Our 6 Favorite Home Office Desks
While it’s important that your space be a pleasing one to spend time in, a desk is intensely personal. With more and more people working from home, having an office area that is pleasing to the eye is a good way to reduce stress and inspire creativity. The 6 desks below were hand-picked to help you get your creative juices flowing when deciding what desk is best for you. They run the gamut from built-in and freestanding, to corner, sit-to-stand, shared, and re-purposed. There’s a little bit of everything here to help spark your imagination and create an office space that represents you and your distinctive personality.
1. Re-purpose a Dining Table
Think outside the box when it comes to finding an original desk to compliment your office space. We chose this Molecule Dining Table from houzz to modernize this home office and add a pop of the unexpected. Paring this 72″ dining table with the existing built-ins with brass accents gave this space an instant sophisticated update! Tip: Off-center the top of the table from the base so there is enough leg space for you and your desk chair.
2. Corner Desks When Sharing Space
When sharing a space it’s nice to have your own desk to organize your things and use as you see fit. Use your wall space from corner to corner to give each of you more room to spread out and claim your corner. These (2) Corner Desks from Ballard Designs positioned side-by-side fit the bill perfectly! We pared them with a matching 50″ Credenza, and separated the credenza from the desks with a vintage-style cabinet that doubles as a printer stand and stores everything you need to have on hand – paper, ink, stapler, etc. The cowhide executive chairs, zinc tops, and reclaimed wood wall covering gave this space its distinctive personality.
3. Flexible Corner Desk
The Pilsen Graphite Corner Desk from Crate&Barrel gives you the flexibility to adjust to different room layouts by letting you position the shorter side to the right or left. We love its industrial mix of glass and steel with modern angles, clean lines, and minimalist detail. This desk is neutral enough to hang out in any space and not steal the show so you can let your personality shine in other areas. Arrange multiples in a U shape for even more work-space and surface area.
