    I'm in the process of looking for a stylish desk to accompany my newly designed room this summer... suggestions anyone? I have this behemoth of a desk right now... I want something organic and relaxing... but still usable. Damn, I'm descriptive.

    What kind of space do you have? What's your budget? What kind of style? Is there an Ikea any where near you? They have tons of options, they're inexpensive, but don't expect it to last more than two years.

    I have an eye for detail like you'd never believe.

    How about a small shrubbery? It's certainly organic and relaxing.

    You can always mount an LCD monitor to the wall to save space and to look cool.

    Heh.. well, my room's about 10' x 12' (give or take a bit). Budget.. I'd like to keep it low, but I'm open to spending a bit of money. Mostly I'm looking for ideas... no Ikea within 300 miles though.

    WTF do you do to your furniture? I grew up near the first Ikea in the USA, and as such I have some stuff from there, stuff that's lasted over 15 years. Got an Ikea bureau right in front of me in fact. Don't think there's any clothes in it though lol!

    BTW, did you know you can varnish the top of a small bookshelf with clear nail polish? Don't ask.

    Actually nail polish is really important in lab work too: we use it to keep slide covers stuck to slides. Works a charm and doesn't interfere with the optics.

    Nail polish: the next duct tape? I wonder

    Wired is a smart guy - someone recommended the same for me when I bought a corner stand for my office and it hasn't received any scratches since then.

    You gotta realize that most girls are like super paranoid about their nails ; they've gotta make that stuff strong.
