Pick a style

Start with the design that speaks to your spirit (we'll save the business part for later!). Each of our home office collections is crafted by hand in our North American workshops.

Decide on a Desk

Your home office desk is the heart of your office. Choosing the right size and functionality for your needs is your first order of business.

freestanding desk

Place this desk almost anywhere in your space, including along the wall or at the center of your room. Choose an open base for legroom or a pedestal desk with drawers for storage. Great for larger spaces.

peninsula desk

Extends into your room from a wall or storage system
at a 90° angle and is an excellent option for adding work and meeting space.

bridge desk

Provides extra workspace when paired with our peninsula desk. Alone, it’s a space-saving desk for smaller rooms. As its name implies, it’s placed as a “bridge” between two structures, like cabinets.

corner desk

Maximizes corner space and frees up the center of your room for additional home office furniture. It’s also a perfect fit for youth bedrooms as a homework or craft area.
