Perfect For: Rooms with low ceilings

What We Like: Well-loved look

What We Don’t Like: Shelving isn’t as easy to access

Made from manufactured wood with stainless steel legs, this desk features an industrial look. It is available in several colors and finishes, including oak and rustic brown. You can also pick from four sizes, ranging from 47 to 63 inches wide. It’s ideal if you’re on a budget due to a reasonable price. A side shelving unit with four shelves is included.

Designer Advice

The rustic look of this desk is perfect for creating a cozy atmosphere in your study - we recommend the rustic brown option. The X-detail legs have an industrial vibe to them, so opt for a chair with a similar vibe.

What Users Say

Perfect For: If you work from home full-time

What We Like: Plenty of storage

Available in five color choices, including black and light gray, this sleek desk has a clean-lined and minimalist vibe. Designed in an L-shape, its larger silhouette makes it a great choice if you use more than one monitor. It is made from manufactured wood with a steel base. In terms of storage, there’s a long and narrow hutch above as well as a shelf below and another small shelving unit to the side.

Designer Advice

Though not the best option for smaller rooms or apartments because of its size, this desk is nonetheless a brilliant all-round option. We recommend the light gray finish for a chic and contemporary look.

What Users Say

Needed a bigger desk and this was the perfect choice. Fits really well with enough space to do everything! Highly recommend it if you're looking for an office desk.

Perfect For: Apartments

What We Like: Will tuck away in a corner

Not So Good For: Large computers

Crafted from a blend of manufactured and solid wood, this desk may be small but has everything you need. Its compact design will slot into an unused corner without fuss, making it ideal for small spaces. It features two shelves in a hutch above and a longer, ongoing narrow shelf beneath the main desk area. Alongside a keyboard tray, this desk comes with USB ports for convenient charging.

Designer Advice

The mid-brown color of this desk is versatile and fresh, but we think it would look best in a warm neutral space. Choose a chair in a deep tan leather finish for a subtly industrial look that won’t overwhelm a small area.

What Users Say

Just the right size! Love the wood and black finishes! Extra nice touch with the 2 USB ports also!

Designer Advice

This desk is the definition of modern living, and it is perfect for rooms with limited space. It can work well in your study, office, or even the kitchen. The multipurpose desk can be folded down when needed and folded up to open up the space when it is not being used. While we can’t stop obsessing over the versatility of this desk, constant folding up and down can become a hassle.

Designer Advice

This desk takes up a lot of space but provides tons of storage and functionality. We love the open-shelf concept as it leads to so much available space. It has a sturdy, durable, and spacious build that’ll hold your desktop, books, lamp, and stationery securely. However, the desk unit does not have a full bookshelf, which was a disappointment.
