10ft Deep —

Woo! Just ordered a new desk chair for my little home office (after painfully sifting through all the 'out of stock' and 'get it by July 31st' messages that remind me I'm not the only desk jockey missing their cushy office ergonomic chair). 

The process of researching products and imagining a reinvented surrounding deeply fascinates me. Here, check out all these great ideas that Muzli has been curating. Maybe you'll find a nugget or two from other creatives that inspires your workspace, rather than just turning that deserted corner of the desk into succulent-city.

Hope everyone is heeding last week's newsletter and getting at least 0.02% more of the creative juices flowing where they can. I've been encouraged to keep going by seeing my pals Rachel Newman, Maura Dabney, and Tanner Leslie lean into their thing. And with that, here's our latest issue. Enjoy!
