Big Box Retailer: Restoration Hardware’s Steamer Trunk Secretary


There are pros and cons to everything. When it comes to working at home, the flexibility is countered by the oppressive sense that you never get to clock out. It can often feel like a gilded cage.

This weekend Restoration Hardware’s latest catalog arrived, otherwise known as 500 pages of greige (that’s gray + beige). The innovative + eyesore highlight that grabbed my attention was this desk/secretary styled like a steamer trunk. Now you won’t feel chained to your desk, but squeezed-in. And probably sent to the wrong destination.

I’d venture that it keeps you motivated for vacation, except that freelancers don’t get vacations.
