At A Glance:
You're an alien. You're stranded on Earth, far from your home, and you're lonely. You get an apartment. It's boring, very unlike your home planet. You're depressed. You decide to change something, just for the sake of changing it, just so you can feel like you're alive again. You look for a desk. You find the Blu Dot Desk 51. Finally, something reminds you of home! Giving away the rest of your mundane furniture, you use Desk 51 for everything from dinner to watching your favorite shows on the computer. Life has meaning again.
What's To Like:
Or, you're human - and you want something cool, a stylistic adventure, preferably one that's actually functional. Desk 51 features a cutting-edge design that leads the imagination beyond the confines of a boring environment - and it's even got a keyboard tray. We dig this design; we love the keyboard tray and expansive 56" wide desk surface.
What's Not to Like:
If you have a smaller space, Desk 51 probably isn't your cup of tea at 56" wide. Check out the Stash Desk for a space-conserving option.
The Bottom Line:
Startlingly creative and wonderfully functional, Blu Dot's Desk 51 with its integrated keyboard tray and distinctive style are a great option for a style-forward home office.
