With the majority of the country now working from home for the foreseeable future, as a small business we’ve been receiving lots of enquiries about our desks and home storage this week. So we thought we would pull together a little guide to creating the ultimate creative workspace at home, for all the family...
Firstly desks, or even kitchen tables - some of the best businesses were started from a kitchen table! Having a workspace area is vital. It gives you somewhere to focus, get creative and generally create a space that's yours. We have two desks available. Our industrial reclaimed desk which is a real investment piece. Handcrafted from reclaimed wood it has a distressed paint effect finish and features a sturdy industrial steel frame, two side drawers and a lift-able lid top for additional storage - which is ideal for tidying away paperwork and stationery, or keeping a laptop safe. Then there's our oriental oyster grey console table which has a more simple, contemporary design and comes with two large drawers and attractive antiqued white copper metal drop handles. For those looking for an all-in-one option then why not opt for our solid wood Nordic grey extending dining table, which seats eight people when fully extended - so plenty of space for the whole family to work, study and eat at!
Storage, is there ever such a thing as too much storage! Whether it's for storing work files, stationary, books or even the kid's toys, we have a range of storage ideas from sideboards to bookshelves. A few of our favourites, and ideal for a home workspace, are our Nordic grey low bookshelf, Nordic grey large sideboard and oriental oyster grey medium cabinet.
Accessories and stationary. This is where you can get really creative and have some fun! From wall planners and hangings to stationary, rugs and planters. Some of our top recommendations would be our industrial hanging frame, ceramic face planters (available in small or large), chalkboard weekly planner, natural shaggy Moroccan Berber rug, seagrass storage baskets, monestera wooden peg board and mesh noticeboard.
And lastly, lighting. We're big fans of lighting here in the Den. It makes such a dramatic difference to a space, in terms of the light it casts, as well as the style of the light itself and can really tie a scheme together. It's also a must in terms of creating good visibility and light for a workspace. We have a whole array of handcrafted lighting available, from retro inspired factory lights and wire cage pendants, to wall sconces and table lamps. To really create a personalised space, with a little industrial urban edge, we love our vintage industrial cage gunmetal bulkhead wall light by Industville, which has a vintage nautical design and features a glass inner casing - it's also available in a lovely warm copper. For overhead lighting we've chosen our industrial vintage old factory dark pewter & copper pendant light by Industville, which is inspired by vintage factory lights and has slotted detailing around the top - it's also available in copper and dark pewter. In terms of desk lamps we have our rose gold globe desk lamp which is perfect for adding a little art deco glamour, or our stylish Scandinavian glass jar table lamp which features a distressed grey wooden base.
