This post is sponsored by World Market. They are having a big 30% off furniture sale with code FURN30. My picks are at the bottom of the post!
We recently hired my nephew, Jordan, to be our full-time videographer! More and more of our sponsors are wanting video content and we wanted to amp up our own video game, too. He accepted the job, made the move to Idaho and is settling into a 400 sq foot apartment with lots of natural light.
One of the first things he needed was a desk We found this great marble-topped desk from World Market. It’s actually a counter height table with beautiful veining and simple black legs with a cross bar, perfect for resting feet on. We paired it with this cool black rope counter stool (comes in a set of two!) that is, surprisingly, so comfortable and the perfect height for the table turned desk.
A black wall sconce (under $50!) mounted to the wall gives great overhead, task lighting without taking up and room on his workspace and is home even home without a fiddle leaf fig? We went for the shorter 5′ one from World Market for his apartment and it’s just the right size and couldn’t look more realistic!
The reason we went with a table instead of a traditional desk (besides never being able to pass up marble) is so that it could double as a dining space after work hours and is absolutely the perfect spot for a date night in (he’s single ladies). It’s so convenient that the chairs came in a pair because two fit so nicely tucked underneath.
Keep the plant. Keep the candle. And just swap out the laptop for a table setting for two and there’s absolutely no need to crowd a dining table and desk into 400 square feet. Unless of course you want to invite more people over, then you could buy another set (they’re stackable!) and pull the table out for a game night.
I love multi-function furniture and small spaces and marble tabletops for $300–would make an incredible island, too!
