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.
With companies across the globe thinking about hybrid work culture where employees only come to office once or twice a week, the home office is bound to become more of a must-have now even in coming years. And every functional home office needs a desk that is just perfect for it. Not all of us can afford to spare an additional room or expansive space for hoe work area and that is where the minimal floating desk comes in mighty handy. Here is a trio of trendy floating desks with a minimal, modern design and woodsy charm that win you over instantly –

The Float Wall Desk, designed by Dario Antonioni, is all that and a whole lot more with its delightful design that turns even the tiniest of spaces into an efficient and minimal work area.

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.
