So you finally have that new place now, and you’ve almost got its “look” down. That vintage bookshelf now holds those books you bought at that independent book store because you thought you’d read them one day, but you probably never will (“oh I’ll totally read Ulysses!”) No matter, they look great there, now all you need is a good desk. Having the right desk helps energy to flow when working on a project: whether that’s writing a book, drawing in acrylics, or even doing your taxes. Here are three of our favorite desks that are good additions for any creative space and can help you work on whatever your next project might be.
Say you’ve moved into a fairly small single bedroom apartment and you are concerned about space. No worries. We’ve got the lovely Elgin desk for $104 (yeah I know, too good to be true!) that is perfectly sized for a small apartment. The cool thing about this desk is that it’s versatile enough to serve as a living space piece or a bedroom addition. It has a soft light wood that allows for a slight rustic visual appearance and the white legs give it a modern flair. We suggest pairing this with the Marta Barragan Stool From Urban Outfitters for a fresh pop of color. If you’re more into the traditional office chair give the Lumisource Office Chair a try. This lovely office addition has mid-century all over it...not to mention it’s 360 degree turn ability is helpful when moving from project to project (or for spinning around when you are procrastinating- uh, I mean... “Brainstorming.”)
Ok so maybe you are not one for procrastination, and you are all business. Poly and Bark carries the Bridgeport L-shaped Desk for $242 which is great for the person who is ready to get stuff done. The design of the Bridgeport Desk values efficiency and space and is perfect for the creative at home. The L-shaped desk fits neatly in corner spaces, and works well for a home office set up. This particular desk can easily fit your computer monitors as well as a printer with room to spare. The clear glass and sleek lines make it look business chic, bringing style to practicality. If you don’t have the space for an L desk but still need a desk that has a bit more utility, then you should check out the Esser Writing Desk from All Modern. It features beautiful metal legs and is compact in size but spacious enough for your office supplies and even for those extra books you have books: I see you Moby Dick. Looking for to shed a little light on your stunning modern desk? Pick up this Iskoff Table Lamp and you’ll be beggin to start work! So there are three of our favorite desks that would work great for filling that extra space you have. Now get to work and do something cool and creative! But first maybe read those books. No? Ok. That’s fine too. Write one of your own then!
