Patterns, how do I love thee? Let me count the colorways.... An Adler-designed office mixes and matches.
Will Rogers once said he never met a man he didn't like, and I suspect the same is true of patterns for Jonathan Adler. This time, he's bringing his signature "happy chic" design into home offices, with a new line of paper products. The collaboration, with box store giant Books-A-Million (or "Books-A-Missing" if you've ever tried to find a particular volume there) is a color saturated, pattern-powered set of stationary and home office goods, including the notecards and pen below. The entire line is priced from $4.95 to $14.95 and is available through B.A.M. or Adler's website.
Rendered in four main patterns, Multi Chevron, Acapulco, Greek Key, and Diamond, the set includes pencils, pens, note cubes, and my favorite, reporter notebooks.
I particularly love the files - filing is such an onorous chore ("what comes after "J" again?" "Did I accidentally put that in the round file?"). But if nothing else, you'll be entertained while trying to dig up last year's tax records.
Post-its with panache: these are going on my desk ASAP. Imagine using them at work. Error-riddled report someone dumped on your desk? "Hate" post-it, definitely.
Gift-wrapping is an office time activity too - although I'm much more tempted to use these papers as decoupage inspiration. Blog Bromeliad, always ready with DIY ideas, has a great tutorial on how covering bins in paper - perfect for creating charming storage for your spring cleaning. Organize with Adler!
And of course, if you don't have an office area, Adler can help with that too! (Chippendale Armchair and Channing Desk, both Jonathan Adler.)
