8 Calendars You Won’t be Embarrassed to Hang on Your Walls in 2020
As great as digital organization systems are for staying on top of meetings, parties, and appointments, there’s nothing like a good old fashioned wall calendar to anchor your workspace and help you really feel in control, especially at the start of a new year. Plus, calendars are also great for filling blank wall space, even in unlikely spots like the kitchen—particularly when they’re large in scale and, you know, part of the permanent collection at the MoMA like Massimo Vignelli’s Stendig shown above. Get your act together ASAP (if you haven’t already) with one of these eight paper picks below, which are much, much better than the calendars of yesteryear. We promise.
Modern Wall Calendar
Display your favorite pictures with this photo calendar that keeps loved ones nearby at all times. Simply choose the images you’d like to feature and then order your 12-month calendar (this would make a great gift idea, too). At the end of the year, you can tear all of the photos out and repurpose them as you please.
