You should see my desk. It's a goddamn nightmare explosion of pens, business cards, empty coffee cups and random crap. These modular Desktructure organisers would more than do the job of sprucing things up.
They're pretty adorable too. One is a ship, another is a city, and the third one is a collection of warehouses. Each set has cups for pens and various compartments for other odds and ends. If you're organising, you might as well do it in a clever, well-designed way.
