The Intimo Secretary Desk might sound like a place your assistant would keep his or her sexy underwear, but it is in fact a modern bureau-style desk for your MacBook (or any laptop, I guess – not that PC owners would have this level of style).
It’s gorgeous, and when you’re done working for the day you can close it up and grab your iPad for some light reading.

What I really love about the Intimo is that it combines an old idea – the fold-out desk – with modern conveniences like cable routing and a neat little shelf for keeping peripherals and accessories close to hand. And of course you can leave your mess inside for tomorrow, and hide it just by closing the door.
That’s not all. The shape of the cabinet would let you use it as a standing desk whilst closed, as long as you don’t mind your MacBook poking out over the front edge.
Finally, even the price is good. Usually the desks I like enough to write about turn out to cost thousands. This one is just $400. That’s close to Ikea pricing (well, Ikea bead and kitchen pricing, at least).
