2. Saving space is now a cakewalk

This extremely sleek and savvy desk is a must-have for compact apartments or small homes, where space is a premium. A slim door opens up on its bottom half to reveal drawers which can be used for storing stuff. And the top half comes with a door that pops out to become a table when you need to sit down and work. It offers provisions to arrange tablets, phones and magazines too.

3. A clever room divider too

When is a desk not just a desk? When it is part of a closet, which separates a room into different functional zones! For instance, this sleek storage cabinet acts like a partition in this room, and helps by creating unique areas for different purposes. And when you have to work or study, you can simply pull out the desk from one of its niches, and get started.
