Pros: It’s compact and curvy, and it lives up to its name with a small drawer for pens and supplies. Bonus: The drawer’s interior is painted fire-engine red, a happy surprise. One could say the desk is secretly wearing sassy underwear.
Cons: We are fans of flat-packing—it’s eco-friendly and cost-effective—but we couldn’t help groaning at this 48-item kit of parts. The bright side of DIY assembly: You can mount the drawer on either side, a boon for lefties.
