Since we spend a good portion of our week at the office, why shouldn’t it showcase our personalities the same way our bedrooms, living rooms and game rooms do at home? Many eclectic executives have taken to quirky and often useless office decorations to make their workspace feel more compatible with their personal tastes. If you’re tired of drab walls and muted colors, here are some of the best office decorations for the eclectic executive.
Best Office Decorations: Office Cubes – Bob, Joe, Ted & Ann
If you’re tired of your boss pulling your strings, you can exact a little payback with the office cube sets from mcphee.com. Bob, Joe, Ted and Ann each come with their own plastic cubicle, complete with office posters, computer, phone and even a job title sticker. You set the pace for your miniature office and you can even purchase the complementary break room and copy center to complete the effect. Each set costs $12.95 plus shipping and handling.
Best Office Decorations: Office Fish Tank
The eclectic executive can’t complete his office décor without the office fish tank from fredflare.com. For $24.95, you can have your own 7.25″x6.5″x5″ fish tank. Instead of plastic plants, rock beds and shiny castles, this fish tank is decorated just like your office. It has a desk, desk lamp, computer, filing cabinet, “potted plant” and family picture frame. The tank doesn’t come with a fish, but fredflare.com recommends guppies and goldfish.
Best Office Decorations: Sarcastic Ball
The Magic 8-Ball from your childhood games has now been updated to the decidedly less charming Sarcastic Ball from mcphee.com. This purple plastic ball gives responses like, “Yeah, Right!”, “Get a clue!” and “In Your Dreams!” to complete the monotonous and sometimes frustrating tedium of office work. If you don’t have the stomach for the Sarcastic Ball, you can also check out the Affirmation Ball or the Financial Ball.
Best Office Decorations: Anger Management Doll
This little toy is something of a cross between Voodoo and wishful thinking. The Anger Management Doll from prankplace.com touts mean phrases like, “You’re working late today!” until you throttle his neck. Then he changes his tune and gives you a raise or a half-day or a promotion. You’ll spend twenty bucks on this fine invention, but it might help work off some of that suppressed rage.
Best Office Decorations: Abusive Rubber Stamps
With this decoration for the eclectic executive, you won’t have to tell your coworkers to buzz off; they’ll get the message loud and clear. For $5.00 each, you can purchase rubber stamps from prankplace.com that say things like, “Staple this to your face!” and “File Under ‘T’ for Trash”. It doesn’t get much more fun than this.
