This Week’s Must-Haves: A Luxe Desk That Travels Anywhere

This week, the Adweek team is highlighting a travel-ready folding desk, one-of-a-kind Bluetooth keyboards, spooky drinkware and more. Take a look!


The Field Desk, $1,850

When it comes to recording ideas on the fly, laptops and tablets might score high on the portability scale, but sometimes you need to hunker down at a desk with pen and paper in hand. The Field Desk from Best Made Co. will keep you prepared for such occasions, with a folding design that opens up to create a surface perfect for writing, drawing, doodling or whatever strikes your fancy. Designed in collaboration with H. Gerstner & Sons, the 110-year-old Ohio company known for its handcrafted wooden tool chests, and illustrator Ross MacDonald (you've probably seen his work in publications like Vanity Fair or The New York Times), The Field Desk is made from kiln-dried American cherry and features a shoulder strap, felt lining and multiple inner compartments for organizing your pencils, paper and other writing implements.

Antiqued Brass TV Easel, $2,495

Whether you're loathe to make holes in your walls or just want to display your TV like the high-tech work of art that it is, this antique brass stand fits the bill. Built to hold screens up to 60 inches (or 170 pounds), the easel rests on an adjustable metal and wood base and four casters so it can be easily moved from room to room. It can also be used to display mirrors, paintings and more.

Orée Board 2, $129

Bring some of the great outdoors to your desktop with the Orée Board 2, a stylish Bluetooth keyboard fashioned from a single piece of solid maple or walnut. The keyboard's surface is coated with a layer of food-safe varnish to protect against stains, but is intended to age naturally and will develop a weathered patina over time.

Skull Ice Molds, $15

Get in the Halloween mode with these skull-shaped ice molds. In addition to adding a dash of spookiness to any drink, the skulls' large size means they'll melt more slowly than standard ice cubes, so they won't dilute your beverage.

Hudson Valley Hard Goods Headphone Stand, $79

Shelled out for a pair of pricey headphones? Treat them right with an equally luxe headphone stand from Hudson Valley Hard Goods. Handcrafted from walnut and brass, it has a built-in leather wrap for keeping cords corralled.
