5 of the best sawhorse desks

In the January 2014 issue of Canadian Living (hitting newsstands the first week of December), you'll find one of the sleekest, chicest interiors we've *ever* shot for the magazine. Designed by CityLine's super-talented Yanic Simard, it's a Victorian townhouse that was given a fresh facelift, from the party-friendly main floor all the way up to the stunning guest bedroom. One of my favourite pieces in the guest bedroom was this stunner of a sawhorse desk, which allows the bedroom to double as a home office during those periods in-between overnight guests:   Five of the best sawhorse desks

  What I love about the sawhorse-style desk is how effortlessly it lends itself to various interpretations. Although its origins are uber-industrial, the form gains a "contemporary boudoir" feel when realized in glossy white laminate and polished chrome, for instance. In fact, there are so many variations of the sawhorse desk on the market today, I just had to round up a few of my current faves.
