School Desk, Redux

Remember when you were in school? You'd scribble down musings on Shakespeare, Monet and the Old Testament in your notebook, while Mrs. Beauchamp would stand behind you, judging the length of your skirt and slapping your hand with a ruler?

This slick, gorgeous schooldesk was created by French designer Julie Arrive for Singularite and brings back memories of the idyllic European school experience you never had. Sign me up.
