Consider this. If you’re one of the lucky men who aren’t “assigned” a desk by some faceless human resources minion (work from home) then heaven forbid you relegate yourself to IKEA furniture. This antique French postal desk from Restoration Hardware isn’t a desk for the faint wallet. The design is simple yet effective. A broad hand-tanned leather work surface is mated with natural steel (with a shelf for your CPU) and topped with a detachable hutch with 25 metal cubbies in staggered sizes accommodate. You can even use any chair with it, so long as it’s the built-in leather swing-out stool. Add a military chalkboard map for the full Napoleonic effect.
