Minimalist desks have become quite popular recently — whether you're short on footage and are in need of a compact workspace, or you just find yourself more productive when working from a simple, clean surface. Plus, streamlined desks could even encourage you to keep your office more organized and tidy, since a single drawer allows you to stow papers, pens, and supplies without hoarding unnecessary items.
