Dining Nook & Work Space

An oversized table serves as a desk, too.

In designer Mazen El-Abdallah's narrow townhouse, a large walnut table bolted to the wall acts like a built-in and works overtime as both desk and dinner table. A Serge Mouille light doubles as sculpture.

See more Double-Duty Offices in our photo gallery, plus see video tours of El-Abdallah's main floor and second floor.
