Pretty Paper in the Office: Letter Openers

Recently, I became smitten with and purchased my first letter opener. The only people I’ve ever known who owned one had large desks and shiny name plates. When I finally bought one myself, I felt as if I had finally grown up; that I had a workspace worthy of such a stately accessory! Letter openers are typically dual duty objects. At times, they’re functional sculptures. So for those of you looking to adorn your workspace, I’ve put together a round up of some of the most practical, elegant, and even eco-friendly ways to get at your mail. – Julie
