Tucked-Away Office Space

A well-proportioned cabinet does double duty.

This Social Study desk, by California designer Barbara Barry, boasts a simple form and quiet face, and would fit perfectly in a small condo living room or cramped home office. "I love to create pieces that can stand the test of time because they are simple, elegant and well-made," says Barry. "This is where beauty supports function. When can you hide all the things you need from a desk in style?" This piece even has a leather-lined pullout perfectly designed for a keyboard or writing surface.
