    Grant Sonnex is a furniture designer/maker located in Gloucestershire in the UK. Grant was an award-winning BBC producer, but decided to move on and train with renowned furniture designer maker David Savage. He then established his own fine furniture workshop making contemporary fine furniture. That piece above — “computer desk for Apple iMac” — is one of my favorite pieces.

    Really cool! :apple: It looks about as usable as OS X.

    What's wrong with a normal desk? Or even a table?

    There is no money, or exposure, in it.

    That's a nice desk. Would be nice if you could extend that.. How to say it, extend it as much as the rest of the length of the desk :p

    Do you know the name of that desk by any chance? It's just what I need and haven't been able to find it even when I looked round IKEA last week!

    Does that pic include a 'sneak peek' of the new MacBook Air 11.6" in black?

    Before I give my final opinion, I'd like to see more of an angled shot so I can see the top surface better - because from the side view I'm not liking it so much.

    I have a basic Ikea VIKA CURRY desk, in white. I love Ikea :)

    Not really sure about this desk, though. I prefer solid colours to the 'wood', unless it's something like Beech.

    We have a traditional desk / hutch for our systems. If wondering, Backup APC 1300VA LCD is under the desk.

    Being a "desk", it can hold many supplies (like CD/DVD discs) as well.

    I'd buy the same desk again - except with a much better chair. Its hard bench can be a "real" PITA :eek: at times. Other then its wooken surface chair, its desk area is perfect - for us...

    Here's my iMac desk. Very minimalist and I feel like I have a little Apple store in my apartment when my iMac is sitting on top of it.
