Is it really that hard to find a cheap desk without compromising on design?
I'm talking under $400, including shipping.
I'm moving into a tiny studio (less than 300 square feet).
I will be starting graduate school and need a desk that's less than 45" long and has actual storage, at least two or three good drawers.
The need for more than just a pencil drawer disqualifies pretty much all of the desks in my price range - the West Elm Parson's desk is a great design, but useless for someone who needs more than just a place to rest their laptop...

I've looked at C&B, CB2, West Elm, PB, Ballard Designs & Target.
Appearance wise I would like something in a light or medium wood (or white or black), with an interesting shape and a mid century feel, but of all the requirements, this is the one I am most flexible on.
Am I really being too picky?
My last resort is the IKEA Mikael workstation, which looks like a monster to put together.
I'd prefer to avoid that IKEA look if possible.
Any ideas or suggestions would be MUCH appreciated.
