I spend so much time beating up on furniture designs in the Weekly Design Roast, I almost forget there are still plenty of people out there doing good work. Here are some of my faves from this year. (Note that I'm getting sick of the same ol' Salone, so this list is probably not going to resemble the ones on the other design blogs.)
Speaking of repurposed materials, when I read "pallet wood" I typically move on. But Brad from the Make It Youtube channel managed to turn the stuff into an attractive desk, with a hidden laptop storage built-in.
