West Elm Ciao Desk
West Elm

I've always been partial to hairpin legged furnishings because of their airy presence, yet strong weight support. The Ciao Desk fits the bill, a space efficient and handsome mix of midcentury design combined with a reclaimed material style finish, perfect for apartments, homes, or dorms with space limitations. The desk isn't cheap, but I think the solid teak wood and iron hairpin legs justifies a small splurge.
