    Jac Zagoory makes some interesting pens and desk accessories. If you can't justify spending $150.00 on a stapler they show up on eBay now and again. Of course you could save your pennies and go bespoke through Swaine Adeney.

    I have elephant bookends with inlaid ivory (real ivory) and ivory tusks; my parents bought them at bazaar in Iran a long, long time ago.

    Demographic saturation maps. It makes for a nice conversation piece. I can point and say "The more brown an area is, the more Mexicans. The more white it is, the more Anglos."

    A few pics of talent who have done spots/ads for my company. Print ads are posted everywhere, though I have been keeping them in a folder as of late.

    I got bookends, but not those. I'll take a pic soon.

    If I'm hiring for a new position, I cover a section of a wall in resumes. I've always wanted an attractive work area, but I think it looks more some detective went on the deep end with a case he obsessed over. I just want at-a-glance information and references around me.
