Tiny cabin, tiny workspace: simple and well organized!

About the desk, recently purchased at a local used furniture store... Looks to have been made in the 1970s by a cooperative called Community Playthings which

has always manufactured products right here in the United States. It all started in 1947 in an old barn in Georgia, supporting a little cooperative community. Not long after, the co-op joined a larger group in New York and brought the business with them. Today, the “community” in Community Playthings is a group of families who earn their living crafting toys and furniture for children. We manufacture primarily in New York and Pennsylvania, with wood responsibly harvested from the Northeastern U.S.
