Retro office: Mid-century wall desk from West Elm


This mid-century wall desk from West Elm is perfect for those who don't want to compromise space for style. 

West Elm frequently looks to this era for inspiration, which results in more interesting pieces than simply coffee tables and sofas (although they do those too). This desk is a case in point. It's freestanding, but with a wide desktop, plenty of room for storage and for displaying some favourite pieces (try these mid-century-style vases for starters). 

It's made from a solid eucalyptus wood base, with a warm acorn finish, and acacia-veneer wood drawers – all FSC-certified. The bronze-finish metalware on the drawers and sliding cupboard completes the look. 

The desk is priced at £599.
