Who says white’s a no-no after Labor Day? Room & Board’s Moda line is best known for its nursery furniture, but this beautiful desk stands alone as a contender with the likes of the Offi Wave and West Elm Parsons, perfectly fit for use by grown-ups with its modern lines, storage shelves and pull-out keyboard tray.

As it gets colder outside, we appreciate crisp white inside our home even more. In addition to keeping things feeling bright and clean, it sets off the other rich colors we begin to surround ourselves with during this time — check out that cocoa brown wall in the picture!
