Our 2021 Acrylic Lap Desk design builds on the beautiful, functional desk and bed tray we produced in 2020. Each lap desk is flame polished and hand bent to one of 4 sizes, with a selection of cup hole options or no cup holes. Designed by Jon Pattillo // fabricated in the AvecMode Studio on South Congress Avenue.
All photos feature the Large size desk with different cup hole configurations. Please see the size specifications below and in the images for the sizing measurements.
We recommend measuring by person to determine the best fit of lap desk. For example, you can measure the height from a couch surface to the base of one's bent arm, for a traditional desk fit, or measure the height of a couch surface to the top of one's legs when seated or folded, for a desk fit to accommodate leg room. We've found that each desk size can fit different heights and ages of people depending on torso and arm proportions and personal preference. We do not provide for returns or exchanges, so please take time to measure before choosing a desk size.
In 2020, we had surplus material available for upcycling. We don't have this surplus material in 2021, so the desk prices for the 2021 version have increased to include the cost of acrylic. In addition, the desk version we sold in 2020 had a removable insert - we've removed this design feature in the 2021 version. Our small lap desk is only available now in a nested set of one small, one medium, and one large.
MEDIUM: 6.5" tall x 24" wide x 15" deep / 7.8 lb
LARGE: 7.5" tall x 25" wide x 15" deep / 8.6 lb
XL : 10” tall x 25 “ wide x 15” deep / 9.8 lb

We include the cost of the box itself ($3) and the cost of the UPS Ground shipping, in the calculated cost for shipping. UPS Ground is the most cost effective way we've found to ship our desks in the continental 48 states.
