It’s the beginning of a new term and, for many, the beginning of a new, hybrid way of working. Why are we featuring small desks specifically? Because people are asking about them. But if you are looking for something larger, do check out our full range of luxury desks. Even though many of us are back to work as (almost) normal, it seems that working from home is going to be a much bigger part of everyday life for many of us. People – and employers – have realised that working from home really has its benefits. Going forward, it may well be that the new normal includes a blend of being in the workplace and working from home. If you are someone who spent months on end working from home, you will have an idea of what works for you and what doesn’t. If you’ve been struggling to work in a less-than-ideal space, now is the time to re-plan your home workspace to make it fit for purpose. And, if you haven’t already, take a look at our Hints and Tips for working from home.
Small Desks for Versatility
We are increasingly being asked about versatile and small desks. People are looking for small, compact desks to create a working zone within another space, something for a small home office or maybe an extra desk to accommodate more than one home worker. Children may still need to work from home in the coming months – and having their own small desk is an essential for homework anyway. Customers want an item of luxury furniture that will double up as a small desk. It has to be something that looks striking and eye-catching, not functional and not something too bulky that will take over a room. So, we have looked not only at small desks but also console tables, which tend to be less deep than a normal desk. One thing to look out for if choosing a console table to use as a small desk is the height. A desk is usually around 75 – 80 cm high. Any higher and you risk working with hunched up shoulders, causing neck and back pain. This is why kitchen tables or counters are so often unsuitable.
The Best Small Desks
So, this is our selection of the best small desks for working from home. Remember, with the exception of our Showroom Collection pieces, all are available in alternative veneers, leathers or fabrics. You’ll see that some are desks, some are console tables. We’ve chosen them for their compact size, their versatility and, of course, their stunning good looks. We have given dimensions for each and, where the height is greater than 80 cm, it is only due to an extra storage or drawer space above. The working height is within the 75 – 80 cm zone. We have gone for desks with drawers, shelves or additional storage space so you have somewhere to hide away all those office necessities that you don’t want forever on display.
