The varied styles of home offices, the many shades and hues that give them a more relaxing and productive ambiance and of course those gorgeous decorative pieces and lighting fixtures that set the right mood – we are on the constant lookout for ways to improve the home workspace. But at the heart of it all is the work desk that pretty much defines the style of the room and is definitely the most important piece of the efficient office space design. And as the holiday shopping frenzy starts to reach its peak, we take a little peek at 5 fabulous desks that you could gift yourself to make your work-life a whole lot easier.
The Glitz & Glamour of Channing
Kickstarting our list is the brilliant Channing Desk from Jonathan Adler, and it is a masterpiece that combines elegance, chic style and a hint of Hollywood regency to absolute perfection. The name of the desk is borrowed from Margo Channing, Bette Davis’s character in All About Eve, and its crisscrossed polished legs, exquisite silhouette and gorgeous Lucite knobs definitely bring home the glitter of Hollywood in a grand fashion. Available in four different lacquered finishes, this desk promises to be the showstopper of any room it adorns!
