7 nontraditional desks that mean business
While a large, traditional desk may work in some home offices, it might not be what you had in mind for your multipurpose workspace. Especially as computers and tech gadgets have gotten smaller, less is becoming more.
We asked four bloggers what their favorite home office desk alternatives are and got some great ideas. Here are 7 nontraditional desk options.

It’s perfect for a small space. It can easily double as a desk area to get work done right behind your couch, so it’s unsuspecting and multifunctional. Bonus: You can watch TV while you work. — Lana Katsaros of Making a House a Home 

6     Cannery Bridge Work Table

If you typically stand more than you sit in your office, a worktable is a great option. It is taller than a traditional desk, approximately counter-height, and you can easily fit a stool underneath. — Liz Fourez of Love Grows Wild 

7     Edge Water Lift-top Coffee Table

Edge Water Lift Top Coffee Table nontraditional desk

A coffee table with a desk built in! How cool is that? Sit on your comfy couch, turn on a show in the background, and crank away at that project you’ve been meaning to start on. — Sauder’s pick
