Ahh, the feeling of working in stunning surroundings. We’d argue loving your office space is far from a trivial concern. Instead, for anyone who’s visually inclined, it’s a lovely — and completely practical — way to help get the creative juices flowing. Increased productivity by way of beauty? The answer is a resounding “yes”, as far as we’re concerned! So, here we present four workspace trends we’re seriously considering incorporating into our own office. Inspiring desk space, inspired mind. We’re feeling more focused just looking at them.
1. The Two-Top
Clever space-saving solution — if you need workspace enough for two but are low on square footage, forgo the double desk situation and instead invest in a long table with space for two chairs. Instant desk for deux. It’s convenient, of course, but there’s also something pleasingly symmetrical about it. And, always fun to have an office buddy.

2. Sheepskin as Cushion
Remember when we said we’re swooning cozy sheepskins? We’re definitely still feeling them — and such a smart, simple idea to use them in the office. When effortlessly strewn across the chair, they’re a cool and super-comfy alternative seat cushions. Plus, should you ever tire of them, there are a million other places you could put them at home.

3. The Sparse Space
There’s minimalism and then there’s minimalism. The light, airy, pared-down desk areas are striking a serious chord with us. We’re swooning Scandi-inspired pale floors throughout the home, but we especially love the look in the office. It’s calming, ultra-restrained and free from distractions — everything we’d need to clear our mind and get down to business.

4. The Un-Desk
Who says you have to spring for a traditional desk in the office? We’re all for rule-breaking, especially when conventions are as arbitrary as this. Instead of limiting themselves to desks and desks only, we’re starting to see savvy design-minded folks expanding their surface horizons. If the height is right, a console or side table make great smaller desks and dinner tables are a fantastic alternative to larger desks or conference tables.
