Stand-Up Station

For folks on the run, a stand-up message center like this one designed by Fairfield, Connecticut's David Raymond may be the answer. Messages and reminders are tacked on the cork backsplash, and three-ring binders containing calendars, recipes, and take-out menus are stashed in open bookshelves (not shown) recessed in both sides. The three center drawers of graduating depth hold pencils, papers, "and everything my kids need to get out the door in the morning: hair clips, teachers' notes, and money for pizza," says this armoirelike kitchen unit's owner. Cell phones and other portable electronics are recharged via outlets built into the backsplash.
