Alternative Office Furniture Finds

Here at Turnstone I believe they do an outstanding job of finding function and design as equal measures of a successful product. My favorite place to browse Turnstone is the Accessories where unique piece always give an office the "something to remember".


The Bivi Bike Hook is my favorite but Turnstone also has mulitpurpose items as well, something that you can update as you go, like the Campfire Ottoman with slipcovers.

So I went looking for found objects that I could see upcycled or repurposed in an office setting and here's what I came up with:

Hidden items, like these quart baskets (for berries) are a steal when it comes to organization for all the little things you keep around. Keep your cords in one place, stash your mouse when you're not using it, have a handful of mints on hand etc. Whatever you find you need - these inexpensive problem solvers can keep you straightened out.

White boards are a language in most offices. Everyone needs one, uses one or is aware of where to find one. I saw this oval table top and immediately thought chalk board table. It needs some legs (which aren't hard to find either) and some paint. I see it as a great collaborative worksite in your office.

There seems to be thousands of ways to reuse pallets and I found a great up-cycled shelf out of one. A place for IN and a place for OUT. Mail, files, etc.

Once you have that chalk board table in your office you'll need a snazzy centerpiece to hold the chalk. I found one for you. But it could also hold business cards or be the unforgettable candy dish, too.

And you always need a pencil holder. A place to put the utensils you'll use the most and while jars and cans are a great option you could also use a funky vase. Maybe one of a fish? Gulp.

I could shop for hours and only get ideas, it's one of my favorite things to do. So tell me, when you head out and know you need to fit a purpose are you looking around you first? You might already have exactly what you need to find the function as well as design, what are your tips and tricks? As always, Turnstone is here to help with design ideas and answers
