This white wrap-around desk offers plenty of space to do homework or work on art projects in colorful, contemporary girl's room. A soft purple desk chair is a stylish work seat that complements the graphic, royal purple and white rug.
Glossy woods fill this masculine home office in the Boston brownstone. An Ikat area rug grounds the seating area in front of the wood and stone fireplace. Built-in cabinets provide tons of storage and wrap around the room into the bay window. A sleek desk has views of Boston beyond.
In loft layouts, the distinctions between different “rooms” must often come from a shift in materials, not from physical walls. Here, architect Gary Chase of Vita Design Group used this technique to great effect to create an office within a free-flowing layout. “Used in a few moments around the home, this walnut feature material creates the backdrop for this modern desk area between kitchen and family Room. As it wraps from the wall up onto the ceiling the material serves to frame out and define the space for the desk,” he says.
