    1. A hairpin writing desk so lovely it's sure to sell out fast. So don't put a (hair) pin in it! You're gonna want to grab this before it's gone!

    Staples

    Get it from Staples for $64.99.

    2. A minimalist writing table — an inexpensive option that'll provide the lift you need if working from your sofa has done a number on your back. Remember posture? I do not.

    Wayfair

    Promising review: "I needed a desk quick with everyone home and in quarantine. This was priced well, easy to assemble, and just what we needed" —Bob

    Get it from Wayfair for $142.99 (available in two colors).

    3. An elegant walnut desk for giving your home office a sophisticated style that'd make your boss say, "This here is the desk of a leader. Good work, Johnson!" Which would mean a lot, even if your name isn't Johnson.

    Hayneedle

    Promising review: "My friend assembled this desk for me in a couple of hours. The instructions were clear and the delivery was speedy. This is a nice, quality piece of furniture." —Bottom Line

    Get it from Hayneedle for $299.99.

    4. A vanity/desk hybrid that's gonna turn your bedroom into a workspace so nice you may end up wondering why offices even exist.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "The design of this piece is wonderful and so practical. It's a beautiful, modern vanity with storage. It's also the perfect writing or computer desk. It's fantastic for doing hair and makeup to homework and crafts. I'm very happy with this purchase." —Lori Ann

    Get it from Amazon for $219.99.

    5. A side table laptop tray that might be the best solution in small spaces. Use this as a side table during the day and simply slide it over when you're tired of having your laptop in your, well, lap.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This was easy to assemble. It took me less than 10 minutes to put up. It's easy to move around because it is not too heavy yet very sturdy. I move this practically all day. Sometimes we use it as a table to eat in front of the TV but most of the time it's just used as a side table and a ‘catch all’ space. I have carpet flooring and it glides with no problem. The dark wood finish matches my gray modern and minimalist living room. We’re a young couple and this suites our taste!" —Dandamilmar

    Get it from Amazon for $52.99.

    6. A rattan desk that'll add a warm, natural tone to any room, making it a great pick if you don't have an entire room to dedicate to an office and need a desk that's gonna complement your living space.

    Urban Outfitters

    Plus, rattan is finally back and I plan on embracing it with a vengeance. Rattan everything ALL THE TIME.

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $399.

    7. A wall-mounted shelf desk sure to be a brilliant and beautiful way to work from home without making it look like you live to work. On top of that, it's just irresponsibly gorgeous.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I had this blank corner in my living room and I just knew this ladder desk would be a gorgeous addition to the area. I don't have an extra room for an office or even the kind of space in our small home to designate to a bulky desk. It was very easy to assemble, it took maybe 25 minutes to put together. I love having my own spot to get my work done on my MacBook. Plus this spot is perfect to work on any crafts/DIYs. I added a pouf seat instead of a chair just to save even more space since it easily slides underneath the desk. Anyway, I'm so stoked about this purchase! I highly recommend it." —

    Get it from Amazon for $134.99.

    8. A metal tubing desk that's good-lookin', lightweight, practical, and here to prove that making the perfect office at home isn't just a ~pipe~ dream.

The desk is the perfect size — it's not too big but it's large enough to hold a iMac, keyboard, and laptop with some extra space. Putting it together was so simple. It took 30 minutes tops. I had no issues whatsoever. This is a great bang for you buck." —Miranda

I just had a baby so having the ability to have the table lift helps hold items I need for her. The sliding end is next to my rocking chair so I am able to slide the table down over to put her bottle on the table as I’m rocking. It is also great for storage! I’ve been searching for the perfect table for at least three years and this is it!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $135.99.
