Restoration Hardware, I presume?
"Living out of a suitcase" taken to a new level. Though this steamer trunk office from Restoration Hardware is damn spendy at $2,995, it definitely still falls under the "tiny" category. A whole home office in a space as big as your shower, and it's closeable and moveable too!
The "Mayfair Steamer Secretary," featured on The Office Stylist, makes me think of something Dr. Livingstone would have brought along on his explorations -- if he really needed to bring his iMac with him. (C'mon, David, the MacBook is so much more travel-friendly! Well, not that they had either of those in the 1870s, but still.)
Even if you can't afford this beauty of leather and nailhead, you can still take away some inspiration from how compact this workstation is. Everything is kept neat and tidy in labeled cubbies of varying sizes, and the uniformity of their design lets the eye glide over them uninterrupted.
If only more offices used these instead of those awful gray-fabric walled cubicles. Work would feel a little more like a safari. (But only a little more -- most of us already have to deal with wild beasts every day anyway!)
