Introducing the MILK Grande Desk

Get to know The MILK Grande Desk. Designed by Søren Rose and manufactured by Holmris, it has a sleek minimalist look, but is very high functioning and serves several purposes. The fact that it sits atop a pedestal means it can be used as a large workspace for one, but can transform into a mini-conference table and has room for up to four people to pull up and work at once.

Since health experts have recently called sitting all day “the new smoking” in terms of danger to your health, having a standing option is optimal (the adjustable column is an option). Whether you like to sit in an ergonomic desk chair, perch on a yoga ball or decide to get some standing,  squats or ballet poses in while tapping away on the keyboard or drawing, the MILK Grande Desk can accommodate you. The height is adjustable to suit all of your needs.

The desk is crafted of MDF beautifully finished with high gloss lacquer. Get to know all of the secrets the MILK Grande Desk is hiding — check out this 360º look at all it can do. As for storage, the desk has seamless built-in cubbies for tools, pencils, tablets, folders, notebooks, charging accessories  and even cord management. This keeps the clutter well contained and easy to reach so that you can concentrate on the task at hand.

Options like these cubby lids are sold separately.

Blu Dot Sale! Save 20% Through November 9th

It’s that time of year — Blu Dot is 20% off now through November 9, 2014! If you’re not familiar with Blu Dot, chances are you’ve seen their work around and just didn’t know it. Two best friends, John Christakos and Maurice Blanks founded the Minnesota company in 1997 and it has taken the design world by storm ever since. Founded on the simple concept that Good Design Is Good, creating pieces that are practical and just plain cool.

If you haven’t checked them out, Blu Dot is one of the best companies to follow on Pinterest, as they apply their discerning eyes to all good design and share their creative collaborations. They also ran a two-week swap meet, where folks could propose trades for their products. Successful fans proposed trading Blu Dot products rendered in cross-stitch, carrying a Rook Table Lamp around Boston for a week and even learning a ukelele song to in turn, dedicate to them.

Plus, their product shots always inspire and awe. This one for their Nook Bed is one of our all-time faves:

Their Strut Tables remain one of the most popular items, whether in coffee table form as seen here, dining room table size or console table:

Here is the Rook Lamp one fan was willing to take everywhere with her for a week. Sounds worth it, but personally, I’d rather just save 20%:

No deer were harmed while photographing this shot, which includes a Strut Dining Table,  a 4-Drawer Shale Credenza, a Delta Rug and a couple of Real Good Chairs in Copper:

The best thing about the philosophy that Good Design Is Good is that these pieces are timeless. They aren’t something yo’ll chuck during a move, but rather, something you’ll hang on to and treasure for decades. Blu Dots pieces slip into not only contemporary and modern rooms; they work with traditional, transitional, collected and rustic rooms too.

You have a few weeks to ponder which pieces you’d like to invest in, but do it while you have a chance to save big.
