I was searching for tables & desks in various design websites and blogs and I realised how difficult it is to come across one that is beautiful yet functional and not being clever just for the sake of it. There are tables/desks that make me go, “Oh, that’s very clever! It can do this / become that”… and then I thought about how it will be used in a real life context and then it will lose its ‘magic’ when I think about the inconvenience(s) that might arise. Hope that made sense. :P
However, I did come across quite a few tables/desks that I like very much and I realised a recurrence – they’re all wooden and quite whimsical. yeay! :)
