Reader submission by efice32. Interesting reasoning behind using this Ikea kitchen island as a desk.
Personally, I can’t just sit or just stand when I work. I love to shift back and forth between the two. I also like to spread out so I can see everything I’m working on at once. As a result, I searched far and wide for a big counter-height desk that would accommodate standing or sitting in a tall chair. It took a while to find something in my budget, but I ultimately found this. I love it. The desk is clear because I do most of my work on my Retina MacBook Pro that travels with me.

Table, light and chair from Ikea. Table is Galant and chair is Markus.
And, while I love my little desk, the conference table area might be my favorite. I scored the chairs at a vintage store in Seattle, and they’ve made themselves at home here, adding a major dose of glamour to the all-Ikea tables and storage.

I was amazed at how hard it was to find a traditional standing desk without the motors and the extra features. So, with a little help, I decided to build my own. It sits at the perfect height for standing and provides a great environment for work.

This retro workspace is a fun office nook at a kids’ musical school. I wanted to create a quick “stop and work” space, using the IKEA Malm occasional table for flexibility/movement, two Eames-style molded plastic chairs, and combo Behr paint colors in Aqua Spray and Shoreline Green.
The colors are calming and fun for any kids who come by the work space, while the furniture lines are clean and sophisticated.
