Corner Desk with Built-In Storage

Corner built-in desks are an ingenious use of space, especially in awkwardly shaped rooms or small areas.

Floating Built-In Desk

For a modern and minimalist look, consider a floating built-in desk. This desk appears to ‘float’ against the wall with no visible supports, giving your office a clean, contemporary feel. This can be great for households that rely on their Roomba to pick up after life’s daily messes, without the confined space below your Roomba will continue on it’s path!
