You’ve heard me talk about desks quite a few times (here, here, and here), but I still haven’t found the perfect fit yet. I definitely want to get one for the living room, but I’m thinking in our next flat if we set up a office/music studio, I’d also like to try out shelf desks (are they called ‘shelf desks’?) in the dedicated office space.
Why? Because it looks slick as all get-out. Also because it would be a great way of defining work areas with minimal intrusion on the central area of the room, which could be used for doing blog photography, yoga, band rehearsals, etc. I picture having them on two opposite sides of the room: one side dedicated to music, one to business.
In these photo examples you’ll notice that the shelf desk lends itself to conveniently-accessed shelving overhead and below. What I’m thinking is that, given that the objective of an office is to do work (imagine that!), it would be good to create a space that “feels” professional and gets you into the right mindset when you enter.
What do you think? And how do you reckon one goes about creating the desk surface– kitchen countertops?
