Many of you are now staring at an indefinite or permanent work-from-home arrangement, and now might be a good time to update your work setting. I always like the feeling of “turning over a new leaf” in the new year — clearing my desk, emptying my drawers, etc. For a long time, it was difficult to find a desk anywhere because we were all scrambling to accommodate work-from-home, but now, there are many great, petite-sized options on offer that will ship in a reasonable amount of time. All of these are $600 or under:
THIS FARMHOUSE STYLE IS ACCOMMODATINGLY SMALL TO TUCK AWAY IN A BEDROOM CORNER, AND TEMPORARILY ON SALE!
BARGAIN BUY: $250, TINY, AND SCANDI-CHIC
Next up: a proper desk chair. I absolutely love my $319 style, available for shipping in early January. I have it in the saddle brown and I swear it looks like it could cost north of $1,000. (Ralph Lauren’s Manhattan headquarters vibes.). It is insanely comfortable…and did I mention $319? I think it might be the best-looking option out there if you’re in the market. I spent a lot of time searching and thank you again to the Magpie for the tip of hat on this!
A few other great finds:
