Thinking On A Higher Plane

When inspiration strikes less often than normal, it’s time to shake things up.

Working on a different plane can do the trick. Upgrade your workspace with one of these architect desks and start looking at things from a different angle.

CB2’s Chalkboard Architect Desk is a table made for doodling. Scribble them on your computer or, better yet, on the chalkboard covered surface and relive your kindergarten days. After all, everything you really need to know you learned back then, right? ($149, CB2)

Take the vintage route with the 1920’s French Drafting Table from Restoration Hardware. Each handmade reproduction is one-of-a-kind, crafted from solid wood. Inspired by architect's tables from the Années Folles era, the six foot wide tabletop can be adjusted to five different angles. Limited quantity available. ($795, Restoration Hardware)
