While Etsy is full of awesome little trinkets, we can't exclude some of the equally respectable furniture items that beat out Ikea any way you look at it. This desk is crafted from reclaimed douglas fir and recycled steel, so you don't have to worry about little kids in foreign countries losing limbs so you can have a nice, modernist table.
