10 essentials for a wonderful, functional desk

The way we work tomorrow is rewriting the way we use space, and it’s now commonplace to give it a special place in our interiors, which have been redesigned for the occasion. A room in its own right or a hybrid space, to accommodate a new professional activity, work remotely in style or simply enjoy a space of your own to store your papers and get creative, a well organised office space provides a prism for your creativity.
With desks, office accessories, iconic lamps and stylish decor, these 10 special gems selected by our teams will make life at work much more enjoyable.
