Obsessed with the Instagram @thingsorganizedneatly?

We feel you. Part of our job is to make sure that spaces look beautiful, clean, and purposeful, so any trick that can easily transform a cluttered table into a 90 degree angle masterpiece is kind of our jam. Enter knolling (sometimes known as a flat-lay, but they’re slightly different), inspired by the clean lines of Knoll furniture and institutionalized by the artist Tom Sachs.


It might look a little OCD, but trust us, it will make even the most disorganized office desk look Instagram worthy! The tricks?

  1. Clear the space of everything you aren’t going to use.
  2. With everything left that you are using, group things in ‘like’ objects. Pens with pens, lipsticks with lipgloss, staples with staplers.
  3. Align or square all objects equal to the surface they rest on.
  4. 90 degree angles are king!
