A bland, lifeless workspace can make it harder to stay motivated, so personal touches go a long way to improving your productivity and mindset in the office.
Aside from the psychological benefits of desk decor, personalising your workspace is also a great way for your colleagues to learn more about your tastes and interests. A simple ornament can represent different aspects of your personality and help your colleagues to better understand who you are as a person.
Some ideas for how to decorate a desk, cubicle, or office include: plants, photo frames, luxury notebooks, lamps, cushions, artwork, coasters and trinket boxes.
A paperweight can also be a great way to add a touch of colour or personality to your workspace or cubicle, without having to use wall space or hang pieces of art.They are one of the more functional ways to decorate your office space, and can be used in the following ways:
- As a topper for the in tray on your desk.
- To stabilise papers from sliding around when writing or highlighting.
- To stop important papers or documents from flying away in breezes or winds.
These products can make the perfect gift for a teacher or colleague, or indeed anyone you know that spends a lot of time behind a desk.
Many people may buy one without ever using it for its intended purpose - to stop documents from blowing away. Aside from the alternative uses finished above, many customers may use these items simply to decorate the home.
As society moves away from a paperless office, glass paperweights have grown more ornamental in their design and are more commonly used for decorative purposes. It is not unusual to see them adorning mantelpieces, bookshelves, or coffee tables in addition to their original home of desk tabletops.
They have certainly come a long way from their humble beginnings as flat-bottomed glass baubles in 1845. Early designs encased various flowers or animal motifs, before moving on to showcase impressive textures and patterns within the glass. At the time, the art of letter writing was booming, and they had utility as a way to keep papers organised.
These products may also be considered as a collectable item, and can be cherished as small, unique artworks due to small variances in the hand-blown glass. They are treasured for their beauty and glassmaking technique, and tourists may also acquire them as souvenirs to keep as a reminder of their coastal getaway.
Consider adding paperweights to your stationery or decor range - along with easy giftability for teachers and office workers, they also double as glass ornaments that can be used to embellish different parts of the home.
These ornaments are a simple, elegant way to add a certain motif or a bright burst of vibrant colour to a room. You may see them used as decoration in the following spaces:
- Offices, including desks and cubicles
- Reception areas
- Study nooks
- Coffee tables
- Side tables
- Console / hallway tables
- Kitchen clutter
