Glam up your desk with stylish accessories

August 10th, 2009 in Trends

Monday morning again! Did you know that Britons are among the hardest working people in Europe, with only Romanians and Bulgarians putting in longer hours? According to a report by the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions workers in full-time jobs put in an average of 41.4 hours every week last year – almost two hours more than the average among the 15 original members of the European Union.

We’re clearly a hard working lot. Surely we deserve to be surrounded by beautiful and gorgeous things at all times? I’ve had a look around and found some great accessories that will definitely glam up your desk.

Clippine clips

Beautifully-presented Italian tins, divided internally into three sections, each holding a different type of clip.

Luxury desk set

This luxury desk set includes three very unique and tactile handmade porcelain pods with an inner glazed finish of metallic black. Marvelous little orbs!


This cute hedgehog paper clip holder – also known as Dozi – will add a splash of fun and colour to any desk as well as keeping all those pesky paper-clips tidy! I have one in bright green, great for playing with while I’m looking for blogging inspiration!

Available in three colours, these funky pencil holders will look great on any desk.

Tower of clips by Barbara Flanagan

Designed by Barbara Flanagan for MoMA, the Tower of Clips transforms clutter into an organised, moveable display. All manner of things can be hung from this tree, business cards, photos and notes.

Essey Pen Pen Desk Tidy

And finally, a nice little talking point for when people stop by your desk. A smaller pencil pot version, but otherwise an identical replica of the popular and award winning Bin Bin design.

Have a wonderful Monday. From the whole team at Blinds 2go.
