Now that 2021 has arrived, you can breathe a (small) sigh of relief. To say the least, 2020 wasn’t your average year, and that might have influenced your New Year’s resolutions for 2021. With many people still working from home, there’s a good chance you vowed to upgrade your work-from-home setup in the new year. That starts with having the right desk. For those of us who aren’t blessed with a home office—and tend to use one room as an entertainment center/office/home gym—a compact desk is key. And judging by the more than 9,000 5-star reviews on Amazon and $66 price tag, the CubiCubi writing desk might be the ultimate affordable option. 

Measuring just 32″ W x 19.7″ D x 28″ H, the compact desk is easy to assemble and can be used practically anywhere, whether you’re placing it against a wall in your living area or tucking it in the corner of your bedroom. The industrial-style metal frame is impressively sturdy, and the adjustable leg pads deliver even more stability, so you can pack on heavy books without worry. And because the desk comes in six colors—including black, white, and a range of woods—it will work with practically any decor scheme.

“So much better than the end of the dining room table or the folding table we used for Friendsgiving gatherings!” noted one reviewer of the best-selling desk. “It looks nice, goes with the decor of our spare bedroom, very stable, easy to clean (just wipe off). The top has a nice wood look even though it’s laminate. For the price, it is an excellent option.”

Besides helping you be more productive, the desk will also help you stay organized. It includes a hanging storage bag to keep everything neat and tidy, as well as an iron hook for holding things like headphones. Since those are off to the side, it leaves plenty of room on top for working. “It’s the perfect size and is so convenient to put my work laptop, home laptop, separate monitor, keyboard, mouse, some notebooks, pens, markers, coffee (essential), and still have surface room to maneuver and work on,” gushed a reviewer.

But perhaps the biggest bonus is that this stylish WFH solution gives you a lot of bang for your buck. “Its industrial vintage surface looks very high-end quality and it surprisingly matches with my wood floor,” said a reviewer. “I am a part time interior designer, so usually I am very picky about furniture but this one, OMG. Still, I couldn’t believe $69 can get such good design with so many details and good quality. Other comparable good looking study desks are at least $150+.”
