What better way to set your desk apart from others at the office then with unique décor? This can range from LED lighting to desktop gadgets. To really help set your desk apart, we rounded up some of our favorite 3D printed desktop knickknacks from the Shapeways store.

Pixel Busts: What is cooler than a bust of Apple co-founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak? A 3D pixel bust of Apple's founding fathers. Is there any better way to show off your Apple love? I doubt it.

Interlocked Cubes: While not the most complicated design, these 3D printed interlocking cubes not only make for an intriguing piece, but also for lots of fun. I can personally attest that this little toy is a great procrastination tool.

MC Escher Face: This face was inspired by MC Escher's iconic artwork. The fact that this unique piece takes Escher's work and recreates it in 3D makes it that much more of a conversation piece.

"Rubik's" Pyramid: The Rubik's Cube has been around for years, and despite its simplicity almost everyone still is amused by it. Replace that with this Rubik inspired pyramid, and hours of distraction and entertainment will be looming in your not too distant future.
