    Hello. This is a great selection. I knew most of the tables but not the “Slimdesk” and I really like this one.

    A while ago I designed my own desk. Maybe you can tell me what you think?!

    I love the tree table. All those simple desks are gorgeous but they lose all that minimalist beauty when you realize that real computers have wires.

    I like the Bulego Desk. The overall look of the desk is reasonably simplistic.

    I thought this was going to be about HTML Tables, probably because I’m working on a project that has a buttload of tabular data to be organized asthetically
