Convertible Compact Desk

August 11, 2008

This compact desk from Crate & Barrel ‘looks like a 30″ cabinet but converts to a 55″ full-size desk, making it a clever solution for studio apartments and multipurpose rooms. A quick slide of its top panel reveals hard-working amenities. When open, the top of the cabinet reveals generous storage space for a laptop, plus cubbies with removable dividers to stow paper clips, rubber bands and other smalls. Cord cutouts in back let you charge iPods, laptop and cell phones. Below are a storage drawer and one letter- and legal-size file.’

‘Kattbank is a modern bench designed especially to conceal the cat litter box. The litter box is hidden within the contemporary lines of kattbank, which is cleverly vented to provide adequate airflow for the cat’s health, yet does not give up any offending odors.’

Storage

I have absolutely no storage in my bathroom, and anything I would get would have to be super shallow in depth. This storage shelf is only 9 1/4″ deep and I’d want the doors to come in the mirror option.

They also have a similiar concept for shoe storage, and God knows I’m always looking for some good shoe storage….

Flat Wire

March 18, 2008

This flat, low-voltage wire is so thin that you can add light fixtures or home-theater equipment wherever you want without cutting holes. Just stick it on a wall or ceiling and then conceal it beneath a coat of drywall mud and paint.

Continuing with things that aren’t usually very awe inspiring… check out this toilet. The bench toilet incorporates a sliding exotic wood panel concealing the fixture and doubling as a powder room bench.
