What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Etsomnia™ 355: Desk Set


Etsom·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. The surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.) 3. An excuse for me to be an obnoxious, snarky New Yorker once in a while.

With so many of the workforce working from home, home office furniture has become extra important. Since we’ve all got some kind of home office space now, it’s important that there be both function and style. There are some good options for all budgets.

By the way, though it’s now “unavailable,” this is the desk that really sent me down this rabbit hole.

For more Etsy fun, check out all my Etsomnia™ posts!

What an ingenious solution for when you don’t have room for a desk (or want a standing desk that looks more like a piece of decorative furniture than something from Staples). By Solutions4lifeUA
Though it makes my back hurt just looking at her, this is another good option if you don’t have space for a desk (and are young enough not to care about the accompanying aches). By ChezLiseDesigns
I’m always a fan of vintage metal tank desks, and this beauty can be coated in any color you want! By SteelSantos

Tables like this make me wish I’d gone to school for architecture. By RusticDecoInc
This presumably garbage-picked item is described as “charming” and “shabby chic.” I would label it “total crap.”
Another great space-saving solution! By PracticFurniture
I just love the industrial feel of this one! By SouthernRustFurnitur
And speaking of hiding functional furniture in plain sight, I just sent a link to this murphy bed/desk to a client who is looking for ways to maximize her studio apartment’s space! By AndysMurphyBed
Very practical but still stylish enough to be out in your living room or entryway without screaming OFFICE. By SpiritHomeUS
I think the only work I could produce sitting at this headache-inducing piece of decoupaged garbage would look like this.

Very odd-looking desk. Might just be trippy enough to get teenagers to lay off the weed! By OWNdesignstore
I’m kind of fascinated by this converted upright piano desk. It’s very expensive, but if you had a piano hanging around that you didn’t use anymore, I think it would be pretty easy to convert it! By EricaBradleyDesigns

  3. Unusually for Etsomnia, I found I liked the majority of these desks. Some were more my taste than others but only two or three were abhorrent. This post reminds me of when we were in lockdown and I had four kids doing virtual school and a husband working from home and everyone had to get creative with their “desk” solutions.

  4. That’s no desk, that’s a space statio… oh wait, it *is* a desk, too. And anyone setting up a desk in the living room or entranceway is asking to be interrupted by their kids every 2.5 minutes 😛
