If you follow us on Facebook, you heard some exciting news last week about our new office space; a renovated three-story school house on the Eastside (above). As renovation takes way to turn a single floor of individual classrooms into a collaborative studio, we can’t help but pull interior elements that evoke the back-to-school vibe. Because we move in this Fall, there couldn’t be better timing to think about notepads and freshly sharpened pencils to deck out the new studio. For a fresh schoolhouse look of your own, here are our top picks for an office space that’s sure to bring home straight-A’s.
1. Sharpen those geography skills well before the first bell rings with the new Cities Wallpaper by Rifle Paper Co. Hand-illustrated skylines of famous cities are printed on a parchment background, perfect for a desk nook.
2. This olive green compartment tray from School House Electric is sure to bring you back to long lunch lines and chocolate milk straight from the carton. We love the idea of using it to hold desk accessories and knick knacks.
3. You won’t mind counting down the hour with this handsome wall clock from Lemnos. The molded plywood frame keeps it lightweight and reminiscent of old classroom desks.
4. Keep textbooks and references in order with Pigeon and Poodle’s set of three caged baskets. Metal handles allow for easy transport and integrated name plates are perfect for custom labeling.
5. The GI Joe lunchbox has been reincarnated into this smooth olive green desk chair byWhite on White. Added bonus? The molded fiberglass seat will make waiting for recess a little less painful.
6. Never forget an assignment with Sideshow Press’ desktop accessories, inspired by 1950s stationery. Check out their full array of colorful options to make your desk space truly your own.
7. West Elm’s Mid-Century Desk in white is a modern spin on the classic teacher’s desk. With tapered legs and three drawers, this piece is one apple away from being the perfect combination of form and function.
8. Shed light on your late-night studies with this school bus yellow table lamp from Caravan Pacific. All of their lighting is handmade in the USA and fully customizable.
