We once featured a convertible desk that hid in the shape of a small freestanding cabinet, for those with more work to do than space to do it in. However, what if you don't even have that much permanent floor space to devote to a desk? Readers, especially those in New York, Dublin, or Tokyo, your wishes have been heard. This fold-out convertible desk ($199) actually lives on your wall when you're not using it. A mere six inches deep, it folds out to become a writing surface with supports on one side and to reveal a set of shelves perfect for things like envelopes, tape, and writing implements. Actually, we've already got desks, and we kind of want these too.
