A well-chosen pencil cup can add a welcome splash of personality to any desk, while still being an incredibly practical organizing tool. You could go to your coffee mug collection and pick one to hold your pens and pencils — or you could get something like the products I'll show you here.

The Eva Maria pencil holder from Touch provides a splash of color. It's made from "unbleached recycled paper and repurposed E.V.A waste — flip-flop material." [via Bloesem]
Ric's Leather takes a mesh pencil cup and wraps it in — you guessed it, leather. (You can also get a paper clip cup made using the same technique.) You can get "the design and colors of your choice."
Hallowed Quiet is a father-daughter team from Ohio — with some really lovely wooden pencil holders.
And if pencil cups just aren't your thing, how about the office brush from Raumgestalt? You can find it at Fitzsu and Anthropologie.
