My love for paper products began at an early age during visits to the library bookstore with Dad. I would peer into the glass cabinet and pick out pencils, pouches, lined paper, paper clips, markers; goodies I adored as a girl of just 8. The office supply store was one of my favorite places, and shopping for school supplies was the highlight of my year. Santa once delivered a white board for Christmas! Imagine how many hours I spent playing "school" with my supplies! To this day journals, sticky notes, hardcovers, pens, notepads and tablets fascinate me; there is something so simple, chic, and practical about them. And now, how smitten am I to learn that local design house Matter has a storefront to supply the masses with all things hard and soft? Like this lovely tablet Janae turned me onto this morning; her notes even looked more sophisticated than mine..!
