A passion for food + fashion

Tabula Rasa

I did it. I ordered my dream desk—a George Nelson Swag Leg Rectangular Table with a walnut veneer top. I’ve thought about this desk for so long, imagined the stories that would be written here—the gorgeous sculptured chrome legs sending up electromagnetic waves of inspiration to anyone seated at the table. But beyond the sheer beauty of the thing, this table represents new beginnings. A literal blank slate. In the past year, I’ve made big changes professionally. Leaving a full-time office job that I loved—and all the daily mayhem that goes with the territory—to a new chapter working from home, which brings its own brand of chaos and distraction. As our home office continues to take shape (drywall goes up today!) and with my new desk en route, is it crazy that I already feel a sense of calm and (pending) order? I guess that’s the power of good design.
