How Far We’ve Come: 10 Cool Pieces of Student Furniture
Back when most of us were in college, we were lucky to have so much as a hand-me-down desk and a proper laundry basket. It’s no secret, though, that the millennial generation is nothing if not design-obsessed, and in an age of never-ending credit cards, if parents won’t chip in to help them decorate their collegiate space, they’ll take matters into their own hands anyway. So today, we’ve rounded up a series of 10 student furniture suggestions for your budding brainiacs as they pore over acceptance letters and decide where life is going to take them this fall. A little punny sarcasm and silliness (see “egg rug” and “numberless clock,” below) mixed with chic small space sensibility, and you’ve got a collection of perfect furnishings for your son or daughter as they learn how to take on the world, one midterm (or kegger) at a time.
