Walnut Keyboard Tray

What's so great about a keyboard tray? Well, nothing if you're a strict minimalist and don't have a bunch of little things rattling around on your desk. However, if you're like the rest of us, you could use a small spot to stash a few pens, paperclips, extra batteries and other little miscellany that has no home. A slim profile keeps the ergonomics of Apple's keyboard and the natural black ...Read more

HB6B / Karin Matz

Small, well designed apartments that take advantage of cramped quarters will always have a place in my heart, thanks to living in a ~450 square foot studio apartment in my 20s. I remember imagining countless ways to remodel it if I owned instead of rented. That's why, despite its somewhat rough looking walls, this little apartment by architect Karin Matz in Stockholm has caught my interest. Take a look at the ...Read more

Aluminum Tray by Piet Hein Eek

What's so great about an Aluminum Tray?
