Home Office Ideas-Desks 101

Updated: Feb 4, 2019

If you have the extra room in your home to create an amazing home office, I guarantee it will get your creative juices flowing! There are some great options for desks right here in and around Morris County!

How many of you wish you had a hip, trendy office that you loved spending time in? I do a lot of work from home and decided to redo my entire home office recently to make it more comfy, fun and a place in my home I absolutely love to be. I find it makes me more productive to work out of a space that inspires me and that I ultimately enjoy working from.

I ended up using an old wood top desk with metal legs that can easily be used as a dining table, but I loved the idea of using it as my desk. It’s similar to this beauty from Restoration Hardware in Short Hills. This one from their Flatiron Collection sells for $795.

The whole designing and decorating process inspired me to share some of my favorite desk designs I found along the way right here in and around Morris.

Did you know Target has an enormous inventory of furniture that you never see in the stores, but can easily find online? I saw so many great pieces, and the prices are totally affordable! Here’s one of my favorites from the online store. Target online or in store in East Hanover has the Kenton Writing Desk: Comes in 12 different colors!


When I think of Wal Mart I admit furniture never came to mind. So I did some research and who knew you could find some really great pieces of furniture here. How nice is this rustic wood and metal leg desk?

Wal-Mart Cedar Knolls or online you can buy the Coaster Company Antique Nutmeg 4-Drawer Writing Desk $268

No matter what your style, you can pretty much find something for everyone at Macy’s. I love the unique look of this Coby Desk currently on Sale for $499 at Macy’s Furniture in Fairfield.

Another local favorite for unique furniture pieces is World Market off of Rte 10 In Livingston. I found this cute, simple and elegant piece on sale for only $175.

Some spaces call for larger pieces and depending on what your personal needs are you may need or want to invest in a more substantial piece. Like this gorgeous, and pricey beauty from my personal fav Jonathan Adler in Short Hills.

For $3950 the Turner Partner desk can be yours.

If space is a real concern you can always go the route of the Pottery Barn Ludlow Trunk Secretary Desk…it’s so unique and sure to be a conversation starter. I love how it looks open or closed! Pictured here is when it's closed!

Pottery Barn in Short Hills or online

Retails for $1898

There’s a great new store that just opened in Morris Plains called Baby & Kidz furniture. If you’re looking for some cute ideas for your child or tweens room, I found this perfect desk for any little girls room.

Retails for $726

I’m a huge fan of everything Anthropologie. From clothing, to décor pieces and their eclectic and unique furniture, I always fall in love! So this was the first place I looked when thinking of doing my own office. I stumbled across this gem.

The Odetta Desk: comes in 4 different shades retails for $1698

If you’re looking for something totally unique, a bit whimsical and fun too, check this one out from Suburban Furniture in Succasunna. I love this one!!


The Danny Writing desk from Rayomour and Flannigan has an awesome rustic vibe but is also totally functional. There are several locations around: East Hanover Outlet store, Rockaway, Fairfield. Desk retails for $569

Last but not least, did you know you can find some really reasonably priced pieces at your local Home Depot? Most locations don’t carry a lot of furniture in stores. If you love the Restoration Hardware look but don't feel like spending RH $$$ then look at this knock off for half the price. And It doesn’t look cheap up close and personal either!
