and intended as a modular system for desktop or bathroom. The slightly slanted nature defines the collection and adds a note of humor to your small storage needs.

Accordion Document Holder

No matter how organized your paper-free life might be, there are still documents and papers that you need to keep on hand (just in case zombies destroy the power grid). And, what better way to keep them organized than with an accordion file that has a nice orange-to-white color gradation? An elastic band keeps the 10 pockets closed.

Metal Folders by Debra Folz

For those papers and magazines that need a home, consider a folder- not a flimsy paper folder that sits on your desk- a metal folder that mounts on the wall. These aluminum folders by Debra Folz easily mount to the wall, giving you that extra space to organize your important documents. Can you see several scattered on the wall next to your desk? Because I sure can, and I don’t even know where you work. Available in silver or white.

Kukka Blocks Desk Set

Remember the Kukka Blocks? Well, they’re now on a slight sale- and yes, it’s a very slight sale- but you’ll at least be able to buy a few coffees with the savings, so that’s something. Because the Kukka set is modular, you can move the 4 pieces around to make it fit your own personal preferences. Also available directly from Kukka for £ 60.

The Made Collection

Here’s another chance to back a project on Kickstarter, and this time you’ll end up with some lovely wood home accessories. The V-Tray and Bowl are shown above, and the S&P Shakers, SQ Trivet, and Paddle Coathooks (shown below) are equally impressive for their simplicity and craftsmanship. By pre-ordering pieces of this collection you’re backing the current and future work of David Okum, and, if these pieces are anything to go by, that’s a sound investment.

Multiples Pencil Holder

Surprise, surprise, what do we have here from a retailer that some of us completely forget about? It’s a metal pencil holder done in the loveliest shades of blue and teal, at a rather reasonable price too. The only thing that would make it better is if the base or cylinders were magnetic, though that wouldn’t add much to the functionality, it would just make it more fun.

Copper Pencil Holder

This pencil holder may tempt those copper thieves lurking around your desk, so best keep implements sharpened and eyes alert. The higher-tiered levels will help order various sized pens and pencils, while the shallow levels would be perfect for smaller erasers, paperclips, and miscellany. There’s also a Copper Cup ($30) and Copper Tray ($73).

Table Island

Here’s a different sort of organizer that looks better being used than sitting empty. This ‘island’ will hold all manner of miscellany- phone, keys, wallet, devices- on its compressed cork landscape. There are three staggered dividers, any of which would also hold an iPad in easy reading position. It could live in the kitchen as a recipe reading stand or perhaps on your desk or entryway table as a charging station and catch-all for those important pocket contents.

Droog File Organizer

Toolbox by Arik Levy

Sure, we can hope to organize everything perfectly in neat stacks in drawers and other appropriate places, but sometimes it’s easier to just chuck it into a box, or even better, a toolbox. Store your scissors, tape, rulers, or whatever else you like to keep on hand in this open toolbox and move it from desk to worktable and back again with little fuss. Lots of colors to choose from too.

Postino Desk Accessories

Looking for a set of desk accessories? The Postino collection by Alexis Georgacopoulos are inspired by the folds of a paper envelope, if you haven’t already guessed. The open edges give the aluminum material “a conceptual lightness”, though I’m sure if you decide to throw them at anyone they’ll be appropriately heavy.
