Having a productive work day starts with having a great space to work. Okay, okay maybe it starts with coffee before that, but we really believe that the best work happens when you're in a space that pleases your senses. Maybe that means burning a candle for an hour to refresh the air. Maybe that means wiping everything down with a Clorox wipe and having a clean slate, literally.
Whether you work from home or in an office, your desk is your haven. We think it deserves to be styled the same... way you might style your vanity or your coffee table, with fun accessories that also help you stay organized and on-task.
From fancy scissors (why not!) and lucite staplers to monogrammed sticky notes and gold pens—we found 15 stylish, functional and affordable pieces that will make your desk your new favorite place. (At least from 9 to 5...)

A sticky note never looked so good, right? We love all things personalized from Mark & Graham, but these cubes of notes strike us as particularly awesome. Treat yourself or give one as a gift—they can be personalized with names and monograms in an array of rich colors.

We can always count on Target's in-house brand, Threshold, to provide fun and stylish home accessories at an amazing price. To organize magazines (and mail!) buy a trio of these gold files and store them with the shorter end facing away from you. This creates a more streamlined appearance but you can still see what each one contains.

There's something really comforting about working by lamp light, isn't there? We always find so many cool and sleek decor and accessories from Zara Home, and this recent discovery has us swooning. The glass look could work with a shabby chic farmhouse aesthetic or a preppy, classic look, too. A less than $200, you get a lot of look without breaking the bank.

Did you even now a stapler could be this beautiful? We didn't, but thanks to Typo (a brand you'll find on Cotton On's website) we're now reeling from the glamour. Just imagine how much better you'll feel putting together that next report when you can use this stapler to do it.
