All work and no play...

Since I have been sitting at a desk for most of my work life, researching beautiful things online, I thought I would post about my favorite work tables. There is nothing more inspiring than a chic work space, and it all begins with the desk.
I love glamorous, shiny, modern ones best (surprise, surprise...) Gabriella Crespi designed the ultimate desk in brass shown above. Other favorite desk designers include Paul Evans with his Cityscape series, Milo Baughman, and Donald Deskey - that's really his name!
The home office/dressing room of Aerin Lauder sums it up with the hand painted wallpaper and Gabriella Crespi desk in the center. I drool over it every day!
For those of us on a budget, the white lacquer desk from West Elm will have to do. You can cover it in brass or chrome accessories, beautiful fresh flowers, and a cool modern lamp.
They say if you do what you love, you never work a day in your life...ciao!

I just saw your comment on La Dolce Vita. I didn't know about your blog until just now! I JUST recommended that another designer/blog friend stop into your showroom tomorrow, actually. You have a great place and it is always on my recommendation list for Nola design stops!
