5 Alternative Uses for a Desk
Yesterday we blogged 5 pieces that double as a desk. Today we’re inverting that idea and looking at 5 alternative uses for a desk. Although some of these might seem obvious (a desk can usually double as a table and vice-versa), we love looking at ways that furniture can be flexible in a space…where to place things, how to make the most of the furniture you already own, and how to think beyond something’s traditional use…
Use it as a vanity, or keep it in the bedroom as a place to stash odds and ends. Image: Silhouette Desk from Brocade Home, $699.
Move it into a dining room and use it as a sideboard or buffet substitute. Image: Polka Dots Wallpaper from Ferm Living.
Switch out the computer for a television and use it as a media console. Image: Go Cart Desk from CB2 ($149)
Use it in an entryway, either to delineate the space (as shown in the photo above from Ferm Living), or push it up against a wall and use any storage compartments to sort mail or hold gloves and scarves.
