Wall office storage saves space and keep everything at reach. But you need a system if you do not want to look messy. You can either buy a ready-to-install wall storage system or create your own from everyday items. Like I said on on my HGTV.ca blog column last month, wire-frame baskets are popular right now.
Look at what photographer Candice Stringham assembled a practical wall storage with baskets she found at Pedlars and white bins from IKEA that she enhanced with font stickers. I do not think that IKEA still carries them. The larger ASKER container might be an option or look for similar bins at a local shop.
I like the look of the Industrial wall storage by the Danish company House Doctor. It is made of aluminum. It can also be practical in the kitchen.
Unusual Pen Holders
Another worthy idea is to repurpose vintage every day items as pen holders. What seems to be a wire-framed industrial light protector becomes a great support for pencils. This is also by House Doctor DK. Finally, Three Potato Four suggested to reclaim a Mexican wooden sugar cone mold to store your pens, pencils, scissors, and other office supplies.
