If your response to both these questions is rolling your eyes and wishing for the umpteenth time you'll win the lottery, you need to take in this number: $220. It's a tray, which is significantly smaller than a credenza or cabinet, hence the significantly smaller price tag. It's still not cheap, of course, as it is a collaboration between ...Read more
