Take a Memo: A Modern Secretary

Whenever I think of a secretary desk, I think of something old-school and traditional. My friend Ryan just moved into a place in Long Beach that has a built-in secretary, and I just about died of jealousy (or Los AnJEALOUSy!). Secretaries are also great for a small space; when closed they take up less room than a traditional desk, plus it'll hide your mess from sight.

But if you're looking for something more modern, PointClickHome's featuring a funky secretary desk found on DesignSpotter.

This robin's-egg-blue-and-white wooden wonder is named "Alley" by its designer, Isabel Ersa Hallerstedt of Sweden, and was recently shown at the Stockholm Furniture Fair. It features seven cubbies, plus a few drawers to sock away all your stuff, and the two front legs fold out to support the drop-down desktop. The asymmetrical interior makes it more playful than your stereotypically stodgy secretary, so if you want some whimsy to brighten your mood when you sit down to pay your bills, go down this Alley.
