Apartment Therapy on small space desk solutions

“As tasks at hand get bigger, the space available on your desk seems to become smaller. When your workload is outgrowing your desk, there are a few ways to expand usable space. Just look up, down or sideways and think out of the box.”

Up? Apartment Therapy offers that: “There’s no reason ceiling-mounted storage, traditionally used in a garage, can’t be installed inside.”

Down? Many options, including our Horizontal Freudian Slip: “Buy a ready-made desk caddy that mounts or hangs off the side of the desk, like this one from Utretcht, this inexpensive option from Bed, Bath & Beyond, or the Freudian Slip from Tom Bihn (meant as a briefcase insert, but works great as a desk caddy, pictured above).”

A Week in Montreal

Zeek and Rachel packed their bags and took off on a week-long trip to Montreal earlier this year.

When he’s not in Montreal doing karaoke, Zeek is the Director at SHEP Films, the people who worked with us on our Smart Alec and Synapse/Ristretto/Swift videos.

impluvium: Empire Builder Review

 

Forum member impluvium recently graced us with this review of his new Empire Builder. He writes:

“It stands up beautifully by itself, even when empty, and the handles (which really do magically fall together for easy pickup) are super-comfortable. While it can hold a remarkable amount of stuff (more than I would want to carry!), it doesn’t feel too big, or unwieldy. And, of course, it’s beautifully made. It has the feeling of being a bag that I’ll happily be using 10 years from now.”
