These days everyone all of a sudden loves art and have become some kind of aficionado. Most people who litter their houses and offices with art pieces do it for their beauty and a bit of sophistication that it adds to their person rather than a true understanding of the piece and its meaning or significance.

Inspirational quotes

Have you ever walked into some offices and on every corner, you find frames of inspirational quotes from Ghandi, Martin Luther King Jr, Darth Vader, Winston Churchill, Tyrion Lanister, and so on, littered. For some, these quotes might mean something, but if we are being honest, for the majority, they’re just there to add to the aesthetics of the room or to appear serious minded, and the fact that when we see them we become impressed, and feel like we’re at the right place, means it’s definitely worth it.

Self-care tools

Health is wealth, but is your table not too clustered for that hand grip exercise equipment that almost do not use because of your busy schedule. Let your fitness or health consciousness show in the way you look and not by what is on your desk.

Personality objects
