22 Jun Installations: Home Office Desks
Working from home is the new normal. Here are some Richmond area home offices and the variety of desks I specified.
This 12×12 upstairs landing had so many and so few possibilities at the same time. It felt remarkably spacious being adjacent to a tower-like staircase, but needed some strategy to fit the right office elements. I worked with Georgia Kukoski of The Closet Factory to create a his-and-hers home office with a partner desk and lots of storage. The “bulletin board” is tac wall in grey.
I love this home office I did for a small business owner. The beautiful desk is motorized for sitting or standing while you work.
Look how fluidly it moves:
And here is a detail view:
This parlor was loaded with toys the first time I saw it. My plan was to make it a room to grow into. A fort, a slide and a reading hideout are perfect for boys ages 2 and 5. Give it a few years and we will remove slide and steps to be left with two built-in desks and a project table in the middle.
This is from the 2008 Richmond Symphony League Designer House. A simple writing desk in the corner with a very feminine chair and a mirrored wall is all you need. This could actually double as a vanity table!
Drop Zone Desk
This is from the 2012 Richmond Symphony League Designer House. The tiny room was a pass-through for the basement steps, a garden door, the dining room and the kitchen. A multi-purpose drop zone desk provided a sunny place to focus on the work at hand.
Concealed Teen Desk
These desks were built into a closet for two teen girls. There are laptop drawers and tac board walls, but the doors can be shut for a clean and clutter-free look.
My Home Office
As many of you know, my husband and I live in a one-bedroom apartment. Our shared office is the dining room table. I came up with a way to officially close for the day.
