The Great Indoor

Posted on Dec 8, 2014 by

Our work habits are changing. Whether full or part-time, more and more of us are working from home. The functional nature of a home office or study often means that style can be in short supply. But invest in a good desk as a focal point, bring in some top-notch task lighting and add plenty of smart storage solutions and you will actually look forward to going to work.

The unusual Indoor table is hand crafted from a set of vintage exterior wooden doors. The beautiful Italian doors date from the end of the 1800s and are solid chestnut. When they are closed, the piece functions as a dining table with space for four to six people. When open, it transforms into a spacious desk.

Inside, iron straps have been inserted into the old door panels for holding paperwork. Two storage drawers, one fixed and one sliding, have also been added, with the larger drawer sliding in both directions to create additional work space. The antique doors remain exactly as they were and the bold dash of blue varnish on their inside frames, together with their original hinges and latch, really adds to the character of this door-table-desk. Each Manoteca creation is one-of-a-kind and completely hand made in Italy. Each is numbered, signed and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity. If you are looking for an investment piece, this is it.
