NY Good Questions: Multi-Purpose Desk/Storage Unit?

Hello AT,

Like many New Yorkers, I'm searching for a multi-purpose piece of furniture.

I need something that can serve as a desk for my laptop, and generous storage for my piles of random files and magazine clippings, without taking up as much space as a traditional desk (I don't spend much time at it and would rather have the space!).

Room & Board recently had this Moda desk, but before I could purchase it, they discontinued carrying it.

I like that it is compact and actually holds things below, so I don't have to stack boxes and other filing contraptions on top. I'd like to spend around the same or ideally a little less (this one ran $599) if possible...

(Note: Include a pic of your problem and your question gets posted first.)

I am interested in more modern pieces (our bedroom currently has some Blu Dot).

I've seen some traditional "secretary desks" that accomplish the function but just don't fit in our room (size or style-wise).

Suggestions are greatly appreciated!!

Thanks! Riza
