Most of us have no say in the running, organization and design of our offices. However, if you work from home every now and then, hopefully you have a hand in how to decorate your office away from the office. Whether you’re trying to write the next great American novel or just creating a working workspace, a new desk is a great way to increase household productivity. If increased productivity is high on your New Year’s resolutions list, check out some of the desks our in-house designers are loving right now.

This desk is handcrafted from recycled materials and features an oxidized ambrosia maple surface and a blackened steel base. This makes it a nice addition to any chic, urban home office.

JMF inspired oak and leather desk by Atelier Violett
Just because you work doesn’t mean you can’t have a luxurious piece of furniture to get your job done. The desktop of this JMF-inspired oak and leather desk by Atelier Violett is made from a single piece of tanned leather for an exquisite work surface.

Hellman Chang’s Xie desk
Home offices are often converted reserve rooms that cannot accommodate large pieces of furniture. If you are looking for a sleek, chic, and inconspicuous desk, consider the Hellman Chang Xie desk. It’s a smaller option that doesn’t detract from the style in any way.
