It's orange and awesome

And it's from Walmart. Yes, people. Jenn Ski found this Adesso Stockholm office furniture, which has great reviews and is now on sale. I don't need it, but I sure do want it.

Oh my...and now I want it too! I've been looking around for a new desk, and that one looks pretty.

It IS awesome. It would go nicely in my son's room, too.

Love, Love, Love IT! It would go so well with my orange wicker baskets.

It's so cute. It really is a shame though that it's from Walmart.

Dariela said...

Soo cute! Love it, great find! I agree with other commenters though. It's a shame it's from Walmart :(

It is a shame it's from Walmart, as I boycott them. They are, however, really moving forward with modern style furniture. I was recently in the market for a crib for my upcoming baby (I'm due in a week) and Walmart has really attractive modern nursery furniture at reasonable prices. And supposedly it's quite well made for the price, while the Dwell nursery furniture for Target is supposed to be crap. I was seriously thinking of buying one of the modern Walmart cribs, but my bosses came through and bought me the Nurseryworks Loom crib. Yes, I have awesome bosses. Now I'm looking at that office furniture and wondering where I could put it. Damn you, Walmart! Damn you!

Wow! What a cheery collection-it reminds me of the fun colored furniture at Ikea. Thanks for sharing! :)

So could somebody lay out the reasons I'm supposed to hate Walmart? I've heard many people say they boycott it, but I don't think I've heard why. It's too far away to conveniently shop there, so I don't usually anyhow, but if I did want to shop there, what should deter me? Thanks.

jessica said...

i want to just eat up that desk!!! i just posted a blog about desks and wish i new about this one to add to my collection.

wunderbug said...

that's a kick ass desk.

while i've seen a bunch of walmart documentaries and am completely aware of the way they treat their employees and the negative effect they have on local economy, to be honest i can't afford to shop most other places.

OH and i totally forgot to mention that walmart has a version of ikea's traktor desk chair for $10 cheaper than ikea's retail price.

woo.

Megan. said...

ooh, i like these. walmart huh? wouldn't have thought so. the orange is perfect!

Tracey said...

Love it- and it looks like it came from IKEA- my favorite store! Walmart has a new line out that is not too bad, taking a look from Target's design influence, I think.

Jess said...

Thanks, Wunderbug.

Jennie said...

Ooh, me likes. Pretty nice stuff, and best of all... affordable!

Walmart?! You are kidding. I'd have guessed Ikea but I haven't seen any orange office furnishings in their new catalog. I boycott Walmart as well--ick. Very cheery!

Rachel B. Design said...
