In my university years I was one of those oddities who looked forward to the fall semester starting in September — probably why I held the title of professional student for the majority of my twenties. I always savoured those first few weeks, walking around campus, crackly autumn leaves underfoot, cool sunlight and crisp air, new notebooks and coffee in hand.
Of course, one of my favourite parts of the new school year was the new clothes and stationery! I don't know which I liked more. I still consider myself a stationery aficionado, and luckily now have an office where I can put pretty paper, notepads and sticky notes to good use. (It was a sad couple of years in between school and my first office job.)
Indigo always has a fabulous selection of stationery and their new line, Poppin, is no exception. Indigo is the first international retailer for the New York-based brand. The line includes writing and desktop accessories, as well as furniture. A glossy lacquered finish and 10 different vibrant colours to choose from makes the items fun and functional. The line is available online and in stores now, just in time for back-to-school shopping.
Lets have a look at a few of my favourites.
Classic all-white looks chic and the glossy lacquered finish gives the accessories a modern look. Although I love the colourful options, I would probably opt for white in my own office.
This bright pink and green combo reminds me of summer fruit or candy — perfect for the season.
I love the idea of using a pen cup to hold a small plant. Every office should have a bit of greenery.
Stackable trays keep papers and schedules organized.
