i'm on a desk search for a fam room (my client i blogged about here),.... though, not just a desk--
a desk that doesn't look like a desk!
after all, it is NOT an office but a family room!
...jenna lyons' old brooklyn townhouse
...jennifer alba's abode
needs to perform triple duty tasks: desk, console & bar cart
cleverly concealed storage
a mid-range, price-point (300.00-900.00)
a clean-lined look,... no bulky desk-looking sides
a dark brown but a white could also work
#1-- crate & barrel
love-- the clean minimalist look, yet may be too minimal........
the spotlight white
again loving the simplicity & claen white,... but not the lack of storage
#2-- west elm
i'm partial to the soft natural wood finish, black iron base, two seamless storage drawers,... just a bit on the smaller size...
parsons desk (chocolate or white)
ok, i'll come clean, i am more than partial to this desk (own one) love love love, not much downside except that it may be too inconspicuous.......
#3-- boston interiors
the architect desk
what i like-- an adjustable table height: can go from desk height to coffee table height, dark mahogany, drawback-- no storage,...
like-- white lacquered finish, streamlined drawers, x-base,... not crazy about the aluminum finish handle (drab & too exec-officey),.........
#4-- pottery barn
love the two drawers, flush handle hardware, sand-blasted hardwood that gives off a distressed look, the iron industrial-look base,... negative is that it's in the higher end of the budget at $799.99......
#5-- pottery barn teen-- don't judge,... nothing is off-limits (cost-savings,... like shopping in the kids' clothing section!)
the parsons desk
love the simple parson's style, white lacquered finish (also comes in espresso), perf size,... downside: 1 drawer, silver protruding handle.....
love love love the open side storage, a-frame base, white lightly-distressed finish (avail in a stained tuscan brown),... down side-- drawer handle too "desk-like"
the fab side-- two concealed drawers w/no hardware, middle open storage, choice of a-frame metal legs (personally love the brass,.. so happenin'),... not much downside except the cost is on the high end at $849.00 ON SALE!
happy fab friday,.. until next friday, enjoy the weekend~
