View all 10 Photos

These aren’t just desks; they’re inspiration. They give a boost to your workflow and your sense of connection to the tools of your trade, whether you work in a traditional office or in the comfort of your own home. Here are ten of GBlog’s top desks to do the job right.

  1. Worknest by Wiktoria Lenart

This modular piece of furniture fluidly transforms from a desk to a gardening table or some combination of both. The white plastic dividers and planters are readily customized and repositioned on the wooden frame.

  1. Homework Desk by Tomas Kral

Made of ash wood and aluminum, this strikingly simple desk features a gutter-like catch all that wraps around three sides of the table. It collects cables, books, and office supplies, eliminating the need for visually bulky drawers and putting one’s accessories all in plain view.

  1. Landa Desk by Samuel Accoceberry

Taking a different approach to office clutter, the Landa Desk hides supplies inside seamless compartments and nests wires inside a strip of brush bristles. The red of the bristles accents the natural finish of the solid oak.

  1. Wynd Writing Desk by Piet Houtenbos

Practical as well as polished, this European Beech wood desk unfolds to present a compartment for keeping thin items such as a notebook or laptop. Simply press the wooden center, where a peek of the green felt is visible, to push down the storage mechanism, activating the hardware and revealing the secret level of office supplies.

  1. Didrik Desk by Leko Design

A versatile design, the Didrik desk features a rear panel that can lie flat or be elevated. In the upright position, the panel exposes the back of the sliding steel drawer, so that the items on that end can be easily reached.

  1. Bis Repetita by Cyril de Moulins

This wooden secretary desk is a looker in navy. The classic design houses modular storage on both sides of the two-tier tabletop.

  1. Laura Desk by Phloem Studio

Made to order in Portland, Oregon, the Laura Desk is a minimalist design with three nooks and two sliding drawers with built-in dividers. The customizable piece can be crafted from one’s choice of walnut, cherry, ash, or white oak.

  1. Maya Desk by James Melia

The Maya Desk is a smooth design with hidden drawers and a shallow dish carved into the tabletop. The two-tone design is made from a single solid material, timber or Corian, and can be finished with American black walnut, white oak, or ash polish.

  1. Retro Desk by Danish Retro

Standing on pencil-thin legs, this wedge-shaped desk contains two drawers and a secret compartment that can be flipped up to display photos, letters, and more. The timeless design has rounded edges which give a nod to vintage styles.

  1. Falling Dansu Desk by Josepdh Walsh and O’Donnell

Think of this wall-mounted bureau as a box with everything you need in it. The roomy design features shelving and a red desktop, both of which can be adjusted for comfort and maximum utility.
