Tropics Dining Table with Trestles

The legs on this table look identical to the Multi Table I posted a while ago, but this picture (or maybe the high gloss top) puts it into perspective. Plus, there’s the option of ‘Golden Trestles’ (which, if you say aloud, sounds like some type of candybar or fantasy land).

“Dine or work in style, times infinity with our Tropics Table. An easy, modern solution that’s ultimately versatile, allowing you to customize any dining nook, work area or home office over and over. Sleek and rectangular, the Tropics Table comes in 3 options.”

Color and Leg combinations: Chocolate with Golden Trestles, Zebrano Wood with Chromed Trestles, High Gloss Walnut with Chromed Trestles

71″w x 35″ d x 30″ h

New Antiques by Marcel Wanders for Cappellini

I’m enjoying the New Antiques collection by Marcel Wanders. This chair in particular strikes my fancy. It’s a Klismos style chair (an ancient Greek form) merged with the turned wood technique, where wood is thrown on the lathe for the “knobby” appearance.

“A stunning takeoff on period furniture, the new antique wood-turned chairs and tables are available in matte black or white lacquer. the chair seats are upholstered with polyurethane foam and covered with a choice of smooth G908 or stamped leather of the same color choice as the frame. the seat is also available made of woven polyester belts with the cappellini logo.”

Waveform Shelf as a desk

We’ve posted the Waveform Shelf before, but Danielle over at Apartment Therapy came up with the idea of mounting it lower and using it as a little laptop desk. For those of us with small quarters, it’s a brilliant idea. What’s more, the fact that it has no legs means it will take up no floor space, which we all know makes a space look larger.

One Less Desk

My new friend Adam alerted me that the fine folks over at Hecker Design are now taking pre-orders for their one less desk which will ship in March.

The idea behind One Less Desk is that CRT’s are being traded up for flat screen monitors and one can now survive with much less desk surface area than before.

What about all your paperwork, you ask? I’ve been following the 37 Signals’ David Heinemeier’s suggestion to scan all my papers and bills to PDF and then shred them–that way I’ve got everything I could possibly need at my fingertips even if I’m at home, the office or out of town.
