Good Questions: Where Do I Find Reasonably Attractive Desk Accessories?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

I’m finally getting serious about my home office. Where can I find reasonably priced, reasonably attractive desk accessories, like in/out boxes, desk blotters, and file sorters?

I feel like a chump paying $10 for a mesh basket at Staples, but can’t afford to spend $50 for a pencil cup at Levenger. So far the best I’ve seen are the boring but affordable accessories at Restoration Hardware. Are there any better options? Thanks, Josh

We have found this category difficult and some of our best stuff has come from dusty old stationary stores down here in Tribeca. We have also avoided matchy matchy desk sets in favor of unique items and even found items for holding pens and paper. We recommend looking at Mxyplyzyk in the West Village, The Museum of Useful Things, the Bodum Store in Chelsea, Oriac, and Edge Modern for starters. MGR
