New Desk Modernist Daydreams

Alyson's recommendations at ThisNext

No, the sane solution when faced with a cluttered desk is not "buy a new desk." However, sanity died a quick and painless death when I started technicolor daydreaming of George Nelson's Swag Leg Desk: insouciant cubbies, shapely legs, and check out the rack on top of that thing.

And, when Blu Dot's Desk 51 materialized, so did Ab Fab / Edina Monsoon's voice: "I just want SURFACES, darling... I don't want THINGS on PLACES like that."

But my heart has always belonged to the veritable Mondrian of tables, Eames's File Drawer Des and its generous, versatile surface perfect for any Renaissance minimalist who is a work-space maximalist.
