Last weekend in an email alert, I got an article from Washington Post about small, multipurpose furniture - DUH! Isn't that what citydwellers, college students, and families have been doing since forever?
This is their idea of stylishly compact. Fugly! I would hate for my home to look like a hotel. With ugly, grime-colored carpet and all. I don't like the shelving - way too high unless you have incredibly high ceilings. Too forboding. And they call it a "hutch." Ew.
I say bring back the secretaire. Or mechanical desks!
