My husband and I have been looking for an unobtrusive desk to create a dedicated workspace for him in our small sitting room. Multi-tasking rooms such as ours call for something that makes smart use of limited space. After the jump, find 10 space-saving options in a range of prices. Depending on your style, room, and budget, there are many ways you can make an added-in workspace work. For a minimal and modern look, consider something clear and streamlined, such as this acrylic console (Image 2). If you can go wider or taller than you can deep, consider a wall-mounted shelf desk (Images 1, 6, and 10). To truly multitask, consider a piece than can double as a side or entry table or nightstand.
