Here's a quick roundup of three outstanding desks, all modern, with great, unusual details and each with their own distinctive design personality…
Stash Desk: The Stash desk lives up to its name with a quirky, bright red drawer. It's compact, so it's a space-saver but is still sturdy with its walnut legs. We read that the assembly is something of a tedious effort, but a plus is the fact that you can place the drawer on the right or left side of the desk.
Doodle Desk: In elementary school, I used to place unwanted posters on top of my desk so I could doodle while working, or use it as scratch paper. After the entire blank side of the poster got filled, I would throw it out and find a new one. This Doodle Desk concept is similar, except it has an entire huge pad of paper as the surface of the desk. Once you fill the paper with scribbles and doodles, you can rip it off for a fresh sheet.
Klippen Klappen Desk: The design of this desk was inspired by traditional sewing boxes, which I absolutely love. When closed, it looks like a neat wooden box. When in use, it opens up several levels of compartments to hold your belongings, and comes with a power-supply hub attached. Depending on what tools you need, you can have each compartment open and handy while you're working on a computer, or keep them closed if all you need is your laptop at the moment.
