Why choose shabby chic desks?

Creating an attractive and productive workspace isn’t always easy. Desks need to be the right size, shape and style to help you truly focus. Depending on whether you work straight from a laptop or push paper around each day, your desk requirements may vary. One thing we can say, however, is that a shabby chic desk has the power to make your work area a more welcoming and inviting one. Whether it’s the worn patterns on the desktop or tactile metal knobs on the drawers, there is something comforting about sitting at a piece of furniture that has been used well for many years.

A vintage drapers table can easily feel at home in any room. Even in the modern contemporary home environment a designated office space with a shabby chic desk can work well. In fact, if your room as various different functions (perhaps as a kids playroom after hours), the addition of a desk that is different in style from the other parts of the space can help you to ensure that when you enter the work area you truly are ready to be productive.

Shabby Chic Home Office Desk Ideas

Placing a well-chosen shabby chic desk in the bedroom can bring a fresh inviting feel and only become the perfect accompaniment to the comfiest room in the home. The inclusion of an Ercol console desk with its slender design and warm tones would be a welcome addition to any bedside; even in the most modern of homes the uniqueness and charm of such well renowned and well-established pieces will only add to any environment. Paired with a lamp it will make any corner stand out and beautify any space that can feel empty.

Baroque French Style Desk

Alternatively, why not consider an ageless baroque French style desk – the perfect item of furniture for adding elegance and sophistication, as well as functionality. Accompanied with a bucket chair or worn leather swivel chair it can add another place of relaxation and calmness.

Vintage Industrial Desks

Additionally, have you thought about the use of a desk to make a bold statement? A tall dark vintage industrial desk mixed with a large rustic metal wall clock and pale flowers can give a uniquely mismatched and raw feel; bringing a truly inviting look to any open plan farmhouse kitchen or dining area.
