If your humble abode only has room for a single table, Bernotat&Co's new Doppeldecker is a double decker thing of beauty that hides your work and mess under a hinged lid. So gone are the days when you simply had to slide everything off onto the floor when it was time to eat.
Inside the table are compartments for organizing documents, as well as cable management and sockets for connecting electronics that need power. In fact the only concerning part is the hinged gap running down the length of the table which would allow spills to flood into your workspace. You seal that with a waterproof gasket, and then you've got a deal.
