Shabby Chic Desks

As remote working has grown in popularity, many of us now find ourselves needing to make space for a work desk in our homes. To combine homely cosiness with functional productivity, a shabby chic desk could be the answer.

A rustic school desk from the 1940s can ooze nostalgia and be repurposed to create a wonderfully inspiring workstation for your study or home office. Bleached wood or a distressed chalk paint look can rejuvenate an old desk and give it a new lease of life. Passionate about sustainability, our handpicked sellers understand the importance of shunning fast furniture for something more unique and special.

If you want to make your home office cool and stylish yet perfectly functional, why not browse the extensive range of shabby chic desks listed right here at Vinterior today?

Why choose a shabby chic desk?

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. 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.
