If you’re looking for design-forward organization items to add to your workspace, you’re in luck. West Elm just launched a partnership with MUJI that highlights the Japanese retailer’s modern home goods and accessories, all of which can help improve your WFH life for the winter ahead.

The curated selection features nearly 100 organizational and cleaning essentials, most with an average price point of $20. The collaboration makes a lot of sense: MUJI is best known for its stock of functional, quality goods and signature minimalist design, which can be woven seamlessly into West Elm’s aesthetic. And with many people working from home more, these items could give your office space the refresh it needs.

Here are nine standout items from the new collection that we’re adding to our cart ASAP:

2. Muji Acrylic Storage with Drawers

It’s amazing what a little extra storage can do to any tight space. These clear acrylic drawers are the perfect option for keeping all those pesky loose items organized on your desktop, bathroom counter, or dresser. Choose from a single drawer as well as two or five drawers, with a removable lid that instantly turns the top drawer into a catch-all tray in cluttered spaces.

3. Muji Gel Ink Pens (Set of 6)

Even if you’re new to MUJI, you’ve still most likely heard of their fan-favorite gel ink pens. They’re the kind of pens people go out of their way to post reviews about, so you know it’s serious. These pens are known for how smooth they write, and they come in a variety of colors. The set of six has you covered with black, orange, red, and two shades of blue.

Because you can never have too many notebooks, we love this $4 wirebound option with dot grid pages. It’s perfect for bullet journaling, doodling, playing MASH, or, you know, taking diligent notes on your next Zoom call. Pair it with the $3 set of 5 stickies to make color-coding contents a breeze.

9. Muji Heat-Resistant Glass Tea Pot

As someone who always forgets they made tea until it’s oversteeped and already cold, this glass tea pot is a welcome addition to my overflowing cabinet of tea brewing supplies. It’s made of a clear, heat-resistant glass that’s easy to keep an eye on and gauge when your tea is done steeping so you can stay caffeinated throughout the workday.
