The Cynthia Rowley for Staples Collection Makes Productivity Look Pretty
Whether you’re buying school supplies for your high school- or college-bound daughter or you simply feel like giving your office a much-needed makeover, the new Cynthia Rowley for Staples collection might play a key role in your desk area do-over. The expansive collection features every supply and organizational tool imaginable —from printed notebooks and memo pads to magazine holders, document boxes, paper clip tins, staplers, scissors, pencil cups, three-ring binders, zippered pencil cases, file folders, Post-It cubes, printed wedge erasers, mouse pads, pencil sharpeners, and storage boxes. All of these goods are available in an assortment of prints, among them: an abstract white-and-gold print, a dark blue pattern with bright and exotic florals, a yellow leaf print against a cream backdrop, a gold splatter paint motif against an off-white background, and a dripping paint motif with three streaks of seemingly trickling color.
Jot down lecture notes, record data, write down essay ideas, and draft to-do lists in one of the Cynthia Rowley for Staples Composition Books ($3.29 each at Staples stores), pictured above at top, which feature 80 sheets of college-ruled paper and come in three floral patterns, each inspired by classic paintings. The dark blue floral print, for one, seems to draw upon the works of 18th century painter Paulus Theodorus van Brussel or his 17th century predecessor, Jan van Huysum.
This dark blue floral print resurfaces again in the Cynthia Rowley for Staples Paper Clip Tin ($3.49 at Staples stores and Staples.com), pictured second above, which contains 50 vinyl-coated paper clips in shades of fuchsia, light pink, black, and aqua blue; this item is also available in a light blue floral tin, a yellow gold leaf tin, and a gold abstract print tin. Similarly, the Cynthia Rowley for Staples Stapler ($4.99 at Staples stores), which uses standard staples and features a non-skid base comes in the dark blue floral print shown last above, as well as in a print-free metallic gold hue.
To keep your work or study space nice and tidy, look to such items as the Cynthia Rowley for Staples Magazine Files ($7.99 each at Staples.com), shown sixth above in all three available prints; the Cynthia Rowley for Staples Document Boxes ($7.99 each at Staples.com), shown fourth above in the Dark Blue Floral Print and also available in the Gold Abstract and Yellow Leaf prints; and the Cynthia Rowley for Staples Pencil Cups, also available in all the aforementioned prints.
Once you settle on a print and color theme, these can help you breathe new life into a workspace. Just imagine a white desk adorned with gold picture frames, Cynthia Rowley supplies in the abstract gold print adding a modern feel to the space.
Think of it as a productivity Field of Dreams — once you build it (or, rather, decorate it!), the ideas will come!
