5 Hideaway Desks from Chain Stores
Hideaway desks can’t be beat when it comes to small spaces, and chain stores are recognizing this demand. The inclusion of computer enhancements makes many of these slim packages even more appealing, with cable management, data ports and USB hubs for your clutter free computing convenience.
Incognito Ebony Compact Office by Crate and Barrel ($999)
This dark ash cabinet is my favorite of the bunch, with trunk styling and plenty of hidden compartments. Cord management, printer shelf and file drawer keep things organized and from the exterior, you’d never know this is a home office.
Mayfair Steamer Secretary Trunk in Vintage Cigar Leather by Restoration Hardware ($2995)
Unique is an understatement: This huge leather steamer trunk houses a full desktop computer, multiple file boxes, all set on lockable casters. Accented with over 3,000 hand-hammered brass nailheads, every detail is attended to. Complete with pull-down desktop, cubbies, wire management and bookshelves.
Graham Secretary Desk with Smart Technology by Pottery Barn ($799.00)
Available in both white and mahogany stain, this secretary desk has the best data ports of the bunch with two electrical receptacles, a telephone jack, a data jack and two USB ports. Fold-down front keeps your clutter hidden from view.
Both of World Market’s petite desks are more modest in size and price, both offering hidden desks within a cabinet. Neither include the computer clutter saving additions from the others above but for the price, you could always grab some Ikea cord management and DIY.
