custom home office desk crafted in solid timber with 6 easy access drawers

At a time when working from home has become the new normal, it’s important to maximise your working space. To spark some inspiration, take a moment and re-visit your home office environment. Materials, comfort and practicality should be at the forefront of your set up to make working at home feel more satisfying.

When considering your home office furniture arrangement, there are a few things to consider.

To start, perhaps revaluate your current set up and the things you need… Are you restricted for space? Is your study combined with an additional living area? Will this be a room for adults and children? These are all the things to think of before preparing your home office.

For almost 50 years, Nordic Design have personalized hundreds of home office solutions for many customers… We consider things like the space you have, your style of home and of course your individual working requirements, for ultimate comfort and productivity. This all ensures you’re provided with a storage solution that will benefit your work routine exactly how it should.



Firstly, consider what sort of desk you require… You might prefer the idea of a multi-functional office piece, combining desk and storage? Custom pieces like this are ideal for a home office that gets plenty of use. Alternatively, a more traditional timber office desk could be more suitable for you. We offer traditional and contemporary designs, or can custom build to your preferred style.

Incorporate additional features to get the most comfort from your workspace. Hide unwanted cords with considered design concepts or add internal storage divisions for easy access. And of course, choose from our range of hardwood timbers for gorgeous grain details and natural colours. We offer desks made to any size, based on any design and with plenty of storage variations… Our office desks are all locally designed and handcrafted here in Adelaide.

Next, why not consider your storage options? We understand that maintaining an organised working space can feel a little overwhelming – the thought of paperwork getting lost amongst each other can seem unavoidable. Of course, here at Nordic Design we offer plenty of custom storage options to specifically suit your working space. Consider bookcases with adjustable shelving and cabinets with deep drawers for filing. With specially made cabinets, your home office remains organised and more productive.

A custom bookcase is also handy to have in your home office. Books and journals that quickly build up and lose their place on your desk will now have somewhere to sit. Having a bookcase that doubles as a display cabinet is also a welcomed concept – especially if it’s sitting in a shared living/office space. Designed with glass doors and open shelves, you can hold a range of books and display pieces in the same place.

Tip: Another benefit of having a two-in-one piece like this means you can move it from different rooms of the house when re-decorating.
