This desk design’s attention to detail makes it perfect for organization addicts!

A regular desk with a drawer seems just plain drab compared to the uber-cool OLLLY desk! Not only handsome, but it’s also designed to accommodate all your modern devices and not-so-modern apparatuses.

Olly Desk by Pavel Vetrov features multiple perfect little niches in your table desk that holds your stationery in place for you. Along with this, there is a small cut out that holds all the wires and cables from a laptop, computer, or other equipment in the center of the table. Who needs to buy more organizers when your desk is so mindful of your needs? We are in love already. Aside from a pull-out drawer at its center, it also has openings dedicated to propping up your tablet, phone, or other slim techs for easy viewing that takes up less desktop real estate than laying them down flat. In a sleek ebony and oak combination, it’s a chic and functional office option you can get here!

Designer: Pavel Petrov for Zegen
