BRAND / Appointed
We are so delighted to stock Appointed on our shelves and in store. Appointed is an American-made brand of thoughtfully designed desktop products that make utility look luxurious. Following an exhaustive yet unsuccessful search to find well made and refined desktop products that are manufactured in the USA they decided to create our own. Each of their items are practical, beautiful and handcrafted of the finest materials, Appointed goods are designed to elevate the work experience.
Appointed was founded by graphic designer, Suann Song, who believes a beautiful work environment fosters creativity, productivity and overall well-being. Each Appointed product is created with this philosophy in mind — while keeping design, functionality and craftsmanship our highest priority.
Their studio is based in Washington D.C. where their products are designed, finished and packed with care.
What makes them stand out from the rest is how they got started. In March 2015, Appointed launched and successfully raised funding through a Kickstarter campaign. The funds raised from the campaign were used to put their first product — the notebook — into production. The notebook is their signature product as they believe a notebook represents untapped potential and endless possibility. To see the genesis of Appointed see their Kickstarter campaign and video here.
OUR APPOINTED SHOP
Of course, we stocked their signature notebooks in our shop first. We were stuck to decide between so many, but we’ve gone with our personal favourites: charcoal, dove grey and rose pink. What makes them so special is the durable cloth cover — they were designed with the user in mind. They come with the option of grid, lined or blank paper. Each page has a small margin where you can write the date. They’re perfect for the classic keeper of everyday things: records, thoughts, drawings, personal histories. The perfect gift for stationery lovers.
Following the Notebook, we stocked the Monthly Planner in Charcoal which is a perfect size for those on the go. It’s saddle-stitch spine also makes it a great desktop addition. It’s a beautiful at-a-glance monthly planner. One month per two-page spread, and each page is blank so that you can begin any time of year.
