Otto Desk

I love this desk. It hides all the junk that an office space has without being an eyesore. It looks good enough to put anywhere really…and it’s got the necessary details to make you happy. I promise.

“On the left, a narrow two-shelf cupboard with door is a convenient hideaway for books and papers. The larger cupboard on the right serves as a self-enclosing workstation with a pull-down writing surface. Using a simple motion, one can draw open the hinged front panel to expose an interior storage and workspace, replete with a cable management compartment, a telephone jack, an electrical outlet, an overhead fluorescent light, a built-in pencil holder and a long drawer to stash desk accessories. In extension, the 30.75″ secretary-style writing surface is supported by sturdy hinges to ensure strength and smooth, balanced closure. ”

Oak veneer; lacquered beech hardwood; steel.
Available in Grey Oak/Cream or Oak/Red.

Time Life Stools

Here’s a secret about me. I’m cheap. Some may call that frugal. Anyway, I don’t really ever like to pay retail so I try to shop around and get the best price, which is why I love the internet. I really want one of the Time Life Stools and they retail at around $700. I think the pricing is all kind of arbitrary. If they retailed for $1400 then I would buy two at $700 because I was getting a good deal. But since they retail at $700 I want to try to do better. It’s a sickness, really. But here’s the good news: I found a place where you can buy them for $629 with no tax and free shipping. So there you go.

Kirei Mod Coffee Table

Look at this- an environmentally friendly coffee table that looks like it shouldn’t be (and, by that, I just mean that it’s suprising that it is)…I really like the stark contrast between the matte white and natural fibers. Well done!

“A graphic coffee table featuring Kirei board, an environmentally friendly material made from the reclaimed stalks of the sorghum plant. Normally an agricultural waste product, the discarded stalks are bonded into a sheet glued with formaldehyde-free adhesives. The result is a beautiful textured material that looks like plant cells. We’ve clad the Kirei in matte white acrylic with areas cut away to form a strong graphic motif.”

Material: Kirei & Acrylic.

DeStijl table

This is a nice DeStijl example was designed in 1922 and reportedly was one of Eileen Grays favorite pieces and stood in her living room until her death.

“She exhibited it in 1922 at an exhibition of French art in Amsterdam. It was no surprise that this small table aroused the attention of the DeStijl architects. The sculptural Quality, the use of color and the logical design are all features of ‘DeStijl’.”

pivot table workstation

When real estate is at a premium, this pivot workstation (which expands to reveal a tiny desk) is perfect for anyone who just has a few files to store and isn’t a compulsive worker. Actually, it’s nice to think about having a workspace that’s available only when you need it instead of having it beckon you to sit down and work or check your email. What a concept.
