A simple wall-mount box, this object seems to hover in space and without any decor or detailing to speak of – until you fold down the front, slide out a tray or pull out a drawer to reveal modest, secretary-style functionality.
Dubbed the Ledge by UrbanCase, this is a perfect little wall desk or media center for a small apartment or guest room. The slide-out surface is big enough to work with a laptop (or single record deck), the side drawer is well-suited to papers or other odds and ends, the top can be used as a shelf and a hidden cord system helps keep the appearance clean and modern.
While there is room for a chair below and it can be used as a work surface, it also looks good as the support element for a wall-hung, flat-screen television suspended above. The design comes in a bright red color as well as natural wood.
More minimalist than their other designs (like the sliding-door cabinet, emergency cocktail shelf and joint-emphasized chair shown above), the bare-bones aesthetic works in its favor to make it a more multi-functional interior design objected suited to a variety of purposes.
“Designed by Darin Montgomery and Trey Jones for Urbancase, the award winning ledge maintains a compact profile while providing a pullout work station and storage cubby. a cord management area accommodates a full size power strip and is concealed with a felt lined pencil tray while the cord routing slot reduces clutter on the desktop. when the ledge is not in use, the drop down door folds up to hide the work area. Solid wood sides and top with plywood bottom. Available in domestic walnut or white ash. made in the USA. Mounting hardware included. Allow 6-8 weeks for delivery via architonic.”
