Minimal Floating Desks Perfect for the Small Modern Home Office

There was a time not too long ago when people working from home were a miniscule minority even in fields where most of the tasks can be accomplished from the comfort of a desk almost anywhere. Then came a raging global pandemic that turned work culture upside down with zoom meetings, work from home and connecting remotely becoming the norm. Today, many of us are still working from home and in most countries across the globe, life is barely back up to normal pace. The first and most obvious hurdle that many faced when they suddenly had to work from home is a comfortable and productive home office / workspace.

ANNIK by Michael Hilgers

Created for German furniture giant OTTO by Michael Hilgers, ANNIK is our personal favorite on the list just because of its uncomplicated design and how well it fits into any corner of your home. Not just that, but the triangular shape of this floating desk adds geometric contrast to rooms filled with lots of rectangles and squares. Apart from the charming and functional simplicity, you also get an additional smaller shelf at the top that can be used as storage space or as a display. Of course, you can just attach it to the wall at a higher level to use it as a standing desk.
