Office Supplies: Optimum Comfort
When you spend at least 40 hours a week at the office, it can start to feel as though it’s your second home. While we don’t recommend spending more time at the office than necessary, these products will bring the creature comforts into your workspace and hopefully make those long hours a bit more enjoyable.

Take a Load Off

Spin it Around
There’s no need to slouch in your chair when you can place your laptop on the new mStand360.

The aluminum panel keeps it from overheating and provides stability as the tilt design brings your screen closer to you. mStand360, $59.90

Keep it regulated
Climate control can be difficult in the office, but not with this fan/heater combo that quietly cools or heats the air from your desktop. This energy efficient, bladeless fan also tilts for optimum exposure. Dyson AM05 Hot + Cool Fan Heater (pictured), $395
