Unplggd recently did a little round-up of the best double-desk solutions. Even though all of those homes took a problem (two people, one office) and showcased a creative solution (double desk!), they still all had one thing in common: The desks were side-by-side...

But this user's workspace, found on Flickr, takes the dual desk to a unique place with a back-to-back setup.

A simple table (which we're guessing was a dining room table instead of a desk) placed in the center of a room away from walls gives ample room for two face-to-face users, but sounds like a cord management nightmare!

But this wire-wrangling pro added grommets to the table—two with USB hubs (like the Belkin one we featured) and one with an iPhone dock—and wired up all the extras under the table. The image above gives a peek behind the curtain, where you'll see a MiniMac and an external drive, along with monitor transformers and a reostat to adjust the desk lamps.
