Never be embarrassed when asking an important client to sign a contract. This stylish pen in a gold tone finish is poised on a sleek, rounded, heavyweight base, so you'll never loose your pen again.
'Goes up!' Photo - $33
Any office needs art. Think of how much time you spend in yours. Why would you want to be looking at blank walls? I love this photo by Thierry Durand, which is part abstract part architectural. And priced under $50, it won't break the bank.

Here's another essential for your office: a well-stocked bar. This large, chevron, lacquered tray by Madeline Weinrib is perfect for the job.
Alfred Bar Cart - $725
A well-stocked bar can mean a stylish bar cart. Think of Mad Men. This beautiful bar cart has a polished nickel frame and mirrored shelves that will reflect all the bottles placed on it, so you don't need to stock as many.

Dark Pink Oriental Rug - $400
A rug does wonders to a bland office, especially to a bland wall-to-wall carpet office. Don't be afraid to layer, and by all means, avoid those plastic covers under your chair. A thick rug will stay in place under your chair, and and if you're really afraid of damaging your rug, opt for an already antiqued look.
