Sleek Simplicity: Here’s my desk when I’m working at home. Submitted by Andrew. Originally posted 4th May, 2010.  Part of the Vault series, a collection of some of the best posts from the previous iteration of Simple Desks.

∞ Wooden Warmth: This is a warm, woody desk, whose former job was to support a typewriter or a very tired teacher, has been revived as a workstation for a computer which suits its dropped center perfectly for an ergonomic place for a keyboard. The pull-out shelves on each side would be perfect for papers and a cup of coffee. Very nostalgic. That chair is beautiful, too.  Via Well Appointed Desk.

∞ Cubespace: A lot of colours, suggesting a freedom in the design that should not be only space but also visual, almost sensory. Via Designmodo.

Workspace

∞ Plus One: Love those lights.  Via Not My Beautiful Home.

∞ Spacious Simplicity: Extensive access to the outdoors is always a lovely addition to any workspace. The outside environment is such an inspiring backdrop that I strongly believe that it’s not only important, but essential; it serves to remind us of the wider possibilities of our work, and thus motivate us toward greater and more ambitious things. This workspace provides a nice platform from which these can be cultivated. It allows observation, but prevents distraction: the best of both worlds. 

Colour Me Envious: Originally posted 9th September, 2010: “This is my workspace in the kitchen’s breakfast nook area.” I don’t normally comment on the desks I post, but everything about this space is perfect. Colour me envious. Submitted by Gurnam Bedi. Part of the Vault series, a collection of some of the best posts from the previous iteration of Simple Desks.

∞ Great Ideas Accepted: A very, very interesting workspace. The chair is wonderful, as is the desk.  Via Mac Pix.

Seafront: Originally posted 11th August, 2010.  Part of the Vault series, a collection of some of the best posts from the previous iteration of Simple Desks.

Submission from Jackie Saik: Needed a desk I could hide and/or move into another room when people came over. Found this one at Ikea.  Nice submission. Understated and yet very cool. Submit your own desk, or one you found on the web, here.

∞ Modernised Cottage: This is great, and it’s only one part of a very cool cottage update. Hit the link above to see some of the other images from this project. Via Dear Inspiration.

∞ Proof of Concept: This represents a lot of the things I aspire to in relation to my own workspace. Stylish, minimalist and above all, functional. Many of the desks I post are often dominated by iPhones, iPads and Macs - it’s refreshing to see one without them. Sometimes we become distracted by, and obsess over, these mostly meaningless details, convincing ourselves that they will somehow provide us with the willpower we crave. The best way to achieve is to find focus; allow your actual work to take precedence over the means with which you complete it. Via Dear Inspiration.

Submission from Daniil: My desk in new office. Nicely done. Submit your own desk, or one you found on the web, here.

∞ Cubespace: A lot of colours, suggesting a freedom in the design that should not be only space but also visual, almost sensory. Via Designmodo.

∞ Futureproof: One day. Via Archiphile.

∞ Creatively Cluttered: Via Home Designing.

∞ Deja, Deja, Deja Vu: Very nice. Once again, those chairs are back. I’ve changed my opinion on them though, thanks to some information kindly sent in by needle: It’s the Eames shell chair. They are everywhere. If you don’t know much about Charles and Ray Eames, you should so google and see if you can’t catch a wonderful recent documentary about them — industrial designers, architects, painters, creatives, and a really interesting couple as well. Their motto was “the best, for the most, for the least.” So I think they would be happy that their iconic designs have remained so popular. Via Where is the Cool?.

∞ White Versus Paint: Stunning room/desk, but if somebody knocks those paints there’s going to trouble. Via Home Designing.

∞ Cool & Quirky: Contemporary minimalist abstract painter Dee Adams reveals her Oakland loft. With it’s vast rectangular floor plan, one can see the influence of simple lines and the open spaces in her paintings. Nevertheless the loft shows much warmth with it’s quirky lunchbox collection and it’s penchant for color everywhere. It is easy to see her inspiration. Via Modernica.

∞ A Workspace with Gravitas: There’s something excellent about that backdrop/poster. Via Amy Philly.

∞ Deja Vu: Lovely image, lovely interior. I’m getting a little tired of seeing that chair design, though. It’s everywhere!  Via Home Designing.

∞ Whitewash: The greenery makes this. Via Home Designing.

∞ A Wonderful Attic: Almost, almost, perfect. Via The Black Workshop.

∞ Rooted in Nature: A nice, understated, natural workspace.

Submission from Martin Castro: Loving my new MacBook Air Submit your own desk, or one you found on the web, here.

∞ Those High Heels: So many wonderful elements to this photo. Via vitazko.

∞ Supreme Mac Envy: Beautifully balanced. Via Mac Desks.

∞ It’s alive: I’m not sure what to say about the chair. It’s either a horrific monstrosity or a wonderful luxury. I guess I’ll never really know. Via Minimal Desks.

Submission from Zopsesen: Really nice - and it’s excellent to see a beautiful desk with a Dell, rather than a Mac for a change. I’d love to see more examples if anyone has any. Submit your own desk, or one you found on the web, here.

∞ A Wealth of Knowledge: Via Design Traveller.

∞ Stripes and Stripes: The contents of my desk are a combination of vintage finds and modern everyday technology. The desk itself was chosen two apartments ago (from Pottery Barn, gasp) because of its modular set up (it can be changed into a set of file cabinets easily) in case I move into a space that won’t accommodate it as is. That said, it’s about time to move on a find a new desk, I just haven’t been able to find the right one. Until then, I’m pretty comfortable with what I have and think it works well in my space. You be the judge.

∞ Ben Brooks’s Workspace: Reserved but beautiful.  Via Mac Pix.

∞ Before and After: Now, finally with a Eames chair! The perfect mix of beauty and comfort. Via Mac Pix.

Shameless Exhibitionist: Originally posted 23rd April, 2010.  Part of the Vault series, a collection of some of the best posts from the previous iteration of Simple Desks.

∞ Upstairs Downstairs: My grandfather’s partner desk from the 1930s. Each drawer is filled with old family photos, leases, letters, contracts, deeds, stock certificates and items from as far back as the 1850s. Eyeglasses, ballet shoes, letter sweaters, bibles, coins, ribbons of political buttons, old letterhead, ledgers, lighters and a multitude of other family “treasures.” I love the stairway to our loft — I guess there were not many building codes in the 1920s. Via Design Sponge.

∞ Parliament Headquarters: An all round amazing office space - Parliament has a wonderful studio. Check out some other lovely images of the rest of their work area here. Via FFFFound!.

∞ Wall Collage: Via Not My Beautiful Home.

∞ Note to Self: Love all the sticky notes perfectly aligned - says a lot about the owner of this desk.
