Christmas is right around the corner! Since I'm a writer, I work a lot from home and my workspace is just as important as is the writing. And because my designated area is in need of some renovating, I've come up with a wish list of some Design Within Reach (one of my favorite New York City furniture stores) workspace products I would just LOVE to have.
1. Eames® Hang-It-All® Designed by Charles and Ray Eames, produced by Herman Miller®, the Hang-It-All is the perfect wall accessory to hang up all those winter accessories - hats, scarves, mittens, etc.; let's not forgot the purses and tote bags! I'm in love with it's chic yet playful design. A definite must-have on my wish list!
2. Renew™ Executive Sit-to-Stand Desk Created by designer and sculptor, Brian Alexander, this table lets you go from sitting to standing and back again so you can keep moving throughout the workday – vital to improving energy and focus and to lowering health risks associated with a sedentary lifestyle. Its motorized lift operates easily with an intuitive lever: pull up to raise, push down to lower. Beyond adjustability, Renew also sports ample legroom and beveled edges for eliminating bumps and bruises, cord management for a streamlined profile and concealed screw heads for a sleek finish.
3. Spinneybeck® Cowhide Rug These natural haired cowhide rugs were founded by Charlie Manchee in 1962. Made in Italy, each one is unique, with its own distinct size, shape and tones. The rugs come in three colors, but my favorite is the tricolor one. And who doesn't ADORE a gorgeous cowhide rug?! You've got to have one of these to keep your feet toasty all winter long! I bet MaQ would find it extra snuggly... :)
4. Modo Table Lamp I love Jason Miller's simple and innovating lighting. The Modo Collection features hand-blown glass globes with slight variances in shape and color, which make each piece unique. They have a beautiful industrial feel and would complement any workspace.
5. Freedom® Task Chair with Headrest in Vicenza Leather Doesn't this task chair look divine? With a height-adjustable headrest, the headrest version offers customized support for the head, allowing for proper eye-level positioning when working long hours at a computer station - something I could really use with all those crazy hours of editing and writing! Niels Diffrient's chair also has an adjustable seat and back, as well as a natural life-and-release action, making the armrests easily repositioned for ultimate comfort and support.
6. Sapien Bookcase Bruno Rainaldi's Sapien Bookcase is perfect for someone (ahem, me) who has a lot of books but little space to store them. By holding texts horizontally in a vertical stack, the tall Sapien can accommodate up to 70 small and large books in a very compact footprint. (The shorter bookcase will hold up to 50 books.) I already own two, but with one more I can align them all together, enhancing it's rib-like visual concept. They're my favorite bookcases and look great in any room, not just your workspace!
7. MW Magazine Rack Designers Laurent Serin and Javier Gutierrez Carcache's minimalist and low-tech approach keeps objects simplified. And I couldn't agree more. Who wants all that clutter? I got to put my Vanity Fair's somewhere! I also truly love how it takes its name from the way the letters “M” and “W” are represented in its shape, depending on the viewing angle. Clean, lightweight and durable, it’s a sculptural solution for storage.
