Is your working from home set up needing a little zuzh for September? Bring some back to school energy with our round up of the chicest home office desks. 

The Chicest Home Office Desks

Before you buy. Remember the house rules: don’t skip the boring parts of actually measuring your room and the desk to get a true understanding of the scale of the desk that you need.

Obviously aesthetics are important, but let your lifestyle and your line of work lead the decision making.  If you’re work requires paper and storage: don’t go for a swish minimalist desk without draws that you might regret buying later. Smaller desks may be more affordable, but consider that you may regret not going for a larger investment piece later down the line. All things to consider.

Then also think: do you need to buy a *brand new* desk? Have a look at Vinterior, eBay, Punch the Clock, Narchie, then can consider Gumtree and Facebook Marketplace for some second hand options. Then if you’re in the market for new, Soho Home, Pinch, The Conran Shop are some investment premium options. Then for more affordable options, head to  John Lewis, Made.com, and Ikea.

Add a touch of studded texture to your space with Soho Home’s Marena Desk. It’s got a bit of a 70s antique feel to it, that’s finished with gold brassy handles. But don’t think that you’ll have to make compromises on practicalities: as there’s tonnes of storage space.

lucite desk for home office working

Kave Home

A bit of a hack for small flats, is a bit of peek a boo see through furniture that’s going open up your space. Anything glassy, lucite, or perspex will create a gorgeous minimalist look. And if you really want to paint the town red, why not match it with a Wassily style Chair. Because you may as well not do things in halves.
