The Cull: 10 Surprisingly Chic Products from Staples

Bigso Box of Sweden Office Storage Boxes as part of the Remodelista Storage 75 Series

Margot recently stopped by her local Staples store and was surprised to discover so many great-looking office supplies. “I love browsing in foreign stationery stores and, to my amazement, Staples is starting to have some of that appeal,” she wrote to tell me. “There’s much more to be found on closer examination than I had expected—things like washi tape and Moleskin notebooks. Oh, and Staples now sells the Swedish brand Bigso, which we’ve featured in Remodelista: The Organized Home book!”

I was skeptical. The last time I was in the store, the only thing I saw was red as I waited for nearly an hour in a back-to-school line of fellow moms and their patience-challenged kids. But after perusing the website, I have to concur. Staples is, indeed, stocked with some unexpectedly attractive items. Here, some favorites:
