If the thought of beautifully patterned notebooks, a set of matching pencils, or stylish desk organisers gives you a little flutter inside, then this news is for you. Søstrene Grene has created an office collection, and it’s the perfect excuse to get yourself some shiny new stationery. It’s not just pencils either: there are also lamps, wall racks, and even a desk and chair. It’s in stores from June 28, so put the date in your (colour co-ordinated) diary.
