From purveyors of all things stationery Present & Correct
What better excuse is there than National Stationery Week, to just take a moment of appreciation for this sublime genre of practical heaven. That feeling of collecting (and never wanting to use!) a pristine rubber or a set of colouring pencils, has never quite left me.
It’s interesting that in this digital age where we are all fused by the fingers to our computers, tablets and phones, that the trend for highend and beautifully designed stationery is on the up. Maybe it’s nostalgia that’s creating the demand or perhaps it’s the fact that nothing can replace a hand written note and I don’t think we’re quite ready to let go of all things paper that lets the stationery live on!
My dream desk scenario below would of course be for display only, there would be a drawer full of boring items stashed away that could be used without fear of ruining! (You may note the computer keyboard, but I think that counts these days!).
