Although cubicle seems like a dirty little office word, they can have a rightful place in a home setting. For the last few years, we've lived in an open loft and out computer gear has been open on 4 sides and not against a wall. Though we made things aesthetically appealing, utilizing a low-walled cubicle such as these would have made things easier. See what big box retailer they hail from after the jump.
Although these cubes are probably on the high side when it comes to price, for someone looking to make a solid investment for an open space (or business) they aren't horrible in the long run. That doesn't mean we really think a $900 desk is a rational purchase (we built ours for $50), but over time, sometimes paying for design that serves a specific purpose isn't a bad thing.
If they're still too rich for your blood, check out their clean lines and see what you can recreate for a more pocketbook-friendly price. Each Cube-In-A-Box system below can be found at Costco and we're guessing that if you're a member, there might be a price break, as there is with most paid membership retailers.
