In this master bedroom, a 19th-century French kitchen table becomes a desk by adding a midcentury club chair. The oversized floor lamp and custom daybed create an inviting space, while the natural wool area rug warms the room.
Bright colors like orange and lime add energy and enliven this home office from designer Lori Dennis. A reclaimed desk from the '50s was painted in a car body shop to make it like new while a multicolored abstract painting with bold graphics creates a strong visual focal point.
A sleek wood desk faces two floor-to-ceiling windows and looks out to spectacular french quarter views in this contemporary New Orleans living room. A vintage inspired desk chair adds some charm fitting for this Victorian home filled with history.
A mix of vintage chairs create a charming seating area against the live-edge work station that creates a desk for the bunk room. Using mismatched chairs adds a carefree and effortless feel to the room’s design.
Vintage finds are artfully displayed in every room in this home. By the desk, a colorful handmade jacket adds a splash of bright color that accentuates the reds found in the various books, and the yellow of the ottoman. Even the wood tone of the floor is tied into this colorful piece.
A watercolor canvas gives soft decoration to the pale blue wall color. Vintage light fixtures frame the painting adding a warm glow to the cool toned design. A wood table is set up as the working desk with space for a laptop, books and personal decorative touches. A white chair is upholstered at the seat with a soft floral fabric while the back opening displays a gray plaid pattern.
The polka-dotted bedding and matching curtains draw the eye up, opening the middle of the room. A plaid dust ruffle and brown floral carpet complement the white vintage desk for a harmonious blend of shabby chic style.
For unique character, the designer included vintage details like the globes above the desk and the brass animals. Like the window seat, this built-in desk is a smart choice for a smaller space, fitting handily into the sloped ceiling alcove.
