Desk/Work

Intimo Secretary Desk

Well, doesn’t this look promising? Compact desks are rather hard to find nowadays, so it’s refreshing to see one with a minimal design aesthetic that’s affordable. Plus, how lovely would it be just to close it all up once you’re done with your email/work? No tidying necessary, just close the hinge and you’ll not need to stare at your laptop and other miscellany. There’s a small storage shelf along the top and a hidden shelf along the bottom that will fit things like your laptop and phone.

Ping-Pong Conference Table

Brilliant! Now your conference table can also be a ping-pong table, thus saving space and encouraging ‘fun’ breaks for you and your team. The central panel either functions as the ping-pong net support or as a hide-away cable management, while drawers at either end house all the ping-pong (or meeting) supplies. How is this not a good idea?

Canteen Table Leg Set

Oh, what a predicament you’re in when you only need table legs. We’ve posted a few trestle options, but this Canteen set might just be the best alternative to the straight forward (and somewhat boring) IKEA legs. No need for a bracing system, as the leg fixes directly to the tabletop. Choose from 7 available colors. Each box includes 4 legs.

tld desk

This desk brings to mind the Primary Desk by Nathan Yong, doesn’t it? There’s a vast difference in pricing/materials/craftsmanship, of course, but they share the same idea of a small upper storage shelf. This desk by designer Jannis Ellenberger has hook-on storage: one white powdercoated shelf and lidded drawer that hang at any point along the ledge. (And, at $399 you definitely will save some serious cash compared to the Primary Desk at $1,800.)

Misewell’s new Grain Desk is right on par with the rest of their impressive collection.

JACK Table Legs

Table legs sold separately are always a good bet as you’re able to change out the surface to whatever suits your fancy. Plywood, wood, stone, glass, you name it, you can alter your desk/work top to whatever you want. These JACK table legs were named after the game jacks (reference there for you young things that have no idea) and will look excellent with whichever table top you prefer. The JACK legs are available in three finishes: Black, White, and shot blasted aluminum finish. And, if you’d like the table top included, there’s the complete Jack Table as well (custom sizes available, see website for more info).

Moorish Mosaic Table

Remember the Lagarta Stool? This table is from the same designer, Ana Mestre, and utilizes the same natural agglomerate cork, except this time the cork is printed with an intricate Moorish pattern inspired from the historical tiles of the city Beja.

Covet Desk

A glass top desk often appears sharp and sleek, but most lack drawers which can be a little annoying when it comes to desk miscellany. This desk has a drawer plus a storage solution built into its frame which solves that ‘where-do-I-put-my-paperclips-and-files’ question without sacrificing the clean look of a glass work surface. Available in Oak or Walnut.

MUJI Table

Where do you go for minimal furniture that doesn’t cost an entire arm and a leg? MUJI, of course. And what do you know, MoMA Store has this MUJI Table for $420, which is a pretty good price for a dining/work table. Made of ash wood veneer and MDF; easy to assemble.

28.5h x 59w x 11″d

Hathaway Desk

So, this looks pretty simple from the front, but what makes it stand out is the handy storage space in the back for power strips or cable management. Power strips aren’t the nicest things to look at, and a desk that has a specific space to hide that and computer cords deserve a mention. I suppose you could float it in a room as well (as shown by the happy guy in sneakers below), though take note of the perforated panel detail.

Metal Truss Work Table

This work table caught my eye the last time I visited West Elm (had to check out the Glass Greenhouse in person), and despite its rather small footprint, it’s a great price. While the size is a tad small for my own personal workspace, it would do well in a tight spot or as an entryway console.

Solid mango wood top with weathered finish; iron legs.
54″w x 28.5″d x 29.5″h.

Grove Office Center

This piece would be perfect for tucking away a home office. The size is big enough to hold a computer, accessories and files, yet it’s not too large… as in, it’s not a wooden behemoth crouched in the corner of your living room. There’s the mid century feel that most of us are fond of, and it’s handcrafted (domestically) of solid cherry wood, which means it’ll last long enough to pass down to your children/relatives.

Stash Desk

Well, hello there $399 little desk. Just enough room for the task at hand, this desk from Blu Dot hits the right note with its modern lines and low price tag. A pencil drawer keeps small tools corralled while the 42″ width and 24″ depth means it’ll fit in a small space without worry.

Animate Writing Desk

Hold onto your pants, dear, because this beauty is not stateside. I know, it’s so frustrating when not all beautiful things are available to us right away and without shipping fees, but, such is the nature of our world. So, if you live in a European country or if you have loads of cash, consider this writing desk by Young & Norgate. The sleek silhouette has its drawer mechanics exposed, making a feature out of the function. Sized for your correspondence needs (laptop or pen and paper), there’s adequate surface and storage space, with an optional cable well hidden into the back. Having a desk like this would make answering emails less of a chore and more of a pleasure, I’d think.

Slope Desk by Jenk Design Office

I’m really digging this new Slope Desk by British via Norway designer Thomas Jenkins.

It gestures at traditional sloped drafting tables with a downward angled surface and adds two hinged doors revealing felt-lined compartments for storage and organization. Two included wedges create a level surface for holding pens and your favorite drink. Solid maple legs support a desk surface constructed from a mix of birch veneer MDF and plywood.
