I’ve been thinking about L.A. Reid’s executive office and wanted to make some recommendations for small objets d’art and trinkets that make for a luxe suite. The solid aluminum pencil sharpener from Canoe is a great companion piece for your desktop. Measuring only 1.5″D x 2.5″H, this small item will have a subtle elegance amidst the clutter in your office. Pair it with other polished aluminum, silver and chrome accents. Try hitting an antique store for other pieces to make for an interesting set, perhaps a silver tray and a mint julep cup for your pens. The German made sharpener is available for $48 at www.canoeonline.net.
