Certain tastes are able to perfectly bisect the population. Your preference for a clean, minimal desk over one cluttered with inspiration says just as much about your personality as your preference for grape jelly over strawberry jam. So tell us: Do you like simply minimal workspaces or decorated desks full of inspiration?

Do you prefer the sleek lines of a desk designed with minimalism in mind, or the colorful liveliness of a desk cluttered with inspirational pieces?

We think that your choice to go for one over the other has a lot to do with your personality. Do you fit these workspace profiles? Or do you break out of the mold? Tell us in the comments!
