Get The Look: That 70's Office


Tired of looking at the same old boring desk accessories day after day? Switch out the big box boring for something with a little retro swagger! 

The 70's office had a look all it's own with manual typewriters, flip clocks and desk-size calculators. Harvest gold, avocado green and shades of orange could be found on just about everything that wasn't already adorned with a plastic wood grain finish.

Treat yourself to a mini office makeover and explore the goovy side of work with a few choice 70's accessories!

Too funny and very cool. I so remember typing class and the flip rolodex. Hard to believe the 70s was over 40 years ago. Thanks Bryan.
