Modern Desktop & Workspace Accessories

Organize and beautify your workspace desktop with these products and accessories

YAMAZAKI home Desk Organizer, White

Designed in Nara, Japan. Desk organizer and stationary holder. Its ash wood dowel handle, steel, powder-coated frame, and simple form are the epitome of Japanese minimalism meets Scandinavian-inspired design. That concept alone we love and YAMAZAKI’s well crafted execution delivers. We enjoy watching this brand’s seasonal new product designs.

Walnut Headphone Stand for your desktop & office

Modern Walnut Headphone Stand for Desktop & Office

Walnut in finish with an arch bridge shape, this sleek headphone stand safely holds most popular headphones, brands including Bose, Beats, Sony, Sennheiser, Razer, AKG, Logitech, etc. We love its smooth and stylish retro vibe. It’s like a functional sculpture on our desk. It helps keep the shape of some headphones, particularly larger ones. There’s extra room at the bottom to tuck headphone cables.

Acrylic Monitor Stand by AboveTEK

Solid, high-quality, rounded acrylic base for your computer monitor. Undercarriage space for your keyboard and desk accessories. We like its unibody design and ultimate statement in minimalism — transparency. Our kindergartener is certain it belongs to Wonder Woman. She has her own, we assured him.

Modern & Minimalist Office & Desk Cabinet Stands

Optimize your workspace and desktop in style
Stockpile 3-Drawer Mobile File Cabinet (yellow, also available in all white, black, and many other colors)

Stockpile 3-Drawer Mobile File Cabinet

This commercial grade office drawers on rollers is available in over a dozen modern and fun color combinations. We like its simple style, rounded edges, and that it fits — and rolls — under most desks. Use the bottom draw for paper files or larger storage — it supports both letter and legal sized hanging files. We also like that it comes pre-assembled.

Kartell Componibili Drawer

We love the Componibili Drawer’s timeless, iconic design. Quintessential form meets function. Its designer and manufacturer, Kartell, is an icon of modern Italian design style, founded in 1949. We also like the full access to inside storage via sliding doors versus drawers. Big bonus: it’s stackable. This low cabinet is a truly classic design object and is available in white, red, black, and a grayish silver.

Yamazaki Tower Printer Stand

Yamazaki Tower Printer Stand

Roll this steel, minimalist printer stand under your desk or remove the wheels for your desktop. Use the shelves for desktop printer paper, printer cartridges, and other computer and office accessories. We like the rounded edges and simple yet ultra-functional design. We’ve been fans of Yamazaki’s office & home products, all designed by their in-house team in Nara, Japan — practical and quality design inspired by Japan’s “spall space living.” Comes in white and black matte finishes.

Herman Miller Classic Aeron Chair

Herman Miller Classic Aeron Chair

A chair that endures — timeless in style and lasts in use year-after-year, a contemporary classic in the Herman Miller office line. Note the somewhat confusing three size options: The “B” is sized for most people, “A” is for the smaller of us, and “C” for the those who are taller and larger. The Aeron Chair is made in the USA and is one of the most fully adjustable while still sturdy and stylish chairs we’ve found.

Best $300 Desk Chair with Flip-up Arms and High Back Neck-Support — Gabrylly Ergonomic Mesh Office Chair

Ergonomic by design, this chair provides support to four key body points: head, lumbar, hips, and arms. It’s also home office friendly in a way many other desk chairs aren’t: the armrests of the Gabrylly Ergonomic Mesh Office Chair fold up so you can push it in under even the lowest set desk.
