If you don’t have a spare coffee mug you’d like to turn into a pencil cup, you certainly have plenty of other delightful options. I’m only finding this one on a single site, in New Zealand; it’s not on the manufacturer’s site, so it’s probably a discontinued product where supplies are limited. But others are more readily available around the globe.
The Big Tomato Company has a number of interesting pen pots; of the line drawing ones, this bicycle pen pot may be my favorite. You can also find it at Unite & Type.
The typographic pen pots are fun, too. You can find these at Unite & Type, too.
If you’ve ever used Rhodia notebooks (or admired them in the stores), you’ll probably recognize the shade of orange on this pencil cup. This is the Rhodia ePURE Pencil Pot, made from imitation leather and available from a number of online vendors.
This pen pot from Field is made from “reclaimed yellow pine that orginated in centuries old vinegar barrels found in the state of Maryland.” It seems gorgeous — and it’s also $90. [via Better Living Through Design]
Here’s another one on the more expensive end: the Petal Cup from Dino Sanchez. That’s a powder-coated steel cup, with a red oak base. There are three color choices. [via Design Milk]
And finally, here’s the fern leaf pencil pot from Ken's Garden Pottery. The fern leaf used to make the impression did indeed come from Ken’s garden.
