Legare modular furniture
Jenna's posts about modular kid furniture on Babygadget have got me thinking that I'd like to have modular grownup furniture for myself so I can change my work space configuration whenever I get bored and easily adapt bookcases and media stands to different rooms (I like to move furniture around when I get fidgety). Legare Furniture, makers of modular home and office furniture, promises that you can build an entire system in just three minutes with no tools or hardware whatsoever. Their reversible pieces, made of strong Baltic Birch in Natural or Espresso finishes, lock into each other easily and can be taken apart and rebuilt repeatedly without damage. The holes and rises on the various pieces allow you to feed through and hide cables in desk units and media centers.
Our friends at Treehugger like Legare furniture for another reason too: their production uses 99% of the raw materials, so there's minimal waste.
Prices range from $319 for a small media stand to $699 for a large media tower. Desks range from $299 to $589. The fully-built pieces look sleek and modern, just like the modular house of my dreams in which I'll be able to move walls and even ceilings and staircases around like giant Lego pieces.
