So, you want an affordable, minimalist desk for your home office. You get online and find about a million options. Now what? Do you just shop by price? Do you read reviews in the hopes of finding one that gets five-star ratings across the board? Do you just buy one that looks good and hope for the best? You could certainly do any of those things, but if you want a minimalist desk that will meet your expectations for quality, durability, style, and price, you might need to look to smaller retailers, rather than just at the desks offered by the big players like Wayfair, Amazon, and Target.
At first glance, this minimalist desk by online retailer RLDH looks fairly basic. But look more closely and you’ll see that it’s actually thoughtfully designed with several interesting features that you might not find in other minimalist desks. First of all, the desk has a peg on both of the front legs for hanging various items, such as a backpack, purse, or headphones. These come in handy to keep your items off the floor, but also off the surface of your desk. Second, the desk has a cut-out near the back of the desktop for cords and cables. This allows you to place the desk flush against the wall and also consolidates all of your cords and cables together for a neater look. Finally, and probably most simply, the desk has a magnet on its underside where you can place the tool that is used to assemble the desk. That way, when the time comes to move the desk, you’ll have the tool that you need to take it apart handy for easy moving.
Speaking of assembly, this minimalist desk is very easy to put together and take apart. It only requires that the user put in two bolts per leg, using the included tool. Customers report that the desk can be assembled in a manner of minutes. One customer even commented, “…it took me longer to unpack it than it did to assemble; the assembly was a cinch!”
Don’t let the simple assembly fool you, though. This desk is as sturdy as they come! It was thoughtfully designed by an engineer using quality materials. The materials used are also eco-friendly. The Baltic birch with maple veneer is CARB compliant, meaning it contains no harmful chemicals such as formaldehyde. It is treated with a UV coating that makes the surface durable and easy to keep clean.
Here’s what some of the minimalist desk’s users have to say about it:
“Very good quality and insanely easy to put together. Beautiful and simple design. I have been looking for a very long time for something like this – don’t hesitate to buy if you work from home and want something beautiful and timeless you can feel good about.”
“This desk is a beauty and exactly what I was looking for. Solid wood, clean lines, thoughtful design and very sturdy. A wonderful piece that I believe will stand the test of time.
The desk can be ordered with a matching monitor riser if you like your screen at a higher level. The riser also helps to hide any cords.
