Space saving “pencil desk” from West Elm.
Cathy Collins awesome writing nook in her Arkansas attic.
Cathy cleaned out a storage space with a cedar ceiling to create this quiet writing nook. The antique chair is from Something Simple, a shop in town.
One item of feedback I received recently is about insufficient postings that contain NO computer on the desk. There’s actually a decent amount of those desks here but I decided to make it easier to locate. So I have added a “Computerless” category down the right column under “Quick find by:.” This category will get updated along the way but already has a nice archive of about 70 or so desks.

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.
