Happy Monday Folks, we are back to our regularly scheduled design content after a big recap of everything that happened at Round Top last week and we have some very fun content coming up for you this week including some updates at my house, some reveals, and today we are starting it off with another edition of Power Couples. We’ve had multiple requests for desk and chair combos and although we can’t guarantee that they will make your work week easier or more productive (hello Monday) we can promise that they will make it a lot more pretty.
So whether you are looking for a party space like my friend Jen’s office from , or something more eclectic and collected like office that we shot for the book, we have pulled together some of our very favorite combos in every style and price range. With each of these combos we had a few rules. 1) the desk had to be at least 12″ deep so that you could work at it with a laptop (although most are deeper), 2) the chair had to either swivel or roll – or both, 3) the desk had to have some form of storage so that it wasn’t just a table. Although we did make an exception to that rule on two of the combos below as they were just too pretty not to include.
1. & | 2. & | 3. & | 4. & | 5. & | 6. & | 7. & | 8. & | 9. & | 10. & | 11. & | 12. & | 13. & | 14. & | 15. & | 16. & | 17. & | 18. &
I am loving #2 if you are looking for a glam/midcentury look, although I will caution you with white chairs as we have something very similar in our studio, our jeans have started to turn them blue a bit. Nothing a quick cleaning can’t fix but something to be aware of. If you are trying to be budget friendly then #17’s parson inspired desk is a steal at $63, and don’t worry we have 16 more below for you, we just split it into two roundups to make navigating back and forth between pictures and links a little more simple.
1. & | 2. & | 3. & | 4. & | 5. & | 6. & | 7. & | 8. & | 9. & | 10. & | 11. & | 12. & | 13. & | 14. & | 15. & | 16. &
If traditional is your vibe then try out #6 or #16, if your looking for something for a small space try out #13, and if you are trying to keep your pocketbook happy then #8 is a simple and modern option.
So what are your favorites? Have you tried any of these out before or is there anything we should know about any of the pieces we pulled together? Let us know below and let us know what you want to see next.
