If your home office is starting to feel a little too much like your cubicle at work, perhaps it’s time to ditch the Office Max catalog and start treating the space like you would a real room in the house. A place that reflects your style—not Corporate America’s. Graphic designer Julia Archer was decorating her own workspace when she realized that it was way too difficult to find accoutrements that both looked good and functioned the way she needed them to. She thought, “Wouldn’t it be nice if you could get all these things in one place?” So she opened @WorkDesign, dedicated to “design-driven, yet affordable product solutions from desks, seating and other furnishings to lighting, shelving, paper goods, and work bags.” 7500 W.

Shopped @WorkDesign and located waterproof bags for workfiles on the go and a wool shoulder bag that gets a lot of positive attention at business functions. Bought an industrial design tape dispenser as a hostess gift and it was well received. Returned to @WorkDesign for a custom "tool bag" to my color/capacity self-selection and it is an excellent design for my everyday out-in-the field days with customers. It is a serious bag for serious deals. If you appreciate MOMA NYC, you will find @WorkDesign a destination and source for getting work together in Forest Park, Illinois. Organization rocks!
