So, you finally got that fancy corner office and plaque on your door. You’ve made it. The only problem is that your office is a messy disgrace. Nobody is going to take you seriously if you have pens, papers and random cords strewn about your office. Luckily, all you need to tame that disaster is by purchasing a great desk organizer. Here are a few good-looking options to consider.
When you’re trying to do something, it’s always a good idea to look for the simplest solution. This is very true when organizing a desk. The One Forty Three Desk Organizer has simplicity down pat. This molded plywood organizer is the epitome of minimalism while keeping your desk clean of clutter. The natural wood veneer comes in walnut, teak, oak and cherry, so you’re guaranteed to find the best one to fit your personality.$115
Desk trays are simple, minimal ways to bring some order to the loose items you have around your desk. It doesn’t hurt when the trays themselves are attractive, as is the case here with these solid brass numbers. Made by Oji Masanori, a Japanese company that has perfected the art over the last 100+ years, the trays are sold in sets of three to help organize pens and pencils, note cards, paperclips and much more.$55
Just like a golf caddy carries your clubs, the desk caddy carries all of your pens, pencils, scissors and paperclips. And by “carry” we mean that it holds them, thereby making your workspace clear of clutter at all times. It’s available in three different sizes depending on your need. Also, you’ll be helping the environment while keeping your office clean because it’s made from reclaimed wood.$46
Ergonomics are key when picking out the right desk organizer for you. You want it to be as efficient as possible because, as they say, “time is money.” The Lifta is perfect for those looking to save time looking for lost pens and rulers. The main function of a desk organizer is to keep your desk free of work-related clutter. The Lifta Desk Organizer is simple, sleek and comes in Baltic Birch, Oak and Ash.TBD
If previous desk organizers were based on simplicity, the Tamm Dock & Desk Organizer is based on function. Not only is this a great way to de-clutter your desk, it doubles as an iPhone dock. While most organizers have space for all of your desk-related paraphernalia, this desk organizer has a special place to snugly fit your phone as well as a place to tuck away your keyboard and mouse (if you still have one of those).$49
Everything looks cooler when it’s made of metal. This organizer is no exception. This metallic, aluminum alloy construction box is the perfect way to clean up your desk while also looking pretty awesome. The volcano mouth is the perfect place to keep your pens, pencils, markers, staplers and anything else safe and sound, while other, smaller items can be stored underneath.$51
While this wild piece is called a “Pencil Holder,” we like to think of it more as a holder for almost any workspace utencil, as the varying size flutes allow for storage of a range of items. Drop in your pens, add a pair of scissors, and keep a ruler at the ready. It even looks attractive empty.$82
