♥ It'd be great to find a collection of pieces from local shops, vintage or thrift stores to furnish my studio. Paperish Mess (www.paperishmess.com) can also work to build custom work benches for your own studio if you are interested. If you're in Chicago looking for art supplies, definitely check out Artist & Craftsman Supply or Genesis Art Supply!
OP says: this kind of organized mess appeals to me. I love to see the stuff, but I also need moments of blankness. I have to agree, although this is a bit too haphazard for me.
