While we may no longer be students, it is hard to repress the impulse to get yourself organized when September is around the corner (clad in a backpack and checkered skirt no less). To scratch that itch, we have teamed up with the
charming Montreal-based stationery boutique Boucle & Papier to serve you up some #BackToWork inspiration in the shape of three specially curated office looks.
Airy & Bright
Light wood tones, white and pastels are the dominant players in our first office look, combining to create an inviting and open workspace. Proven to create a more productive and creative environment, curved and rounded furniture, like our Bunny chair and Blum desk, were selected over items with straight and sharp edges. An unobtrusive and streamlined table lamp in similar tones, like the Egan, will allow you to direct light as required.
A decluttered and tidy desktop featuring only the essentials, like a planner and notepad from Rifle Paper Co. and notebooks from Mimi Hammer and Appointed Co., will help you focus on the tasks at hand and prioritize your workload. Keep all your accessories tucked away nicely in acrylic desk accessories for a polished yet ordered look.
Classic, structured and streamlined, our second look keeps colours and distractions to a minimum for a grown up and refined workspace. Rustic in finish and sturdy in style, the Frankfurt desk is the perfect foundation for this space with its neat drawers and sleek frame. Create a contrast in textures for added interest by pairing it with a modern fabric office chair, like the Tony. For a sophisticated finish, add complementary accessories in matt black, like a graphic abstract art print, our sculptural Hopper floor lamp, and a sleek waste bin.
An Umbra desk organizer keeps your Couple d'Idées project files and favourite Palomino pencils tucked away while a Les Gamines pencil case allows you to take them on the go to meetings or working sessions. A statement Sugar Paper pen combined with a sober notepad and binder from Appointed Co. lend sensible authority to your office demeanour.
Two parts glamorous and one part whimsical, this look is all about adding a touch of luxury (and magic) to your workspace. Selecting an oversized desk like the Tokyo creates drama, especially when paired with the romantic allure of the quilted Sandy chair. For added charm, choose an accent piece with a sophisticated feel, like the Elia table lamp with its rose gold sheen.
