Perki's Cozy Little Tech Nook Looks Great to Work On

Not everyone enjoys working from extremely large desks. Large desks are great, but they are prone to attract all sorts of clutter. Perki's cozy little tech nook shows us that you don't need a large desk to work. We really like this setup. It's simple and looks good.

Perki is actually David Perkins, and he's a 22-year old web, icon, and graphic designer from Wigan, in the UK. His most recent addition to his home setup is the MacBook Pro. He can control the iMac with the MacBook's keyboard and trackpad, thanks to a little software. That's an interesting solution to keep only one keyboard on his diminutive desk: the one on his laptop.

Other than the MacBook Pro and the iMac, David has got an Acer Aspire One A150 netbook. David enjoys fixed gear bikes and he's got a mean little espresso corner, of which we're kind of envious. He's got a Delonghi espresso machine, a grinder, and all that's needed to brew some great coffee.

His desk has some LED light strips to give off this great ambient glow, making everything pop. Some low shelving on the left of his desk keeps everything accessible easily. Thanks to the fact that he uses the keyboard and trackpad of his MacBook to control his iMac, there are almost no visible wires, which makes the whole area look clean and effective.

All in all, it's a nice setup for those who don't have much space to spare. It's small, but you don't feel cramped if you use it day in and day out.
