If having the right work environment means junking that garage sale desk you’ve had for years, then by all means, hop to it. But you’ll need a (cough) suitable replacement, preferably one that doesn’t have a pack of melted Life Savers glued to the calculator in the top drawer. The Ralph Lauren Highbridge Desk ($12,000+) is, needless to say, a bit of a step up. With beautifully polished stainless steel sawhorse legs flanking a huge 3/4-inch thick glass desktop that measures at an expansive 84 x 40 inches, it should do adequately in your humble mansion or corner office with one hell of a view. The next step is procuring stuff fancy enough to actually put on it.
