As CDM continues its hunt for the ultimate studio furniture, here's my favorite reader tip yet:

DUAL Furniture
in San Francisco has gorgeous custom birchwood furniture designed to
your specs. There's the usual DJ furniture — record cabinets and the
like — but DUAL wins out for cool hunters with its floating coffins,
suspended elegantly from the ceiling by wire. Now if only someone could
design something this lovely for laptops and keyboards. (Oh, yes, that
and "if only money were no object." Sure, we're supposed to be poor as
musicians, but . . . look at the pretty furniture!)
