The company makes chairs, desks, tables, lighting fixtures, storage options, beds, and every other type of home and office furnishing you can think of. Even better, they make it all at a great price without sacrificing anything in the way of looks, durability, or craftsmanship. They're an emerging power in the modern and contemporary American Furniture market, and Smart Furniture is excited to offer their products to our customers through our online store. Buy your own amazing Blue Dot furniture today!<br /><br />Since their inception, Blu Dot has had a fun and fascinating aesthetic. When you see one of their products, you can often recognize it immediately as one of their designs. They believe in modern looks, crisp clean lines, solid colors, and beautiful construction. Everything they make comes from the contemporary, fresh perspectives of their designers, and the furniture they're making is really turning heads in the design community. <br /><br />Smart Furniture has partnered with Blu Dot for the last several years in yet another attempt to bring great ideas, great designs, and great furniture to our customers online. Blu Dot furniture is some of the best around; it's modern, it's comfortable, and it's very affordable. We're proud to partner with them for many reasons, but none bigger than those three. They believe in the same things we do, and they make amazing furniture for the contemporary home and office. They're relatively new, having been founded just 13 years ago, but in a little over a decade they've made a profound and lasting impression on the modern American furniture market. Whether you're looking for tables, desks, chairs, lighting, storage, or any other kind of home, office and public space furniture, you can find what you're looking for in the catalogue of Blu Dot furniture.<br /><br />Blu Dot was a business born of necessity, just like ours here at Smart Furniture. We first opened our doors because we wanted to give customers access to the products they were buying; we wanted them to have a say in the design of their own furniture, aka, design on demand. Blu Dot furniture has a similar philosophy, and they're focused on excellence and affordability. All of the furniture they make comes from the same original, inspiring idea, the idea that started the company; beautiful furniture, and beautiful design, should be attainable. It's that simple, and that revolutionary. <br /><br />The company was founded by three college friends who were freshly graduated and ready to move into new homes and apartments. In college they had all bonded over their mutual interests in design, architecture and artwork. When they were ready to start their own homes, naturally they wanted to outfit them in a way that reflected their ideas, their tastes and their advanced notions about design and personal space. But there was a problem; they couldn't afford the great furniture they loved, and they didn't like the low-quality or big-box furniture that they could afford. For many customers, this is a very familiar dilemma. But the three friends decided to do something about it. They decided if there was no supplier for their fairly common demands, then they would have to make the furniture themselves. And that's how they came to form Blu Dot. <br /><br />In the years since the company was founded, in 1997, the three friends, John Christakos, Charles Lazor, and Maurice Blanks, have gone on to create some of the most comfortable, innovative, and beautiful modern furniture on the contemporary American scene. Blu Dot furniture is just as lovely and well designed as any other modern furniture maker, and the business has stayed true to it's initial imperative; to keep the furniture amazing and the prices low. They created elegant desks, funky chairs and seating options, cool lighting systems and decor. And to top it all off, they made it affordable. That solved the problem they'd had right after college, when their taste level was much higher than their income level. Business born of necessity; just like Smart Furniture. <br /><br />Blu Dot has mastered the art of making affordable furniture that never looks cheap and that can boast levels of craftsmanship and aesthetic excellence measuring up the standards of any furniture maker in the business. Like Smart Furniture pieces, Blu Dot furniture is heavy on quality and low on cost. It's a business and a whole system of furniture that believes in democratic design, and in serving the customer first and foremost. Beautiful design shouldn't be the sole province of museums and high income Americans, it should be available to everyone at a reasonable price. Blu Dot furniture believes that, and so do we at Smart Furniture; that's why we make such great partners, and that's why we're so happy to bring you the whole roster of amazing Blu Dot furniture online.</span>

Cant Desk
by Blu Dot

At A Glance:
The Cant Desk is one of only a handful of recently produced desks that combine affordability with a design that's proportionately and stylistically suited for the modern home office. Well-made and cantilevered, the Cant Desk measures just 3'6" wide, which help it to fit into the space you've got available for your office. Walnut and powder-coated steel.

What's To Like:
Economy of space and a strong frame give the Cant Desk a stable base and minimal footprint. We love how the top shelf organically happens as an extension of the legs, making it seem more integral even than the desktop. Well-organized from concept to reality.

What's Not to Like:
If you need a spacious desktop, the Cant Desk probably isn't your cup of tea. Check out the Desk 51 for a larger option.

The Bottom Line:
Especially effective in limited space, the Blu Dot Cant Desk is a great new look for an often neglected area of your home. With its upper shelf and cantilevered desktop, this small modern desk is an especially good option for apartment dwellers.

  • Overall dimensions: 34" h x 42" w x 25" d
  • Worksurface height: 29" from floor
  • Top shelf: 8" deep

Comments about Blu Dot Cant Desk:

This desk looks amazing in person - much nicer than I expected. The top is a lacquer-finish metal with perforations. Really easy to assemble - only 4 parts and a bunch of screws with an allen wrench. Took me 10-15 minutes to put it together

Very speedy delivery and well packaged - no damage

  • Q:

    Can the top surface (grated, colored white or red, not the writing surface) hold enough weight for two 23" or 24" monitors to be placed there side by side?

    Based on the average monitor weights this would likely weigh about 16 pounds on that top surface in total

      A:

      Blu Dot does not weight rate the Cant Desk or any of their pieces, but they are safe for standard residential usage. Just to be safe, you should double check all the shelf screws for tightness. If the monitors are placed directly in the center, you might see a little flex/deflection, but it won't collapse the entire desk. Moving them towards the edge will help decrease the flex. Additionally, anchoring the monitors to a wall should help if safety is a concern.

      A:

      Yes, the Cant Desk must be assembled after delivery. It is quite simple with 2 u-shaped legs that must be attached on either side of the top shelf and writing surface with screws, and assembly instructions are included in the the shipping box.
