ICFF: Sabino Aprile's Ribalta Desk

Our favourite home office desk of the ICFF show, this small footprint desk from Italian furniture designers, Sabino Aprile, appeals to our preference to hide away our home tech when not in use. The Ribalta desk was designed specifically with the laptop user in mind, with a foldout design which gives ample surface space for work, while also providing a storage area to slide the laptop away and close up the desk near seamlessly. Beautiful, but expensive, the desk is a small home office dream piece...

The Ribalta Desk is handcrafted and available in teak, ebony, walnut and wenge matched with stainless steel X-legs taht give it a sexy side profile (we saw it from a distance and were drawn like a moth to the light). Especially love the wenge finish version with contrast of darker wood with copper accent texture.
