small space solutions

i’m always looking for a great, compact desk, but this one really takes the cake. talk about perfect for small studios, dorm rooms and converted closet desks. they’re certainly not for everyone (especially those who need more writing and storage room), but if you live in a tiny apartment and need something small for short-term work this wallflower wall office by jonas and jonas seems perfect. via notcot.

    I’ve been looking for something like this for ages. My husband and I share an office and we’ve been on the hunt for a tiny little space for me to plunk my laptop down. Thanks for posting this! (btw, I’m in the LA area, so I hope you had a great time here) best, m

    brooke, google “carrie bicycle basket,” they’re sold in any moma store and other online stores. i walked into the sfmoma store with the intention of buying it, but found the green just not the right shade of green. :(
