Office Desk Pad

Hubby got me the Tobacco colored set for Christmas a couple of years ago, even though I told him I only wanted the desk pad. I'm glad now that he got all of it. I use the desk pad at my office desk, the mouse pad as kind of a place mat when I eat at work, and the medium sized pad at home to put paper on to write letters. The color is great and with use only gets better, acquiring a patina that gives it more character. I like the weathered look, hence the Tobacco color. It picks up that used patina more quickly than the other colors.

BackStorySince we had already driven down to the Southern Sierra Madres of Mexico, I figured why not stop into the little town of Santa Clara del Cobre, “The Copper Town”, to find out what everybody was talking about. So, I turned our truck off the main road with our babies asleep in the back and followed the signs. Almost every single store in that picturesque pueblo was filled with hammered copper everything. From bathtubs to lamps to pens to even hammered copper toilets. It was like we had stumbled upon a hidden treasure in a cave.Now back home in Texas, I had my new office to create from scratch and I wasn’t about to let it look average. As I asked around for someone to make me some custom desk pieces. People pointed us over to a backstreet coppersmith workshop where they were pounding out the glowing lumps of copper straight out of the fire. It wasn’t long before I was the proud owner of a hammered copper in and out paper tray, an envelope holder, a business card holder, a letter opener and a pen holder. They couldn’t have been more perfect.They fit PERFECTLY on my old worn wooden desk, but still something was missing. It needed leather. Well, that’s how these came about. I’ve always appreciated sets of 3’s, the divine number of perfection, and know that things just feel right to me if they’re arranged in triangles. And so when I laid down my newly designed leather desk pad, monitor pad and mouse pad and saw the wood, leather and old copper together, I knew the office was then complete.

I built a wood topped stand up desk. My wife might say that I built it so I could get these desk pads. I ordered these pads to put on top of it–it's beautiful. I use the large pad for my keyboard and mouse, the medium one sits next to my phone and usually has a notepad on it. The mousepad, I use at home when I need to work there. I was hesitant to order the whole set, because I knew I only needed 2 of the 3, now that I have them–I'm glad I bought the set. So many people ask questions about it when they see them on my desk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DdGee from Very useful I bought 1 of these many years ago and within days I bought 3 more. And again years later I thought I could use 3 more so I bought 5 and yes I have more uses for these. How do I use these? I have one one my Kitchen desk that has a beautiful oak surface. I had a glass topper but it showed fingerprints and this does not and it protects the surface much better. Under my dogs dishes, under my coffee bar surface, On my dining table and sidebar buffet that helps with hot dishes, bathroom makeup counter that helps keep the grout clean. In my craft room to protect my furniture from glue, ink and paint, under my small sewing machines that helps keep them for moving. These are also easy to cut to fit. This is not a cutting surface by it self but it is helpful under my cutting board that helps it not move so easily and since it is much larger than my cutting board I can slide the trimmings easy on the extra surface and carry it to the garbage can. Have cut circles, squares, and rectangles to place under plants to protect from water splashes onto furniture, wood floors and carpet. Date published: 2017-04-26
