Organized or arranged?
Arranged. I live in a Modernist style New York City apartment, so my dining area also doubles as my “office.” I have a long D’Urso racetrack table on casters. Each morning, I set myself up by positioning the table perpendicular to my collection of design objects, maximizing the surface area and creating a designated workspace. A suspended Alvar Aalto pendant lamp provides extra light as the daylight fades away.
That said, to stay organized, I am partial to Muuto’s playful Platform Tray and recycled plastic fiber Restore Basket. When I’m done working for the day, I roll the table to the center of the space, parallel to the wall, and it’s once again a dining table for six. This subtle spatial transition is important—it delineates work and leisure hours.
