A Minami For You

Minami 8oz porcelain tea cups at Crate & Barrel

Minami 8oz porcelain tea cups at Crate & Barrel

Check these out. Exclusively at Crate and Barrel, these white porcelain 8oz. tea cups are perfect for the desk. With a dimension size of 3.5″ dia x 2.75″ in height, you can use them for paper clips, push pins, and other small necessities. Or use them for their original purpose…sipping tea. Get rid of the traditional coffee mug on the desk and add some simple minimal style to your work surface. I really like the thinness of each cup; they feel fragile, yet uphold a rigid stability. And in fact, when dust settles or the tea starts to soil the bottom, you can place them in the dishwasher.

Another suggestion for adding simple minimal style to your desk is to use  a sake bottle as a rose bud vase. This one found at Crate & Barrel is white porcelain with intricate beading that adds a sophisticated ornamentation without being too fussy. You can do a combination of the sake bottle with the Minami tea cups as a collection on your work surface, or try the power of repition with a few sake bottles perched on a shelf. These items are reasonable priced and provide a great way to upgrade your office.

Order online or visit your nearest Crate & Barrel for this and more ideas.
