The Compact Home Office

The Compact Home Office

In this age of mobility, with laptops, smartphones and online access wherever we go, it is vital that we have a space away from our offices that we can work. Whether you are a work-a-holic, or just need to send a quick email, its great to have a home office to access and focus completely on the job at hand. The trouble is, with the majority of us being city dwellers, our urban homes don't always come with that extra office-space square-footage.

Recently, on our Kia Designs Team visit to Decorex, we discovered some great ways to accommodate you ideal home office, without needing an extension, ideal for a project we’re working on at the moment!

Hartô presented their beautiful Wall Secretary Desk Gaston, which we all absolutely fell in love with! Its made of MDF and Plywood, veneered in luxurious oak, with matt painted draws in a range of fun colours. Its curved edges and simplicity makes it sophisticated enough to appeal as the perfect compact home office. But its quirky and fun assortment of colours from grey to yellow means it would also look great as a kids study or homework station!

Made.com have their own take on the Compact Wall Desk, just as stylish and cute but comes in a little cheaper at around £150, The ultimate space saver, and beautiful paired with a colourful stool or pouf.

And if you'd prefer something a little more desk-like, Swoon's Jakob desk in Mango wood and Aged-Steel offers another great space saving solution that neither breaks the bank or compromises on style.
