Ellen Richardson, a graphic designer and Pleasant Plains resident, recently took her Craigslist hunting skills to the next level with the launch of her blog, Listed District. Listed District offers daily DC Craigslist findings of everything from Mid-Century and Industrial furniture, to bikes and the utterly strange. Every week Ellen is going to share a roundup of some Phenomenal Finds with PoPville.
A desk is a dangerous place from which to view the world.
-John le Carre
Controlling clutter is one of my biggest downfalls – I hope I’m not the only one. If not kept in control, almost every surface in my house (especially my desk) is quickly covered in everything from sticky notes to unopened mail, to old pen tops. This is why I love drawers – because, when my desk or night stand becomes overwhelmed, I can briskly shove all of that stuff, Mary Poppins-style, into the abyss (I know, it’s a ridiculous way to live and Mary Poppins would not approve).
Organized drawers and a clean workspace can be a pretty priceless thing for many people, and doing it with style is just the icing on the cake. Sitting at my clean teak floating-top desk makes me feel like I can accomplish anything, and it never fails to get compliments from visitors. Today’s Listed District finds offers up some stylish and functional storage and surface options – check out that steal of tanker desk!
