Nobody wants to bring work home, unless of course, you’re one of the fortunate souls earning doubloons as model photographer, single malt critic, or Jennifer Aniston’s brassiere fitter. But when it just can’t be helped Crate & Barrel’s Reese Tobacco Compact Office ($480) offers a minimalist solution that trumps working on the kitchen table. Most would never guess that the sleek-looking drawer is actually a versatile workstation that allows go-getters to put the finishing touches on custom PowerPoint animations in the comfort of their own home. The tempered-glass top provides a convenient work surface that complements the pullout shelf for a keyboard or laptop. Underneath, there’s a storage drawer for office accessories, and a bigger, hanging letter-legal file holder on the bottom for those with a healthy paper addiction. Sold in a rich tobacco color, it will easily fit into most contemporary rooms without looking out of place. Unfortunately, the same thing can’t be said about you hunched over it at 4:00 a.m.
