Heartwork

Heartwork-1-Design Crush

 

Why is it sooo difficult to find awesome office furniture?! Finally a company seems to have nailed it – check out Heartwork. Centered around the thought that a considered workspace is a better workspace, Heartwork’s furniture (and accessories) offer clean lines and bright pops of color. I know my office could benefit from both!

Curve BT iDock

 

I haven’t had a land line since 2003, so saying I depend on my cell phone is an understatement. It’s my only line of contact. But here’s something you iPhone-users can relate to, after an extended conversation those bad boys get HOT. They’re also really awkward to hold when you’re trying to do other things at the same time.

Enter the Curve BT iDock. Just plug your iPhone into the base, connect via Bluetooth, then roam freely within a 30 foot radius. It’s super sleek in either black or white and goes with just about any decor. It even charges your phone at the same time. And I have to admit, it’s made my business calls much more enjoyable and less sweaty-eared.

 

A Curve BT iDock sample was provided to me. All opinions and experiences are my own.
