The drawer is a little bit "sticky" since it's not on rails or anything. I think it's just something you have to get used to, since it really hasn't bothered us at all and we've had them for a few months now. It's also a lot better once you put some stuff in there, since the drawer has some weight to kind of slide on, instead of skipping on the way out and making hollow metallic sounds. :) Overall, we love these desks (and they're a good price!) so I'd recommend them for sure.

Hey everyone! Thanks for checking out our space :)

The rollin print is one of my favorites and I totally forgot to put it on the list! It's by our good friends at Bandito Design Co., who also made the little skull print next to it. Their work is online at

Hey, thanks for the great feedback everyone! It's so awesome to be featured here... we read AT every day so it's kind of a dream come true!

Here's some clarification on our intent with this collection. Our philosophy is that we don't need to label every single area on a purely decorative piece like this. That's what makes conventional maps so cluttered and unsuitable for display in a fine art context. We think of our work as an artistic overview of a geographic area, not as a technically complete representation of the region.

There are plenty of options out there for those who want a Rand McNally style political map, complete with every single boundary, countries, and capitals. That's why we created a map that retains a basic level of functionality while emphasizing its decorative potential.

Thanks again for taking the time to share your thoughts about our stuff. We really, really appreciate it! :)

Delagirl: I got the shower curtain at Urban Outfitters late last year. It doesn't look like they stock it anymore... boo! I love it because it reminded me of that birch tree wallpaper that's been popular lately.

j i: Nope, I didn't paint the shade. The CB2 pictures make the fabric look warmer than it really is. It's a very neutral bright white and does pick up on any adjacent wall colors. :)

Amberly: Thanks! It's an older frame from IKEA. I bought it probably 5 years ago. The original legs were super ugly so I added raw steel hairpin legs from

Thanks for the great feedback, everyone!

citizenaugust & others, yup, that's the Alex from IKEA. Highly recommended, kind of a pain to put together but it's a great piece.

j i, the pendant lamp is from CB2 and only $50! I shortened the cord quite a bit when I put it up.

HappyGoVintage, the lack of wall hangings is because the plaster-over-brick walls are a nightmare to drill into, haha. Also can't wait to have a more permanent place so I can swap out some of the IKEA! :)

I have the paint cans down in the basement so I'll check those out tonight and report back. Thanks again for the comments, such an honor to be featured on here!
