The four-piece collection is made from premium, all-natural materials and is the result of months of research concerning how professionals work and organize their environments. We’re talking lots of cork, wood, and aluminum as beautiful, thought-out finishes.

“You shouldn’t need to bulldoze your things out of the way to get to work,” said Grovemade co-founder Ken Tomita through a press release.

It starts with the Desk Shelf, which raises your monitor to a more appropriate eye level and frees space on the top of the desk for extra storage. The Walnut Desk Shelf features blackened cork hand-dipped into sumi ink, which results in a handsome black hue. The Maple Desk Shelf is lighter in appearance and takes its cues from the natural cork color.

Next, the Wool Felt Laptop Lift is an excellent place setting for the core piece of your office environment: the computer. German merino wool felt and authentic full-grain leather help protect the exterior of your computer from scrapes and dings with movement. A similarly built Desk Pad makes a great coaster or home to a wireless mouse.

Lastly, the Desk Tray gives a home to smaller items like pens, pencils and a notepad that seemingly find themselves all over traditional desks.

The entire setup would surely give you the best-looking college dorm on campus or even for a new apartment. It’s a great way to get maximum functionality out of a minimum setup without breaking the bank. Each piece is available separately, but the entire collection can be had for under $400.

Everything is lightweight too, so transport is a breeze.

All these stellar design pieces are on sale now over at Grovemade’s online store.

The 30 best biographies to add to your reading list
Some stories involve incredible, larger-than-life characters. These are the best biographies ever written.

Writing a great biography is no easy task. The author is charged with capturing some of the most iconic and influential people on the planet, folks that often have larger than life personas. To capture that in words is a genuine challenge that the best biographers relish.

The very best biographies don't just hold a mirror up to these remarkable characters. Instead, they show us a different side of them, or just how a certain approach of philosophy fueled their game-changing ways. Biographies inform, for certain, but they entertain and inspire to no end as well.

The 10 best Adam Sandler movies (they’re not all comedies)
From Uncut Gems to Happy Gilmore, these are the movies that have defined Adam Sandler's career to date.
best adam sandler movies ranked adamsandler

What is there left to say about Adam Sandler? The Sand-Man has been a fixture of pop culture for well over 20 years, having worked first on Saturday Night Live and then broken out in a series of farcical, wonderful comedies in the years after his departure. He's one of the biggest comedy stars on the planet, and we know that in part because he's made plenty of movies that nobody should be forced to watch twice.
For every movie that has immediately been relegated to the trash bin of history, though, Sandler has also made an indelible comedy or a surprising turn into drama. While he may have emerged looking a little bit like a one-trick pony who relies on funny voices for cheap laughs, Sandler turned out to be far more complicated than that. He is a genuinely great actor whenever he wants to be. The rest of the time, he's content to make silly movies with his best friends.

Every ‘Creed’ and ‘Rocky’ movie, ranked
Where does "Creed III" fall on our list of the best "Rocky" and "Creed" movies?
Sylvester Stallone and Michael B. Jordan in Creed.

Good sports movies are fairly easy to come by, but great ones can be almost impossible to find. Over the years, the Rocky and Creed franchises have produced movies that fall into each of those categories. When they're good, the movies in this franchise are among the best fighting movies ever made. Even when they're only okay, though, they're still pretty great sports movies.

With the recent release of Creed III, it feels like the appropriate time to take stock of the entire franchise and determine which Rocky movies rise to the top and which ones sink to the bottom. A great Rocky or Creed movie can take a wide variety of  forms, but what matters most is the emotion it evokes in the viewer, and how authentic those feelings are.
