Hide your home office in plain sight with the Blackhawk Secretary Trunk ($4,300). Inspired by mid-century aircraft, the Blackhawk is handmade using polished aluminum panels, which are held together with exposed steel screws. Inside, the trunk features a black cotton canvas lining, a multitude of draws and cabinets, a sturdy, fold-down desk surface, and inset drawer pulls. Oh, and it weighs over 500 pounds, so it also doubles as a great thing to roll down the stairs towards encroaching enemies.
A slight redesign of a modern classic, the De Sede DS-80 Daybed ($5,700) is once again ready to enhance the looks of any room in which it's placed. Built upon an anthracite stained, satin lacquered solid beech frame, the DS-80 features SEDEX upholstery, covered in your choice of a wide variety of high-quality leathers. While it works fine in a minimalist guest bedroom, we're more fans of using it for double duty in the office, serving as both a comfy seat for guests and an impromptu afternoon napping spot.

Inspired by vintage luggage trunks, the Cuscino Lounge Chair ($1,750) isn't so much a chair as two pillows — and an optional bench/ottoman/pouf — that are linked together via leather straps. Features include sandwich foam internal padding for a mix of comfort and support, your choice of natural or black straps, and a quilted leather exterior. Matching, multi-piece coffee table not included.
It's always a little scary when someone sets out to update an undeniable classic, but in this case, we think it turned out okay. First introduced in 1958, the Eames Aluminum Lounge Chair ($1,600-$2,350) recently got a slight refresh, as it's now available with a graphite or white powder-coated frame and white or black Spinneybeck Vicenza leather upholstery. Otherwise, it's still sporting the same sleek design, four-star base, and sling seat that's made it an icon of design.
Why anyone would name a bed after an airport is beyond us, but it's no mystery why you'd want to lay down to sleep in the Mash Studios LAX Bed ($2,250-$2,450). Consisting of a simple, attractive English walnut platform bed and a wall-mounted headboard with white doors that slide out to reveal cleverly-hidden shelves, it's sleek, understated, and minimal — and perfect for any modern bedroom.

Growing tired of your solemnly square Expidit shelving? Add some attitude back to your home or office with the A2 Angle Shelf ($1,750). Made from white MDF, the Angle measures in at over six feet wide, and offers a total of 18 differently-shaped and -proportioned cubbies in which to proudly display your books, toys, and other trinkets.

Don't worry — despite the name, the Howe Whiskey Barrel Oak Dining Table ($1,900) isn't some tacky whiskey barrel with a glass top affair. Instead, this sizable — 84" x 35" x 29" — table is made from solid white oak salvaged from Canadian whiskey barrels, and otherwise features a classic, clean design with mortise and tenon joinery and sturdy 4" x 5" legs.
With vinyl continuing its unlikely comeback, console record players have become a hot commodity — hard to find, and even harder to transport should you be so lucky to stumble across one. To make things easier on yourself, order the Mad Men-approved Draper Media Console ($250). When paired with the right components — like the pictured Jensen Wood Turntable ($90) — it goes from being a fine piece of '50s-style furniture to a full-fledged retro sound system, complete with hinged top for easy turntable access and rear wire management holes.

We've all got things in our homes that started out life in Thomas Edison's head -- like light bulbs, music players, and video cameras. Now you can bring a piece of one of Edison's factories into your home in the literal sense with an Edison Reclaimed Timber Table ($280-$350). Available in four sizes, these limited edition side tables are made from red pine wood beams salvaged from Edison's Wisconsin phonograph factory, then shaped and finished by hand before arriving on your doorstep, ready to serve as a table, stool, nightstand, or simple conversation piece.
Add a touch of 1960s flair to your office, lounge, or living area with the Shell Chair ($2,500-$3,400). Designed in 1963 by Danish design legend Hans Wegner, the Shell is made from bent plywood, with a wide, wing-like seat, tapered legs — of which there are only three — and a reclined back that's perfect for relaxing.
It might be described as office furniture, but we're pretty sure the Hudson Credenza ($1,600-$1,900) will look great in any room of your house. The simple, clean design is crafted from solid cherry, maple, or walnut, providing it with a handsome durability that will endure for years to come. Mix 'n match the wood, base, and knobs for a funkier, less-conforming look.
Clean lines, sturdy construction, and interesting materials — all phrases one could use to describe the Herman Miller Goetz Sofa ($4,400-$4,900). Wrapped in either black leather or grey divina melange fabric, with either walnut or ash veneer on the back, respectively, this neatly modern couch features polished cast aluminum legs, 68 inches of seating, and a timeless design that will look good in nearly any room.
