Particularly people in lofts, flats, and apartments cherish every square foot of space. Families are also moving closer to town and needing more flexibility in room design where perhaps home office furniture and a gym is combined. The product here is a concept from Ligne Roset designer, Eric Jourdan, called "Hyannis Port". I absolutely love this setup in white lacquer. The chair is a great match and creates a wonderful work environment. The way the bottom is finished off with a metal rail is very cool. It creates a bit of openness that differs from most desks which finish all the way to the floor.
