Sketch Desk Tidy featured on Design Milk

It was fantastic to see our Sketch Desk Tidy featured on Design Milk this month.
The Desk Tidy was inspired by our lead designer Tara’s architectural drawings hidden within her art college sketchbooks. The geometric wire cage is nestled within a wooden base. For those of you with a stationery fetish like us this is great for proudly displaying your favourite finds! Have you taken a look at the amazing range on Present and Correct? Definitely worth a visit!

The Sketch Desk Tidy is now in stock, available in Black and Blue. Look out for an Orange Desk Tidy coming soon!
