Our workspaces can sometimes be the least inspiring places in our lives- they are filled with piles of paper, scattered supplies, and a lamp whose origins are still unknown. When we spend hours a day at our desk, trying to advance our professional goals, we need to give ourselves a boost and create an area that will help us do our best work, rather than work against us. And lets face it, your office is cramping your new spring wardrobe’s style.

A couple of weeks ago, we gave you a few of our favorite images of workspace inspiration from our magazine along with a few tips. But if Pinterest is any indication, all the design examples in the world can’t get us to make that first step in a positive direction. So we’ve tried to make it even easier by rounding up a few of our top office essentials that will make any place look a lot more sophisticated. Each product on its own is stunning, and together even better, but if you are looking for more options, each one is linked to an online resource that is sure to have something that will be perfect for your new office design.

Don’t forget that we’d love to hear your tips for creating a sophisticated workspace… we are always open to more suggestions!
