While you embark on your New Year's resolutions this month, make sure organizing your interior spaces is one of them. Often cluttered, the home office is the perfect place for a New Year’s cleanup. The Dwell Store’s collection of workplace essentials includes minimalist storage containers, colorful notebooks, innovative calendars, and much more, to help you get your desktop in ideal working condition for 2015.

Multifunctional storage caddy with varied configurations

The Nest Caddy is a versatile storage solution that is perfect for reorganizing in the New Year. The wood caddy can be used to store pens, pencils, and other desk items. The caddy’s lid can be used to conceal contents, or can be flipped over to hold additional items, and also can be used as a tray. The metal holder is both a way to transport the caddy, and a place to hold a tablet or display an art print.

Multifunctional lamp with storage cup for pens and pencils

With its simple profile, the Cup Lamp is an unexpected multitasker. In addition to its primary function as a dimmable LED lamp, the light includes a storage cup at the base designed to hold pens and pencils or other small knickknacks.

Colorful pens that clip onto paper or notebooks

This set of three pens from Korean design brand CLIP PEN has an innovative detail—the pens can be clipped onto a section of papers or a folder, or even used as a bookmark. The pen made its design debut at London Design Week 2014.

Simple and elegant wastepaper basket or storage vessel

With its Wire Trash Bin, Menu takes a necessary accessory and recasts it as a distinctive accent. Comprised of steel wire, the wire paper bin is available in powder-coated colors, or chrome-plated and brass-plated versions.

Bold blue notebook with dotted pages

Public Supply’s Dot Paper Notebook is designed with simplicity in mind. The five- by eight-inch notebook includes 96 pages of dot paper, inviting just enough order to focus penmanship, but enough open space for users to feel free to sketch or create their own note-taking system.

Reclaimed wood storage caddy with rustic appeal

Crafted from reclaimed olde growth pine salvaged from antique floor joints from Philadelphia houses built in the 1800s, the Reclaimed Wood Desk Caddy has a decidedly vintage look and feel, but also can blend easily into contemporary interiors. The caddy is a simple way to organize pens, pencils, and other desk items.

Brass, wood, and leather paperweight desktop accent

While you might be focused on de-cluttering, adding a desktop accent like Tipsy is a great idea. This tabletop object is crafted from solid turned brass and turned maple. Structured in a teardrop shape with a weighted brass base and conical wood top, Tipsy is impossible to knock over, and can be used as a paperweight, accent piece, desktop toy, or even as a stress reliever.

Innovative book shelving concealing the shelf

Get your books off of your desk and showcase them as floating works of art with the Conceal Shelf from designer Miron Lior for Umbra. When stacked with books, the entire shelving unit becomes invisible, allowing your library to take center stage.
