Although it may not be at the top of your list of registry priorities, having super sleek and chic desk accessories can make all the difference in a home office or even just a small work space. For those times you just aren't in the mood to sit down and plug away, having a cheery and stylish space in which to do that work makes things just a little easier.
Maybe you've had your eye on some rose gold scissors, an acrylic stapler, perchance a modern brass file folder holder, but just couldn't bring yourself to pay over $30 for something so utilitarian. That's the beauty of your registry! You can put some truly dream items on it that will be perfect for group gifting (bigger things, like bikes or a large piece of furniture), but you can also put things that are smaller extras that you wouldn't buy for yourself.
Plus, we are big proponents of having everything (or as much as you can) that is useful in your home not only serve a purpose, but also be beautiful enough to leave out on your counter, desk, or coffee table. To that end, here are eight super-chic accessories that will add both beauty and function to your workspace.
