This Primary Desk is an odd sort of fellow with its angles and points and slim drawers. Inspired by mid-century furniture in the designer’s childhood, the desk hits a mark somewhere in between classic and futuristic, which isn’t an easy target, to be sure. Solid walnut makes for a sturdy frame with just enough worktop space for a small computer and writing area, and five drawers are available to squirrel away odds and ends. There’s also another thoughtful detail worth mentioning: the angle of the top drawers allow for the pitch of an open laptop. Now 15% off (until July 31).
