Hit the Books - Study Spaces that Earn A's

In no time, your kids will be back in school and hitting the books once again. Why not inspire their success with a super slick new place for them to study? We have some design suggestions that’ll definitely help them bring home an A.

A desk, or work surface, is essential.

Desks We Love

We give this desk from Land of Nod an A-plus! It comes in three colors, but we’re wild about the gray. Adding the optional hutch provides extra cubbies for kids to stash stuff and a built-in cork board.

No room for a traditional desk? No problem!  

This is how we solved a space challenge with style. By capitalizing on the vertical space available, we gave this lucky kid a cool study area with ample storage.

This Mid-century mini-desk from West Elm is a tiny treasure for tight spaces. There’s plenty of style packed into compact design. We give it high marks for clean lines and a retro feel.

We think this natural steel desk from Room & Board is ideal for narrow spaces. It’s less than 2 feet wide. We think it deserves honors for its sleek, industrial feel.

This option will make you feel like you just aced economics! Target's Darley Writing Desk not only has lovely lines, but it includes a hidden power source. And…it’s less than a hundred bucks! We’re crushing on the vintage oak, but it’s also offered in walnut.

Don't Overlook the Importance of a Great Task Lamp

Now let’s shed a little light on the topic of desk lamps. Once again we turn to Target for design options that won’t break your back to school budget.

The Murphy Task Lamp is a great bang for your design buck at less than $30. We find the peacock-blue perfect for a kid's desk, but it also comes in black and brass.

The Audrey Collection Desk Lamp offers a bit more sophistication. It has a slick, sort of futuristic feel. It’s also a great buy at less than $40.

We had to toss in a couple of to-die-for designs for extra credit. The Cecil Task Lamp from RH Baby & Child definitely gets an A in geometry. We adore its simple elegance.

Another luxurious lighting option – this hand-polished solid brass Landau Lamp from Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co. Super modern and sculptural, this is the sort of lamp you and your child can treasure for a lifetime.
