Get the Look: 42 Modern Desks For Your Home Office

I’ve been so focused on Florida (though not nearly enough, as I’ve yet to order rugs, shades, or decide on the pink problem in the bathroom), that I’ve neglected organizing and upgrading in Boston. Coming back in the fall from the Cape, I’m always bothered by the amount of stuff we have. Too. Much. Stuff. It’s particularly striking because not only is the place on the Cape a lot bigger, being a house instead of an apartment, it’s white and virtually empty.

Here, in addition to crown moldings and bookshelves lined with coffee table books (one of the best perks of being a blogger), there’s , well, everything. The piles of dishes still not put away from the bar mitzvah in February (because, after all, we’re having another one this coming February), our bicycles in the living room until it gets too cold to ride and we store them, etc.

I’ve been promising my younger son that I would work on his bedroom. Meaning, I would clear out all the outgrown clothing and extra bedding I’ve been keeping in there. Done! He has the upholstered armchair that I used to nurse them on when they were babies. It’s taking up a ton of space that would be better used for a desk. He’s starting to get a fair amount of homework, plus, like me, he’s very organized, so I think he’d love to have drawers where he can store supplies.

Our other son has a little desk from IKEA, which when it’s cleared, he actually likes to use (not for homework, though). When he was away at a boarding school program this summer he lived in student housing, with a room furnished in typical dorm style (by a company like Peelmount) that outfits dorm rooms with sturdy wood beds, desks, and dressers. It’s kind of incredible that those designs haven’t changed, in like, ever. Blocky oak stands the test of time, I suppose. In any case, I’m not looking for anything as practical as all that. A small, affordable, modern desk is all we need.

Here are 42 modern desks, almost all of them well-priced (and one very extravagant example).

Get the Look: 22 Gray Sofas (and Meredith’s Living Room)

I put Montage: 54 Living Rooms with Gray Sofas together last summer, but never provided a shopping guide.  I created the roundup when I started to work on my friend Meredith’s NYC condo. We did it all remotely, and I haven’t even seen it yet, but she recently sent me a photograph.

You can glimpse the edge of the one of the modern gray sofas, the Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams Nicholas sofa.  The turquoise Addison chairs are Jonathan Adler, the tufted wool rug Angela Adams, and the mirrored console, she purchased years ago from Horchow.

I included the furniture scheme for the room, which I also never  posted. In addition,  of course, there are 22 modern gray sofas upholstered in leather, velvet, tweed, flannel and more.

Get the Look: 72 Bar + Counter Stools

As I mentioned yesterday, we chose the bar stools for Meredith + Daniel’s  kitchen. Although we arrived at an obvious and eternally perfect classic (Bertoia!), I looked at a lot of examples of bar & counter stools. Lucky you, they’re detailed below.

First though, let’s have a lesson.

What’s the difference between a bar stool & counter stool?
If you’ve ever shopped for kitchen stools, you’ve noticed that they come in two heights. The standard height for a bar stool is 30″, while the average height for a counter stool is about 26″.

How to choose the right height bar & counter stool?
You’ll want 8″ to 12″ of leg room between the stool and the bottom of your counter/table.

Consider the overhang.
You might find that counters with a very deep overhang call for a slightly shorter stool.

How much space should you allot between stools?
For stools 16″-18″ wide, allow about 22″ of space between them. For stools 19″-22″ wide, allow about 24″ of breathing room. Leave even more space for swivel stools and stools with arms.

Get the Look: 46 Modern Dining Tables

Now that Meredith & Daniel’s dining room schemes are complete, I’ve put together my favorites from  my exhaustive search for dining tables. I’ve included a bit of everything here—round, elliptical, and rectangular—including tables that expand and fold up. Most are modern in style, some are vintage, materials run the gamut from scrap wood to marble, and prices range from $179 (IKEA!) to a piece by Autoban for De La Espada for $12,595.

I’ve been a huge fan of #3 for weeks, and it was just in a kitchen I wrote about for the Boston Globe Magazine. I can’t help but love the Saarinen (I have the side tables and they’re just so satisfying). I really love the mix of marble & rough wood, not to mention the price, of #1. #16 is pretty, and #44 and #46 are great reflections of current trends—dipped and geo. Any favorites here, or that I may have left out?

Get the Look: 22 Sconces that Stretch

I’m trying to come up with a spot in my apartment where I could install one of these super long-armed wall lamps. I’m over the industrial factory look (for my own space anyway). I like the bare bones minimal ones and also the Italian vintage styles from the ’50s, though I fear they’re a bit on the whimsical side for me.  I think #15 is my favorite. Maybe in the family room, over the sofa? That room could use a little architectural-like interest. It’s much more practical than an annoying floor lamp.  Many of these are pricey; the style hasn’t been knocked off  in a frenzy by the usual suspects yet, so I didn’t really find any truly “low” options.

Get the Look: 65 Modern Candlesticks and Candelabra

For years I’ve adored the Lucite pretzel knot candlesticks by Dorothy Thorpe—a decade ago I had stashed a tear that features one prominently, and I still have it. Lately I’ve been interested in brass candelabra with joints, as well as simple Danish candlesticks in teak or painted wood. There are tons of newer, contemporary ones too, like Muuto’s green raw wood candelabra and the chunky chrome or glass tubular pieces that refer back to the ’70s. Following up on yesterday’s Montage: 44 Rooms with Candlesticks & Candelabra, here’s a shopping guide for 65 different styles.

Get the Look: 34 (Mostly) Modern Sculptures

Bronze sculptures are expensive, modern or new, but there are examples of vintage and contemporary pieces in other mediums, like wood and ceramic, that are well within reach. I love the well-above-my-price-range biomorphic bronze by Antoine Poncet, as well as Kelly Wearstler’s cheeky legs. And the Finnish sheep in smooth black wood is adorable.

Get the Look: 55 Coffee/Cocktail Tables

I’ve already given you the rundown on our living room coffee table situation yesterday. I realize I provide photos of our apartment when I talk about it, but that would require more tidying than I have time for, not to mention camera skills.

We sort of need a coffee table for our family room too, but I hate to take up the limited and cozy floor space. And it would be in the way during Oakley’s playtime. (My cat, not my kid.) I daresay side tables must suffice. In any case, here are 55 coffee/cocktail tables. More than a few are amazing.
