Rothke Fold-Down Desk

At A Glance:

A throwback to midcentury design, the Rothke Fold-Down Desk combines the convenience of a secretary style desk with the looks of that eponymous time period. A natural ash veneer brings calming wood tones to the unit while the cubbies provide ample storage. The fold down desk is a compact size, making it great for laptops or tablets. While the Rothke Desk isn't ideal for all day working, it's perfect for jotting down notes on the go.

Perfect For:

  • Small apartments or lofts
  • Entryways or hallways
  • Kids rooms

The Bottom Line

The Rothke Fold Down Desk isn't an ideal workstation. You wouldn't want to buy this item with aspirations of using it every day for 8+ hours. It's perfect for short stints of note taking or internet browsing, while still providing convenient storage. If you need a full-time desk, you may want to look elsewhere, but if you need a work surface that you can use in passing in constricted spaces, the Rothke fits the bill.
