Sometimes a product comes along that just strikes you as a fabulous idea. This table from CB2 can be a dining space, a desk, and it even has a little more to give. Want to know why I'm so in love?

According to the CB2 website, this desk (which retails for $279) is made from rRaw low-emission engineered wood top." And although we're more solid-woodt-type people here at Re-Nest, or at least like to know what glue is helping bind that engineered top together, I'm willing to go with the flow on this one. Here's why:

The Fold desk stole my heart for many reasons. (Note: Is it wrong to write a love letter to a desk?) For starters, the hardware is exposed, making it easy to get to when it's time to tighten or or disassemble it. Also, this small detail allows you to switch out the current table top.

The powder coated legs should last a lifetime with proper care. Not into a dining table or desk? Cut the top smaller and make a side table, or thinner and make a console table for behind your sofa.

The clean lines lend it to all sorts of designs and I fully appreciate a piece that could work as child's desk, travel with them to college and even have a place in their own home some day. Sometimes being super green means being durable and having longevity, and that's exactly why I love this piece!

Do you share the same feelings? Why or why not, sound off in the comments below!
