  Now that you’re expected to work from almost anywhere—your sofa, an airplane, a rickshaw in Kathmandu—and your “desktop” fits in the palm of your hand, are actual desks still necessary? We thought it over, called in six of our favorites, and came away answering, emphatically, yes!Desks are more than places to park your unopened bills or pound away at your laptop; they are receptacles for your creative dreams, holding the promise of inspiration and focused attention every time you pull up a chair.

  There are lots of handsome chairs out there, but sitting beauties that cost $250 or less are a rarer breed. Our picks run the gamut from traditional (the wooden, Shaker-inspired Salt or the Thonet-designed Era, the quintessential cafe chair) to the downright futuristic (we’re looking at you, oddly anthropomorphic Dr. Yes). We sat, swayed, shook, stacked; we hefted them into the air; we typed, ate, and made grand conversational hand gestures. See our 13 favorite affordable side chairs. Photos by Peter Belanger.

  While the debate rages on between the benefits of free play versus structured play, we can all agree that these play structures make 
any modern family home so much 
merrier. For a little perspective—in more ways than one—we turned to the Dwell team’s toddlers, Cedar Foss, Oliver Blue, and Madeleine McKinley-Hinson, who were all more 
than happy to pick a house, move in, and let the good times roll. See how the five playhouses fared in our product review. Photo by Peter Belanger.  Photo by: Peter Belanger
