I love minimalist design.
It’s no secret that I find it to be less stressful and easier to focus when I’m in a minimalist environment. I prefer clean, clear shelves with little on them and a complete lack of knick-knacks. (Did I mention I don’t do knick-knacks. )
The Minimalist Office Setting
When working, I also prefer a minimalist setting. I like a simple set up with just a desk, chair, and laptop. My office at my day job is uncluttered as well with the standard issue desk and a Herman Miller Aeron chair. I also use a wireless keyboard and mouse.
At home, I prefer the laptop on the desk. However, as I become more deeply involved in the minimalist lifestyle, I’m noticing a change. It’s a subtle, but defining one.
I much prefer quality over quantity.
I’ve begun to research home furnishings and items that are of high quality and simple design. I find that in most things in my life, the more simple the design is, the less distraction I experience.
Since I want minimal distraction when I’m writing and working on the blog, I’m also searching for a a minimalist work desk for my home. This much I know….that it’s mandatory that it possesses the following attributes:
- A very simple design with few (if any) moving parts
- Clever in it’s ability to hide power cords and connection wires (Did I mention I don’t do wires, either? )
- High quality
Here’s what a simple Google search for minimalist desks turned up
I’m still researching these but I hope to reach a decision soon. I’ve also given some thought to constructing my own after seeing what features appeal to me. That would take some in depth thought and some assistance when it comes to fabrication.
