If you're looking to give your office a sense of authority, add a few choice brass accessories – the sophistication level will skyrocket! Here are a few of my favourite decorative items for the desk top in the finish. Geo Brass bookends, $49 per pair, West Elm. Keep your books in place with these geometric bookends, which subtly reference the shape of a horse. Bestiary pencil holder, $18 US, Anthropologie. There's something so old-worldly elegant about a footed vessel. This little beast is big enough to keep all your pens, pencils and highlighters corralled. Capiz magnifying glass, $20, Indigo. A thoughtfully placed magnifying glass can really elevate the look of any work space – and it will come in handy when you've got fine print to read. Lucent Brass index clips, $24 US, Anthropologie. Keep all your files in order with sweet little Deco-style index clips. Torpedo task lamp, $199 US, Restoration Hardware. Illuminate the task at hand with an adjustable 20th-century inspired lamp in an aged brass tone. Do you have a go-to shop for brass-cessories? Leave a comment below.
