February is the month for LOVE. Valentine’s Day is February 14th and right around the corner.

Gift Guide: Office


Hermes BookMadison Frame, Anthropologie Pencil Holder, LAFCO Candle

Whether you work at home or in a corporate environment, an office is one room that tends to get over looked in terms of personal style. Too often we sacrifice style in the name of productivity, but this year that can change. Maybe it’s just a candle in a festive scent or a paperweight to keep piles in order, but even a small addition can pack plenty of personality into your professional space. Here are a few items on our office wish list we would be happy to unwrap on Christmas morning. Happy shopping!
