Designer Michael Solheim has created an attractive furniture piece called the Architect Desk that is both practical and fun.

If you recall your childhood, you'll remember that Mom and Dad always told you to stop drawing on the table. With the Architect Desk, you're encouraged to do so. The top of this counter is a chalkboard surface that allows you to jot down important notices, make plans for your next building or doodle when you're procrastinating. The entire table is supported by steel frame tubing with a back crossbrace for additional support.

The Architect Desk works well for adults who are constantly writing down important notes, but this works just as well for kids who are looking for an excuse to doodle on the table. Stats for Chalkboard Counters Trending: Older & Mild
