Classic Office Supplies from Schoolhouse Electric

Schoolhouse Electric is one of my go to sources for lighting ideas, but as Anna recently reminded me, they have a host of other stylish items, like these classic office supplies. As I’m currently living out of boxes in my office, I spent a bit of time there dreaming of useful, pretty organization. Someday.
