Hacks office1-781433

Love to work from home…


Materials: Faktum, Pragel, Ekby Laiva, Ledberg…

Description: I horde… but I like things neat and in their place. An audit of what is in my home office would probably making me feel a little faint. So organisation and order are much needed.

Using Faktum wall cabinets as the pedestals and a black stone effect Pragel worktop I was able to maximise the use of space in my small home office as conventional desks are too wide. So I ran a single piece of Pragel down one wall and added an ‘L’ at the end. Hiding all the wires and power cables in the cabinets keeps things neat and dust free.

Two raised platforms made from an Ekby Laiva shelf and Capita legs creates more surface area. Ledberg lighting gives my work areas a much needed boost of light.

    i think the space for the legs is much too small to be confortable, even for a tiny person…

      My partner and I are 5’8 or 157cms, we find the space perfect. He too was concerned about a lack of space, but the depth of the work top means you sit far enough back.

      Maybe v tall people would find it too small, but so far, we’ve had no complaints. :-)
