Three Ways to Use the Halvard Office Desk

25th October 2018

Let us introduce you to the Halvard...

It's time we introduced you to one of our best-loved products in the home office category: the Halvard office desk. This gorgeous piece of furniture has been around for some time now but we're still loving it. In today's blog post, we're going to show you three different ways that this beautiful white painted and natural wood desk can fit into your home. But before we do that, let's learn a little bit about the product. First things first, it's clearly inspired by Scandinavian design. The clean, minimal lines are very typical of Scandi style whilst the neutral colours add authenticity. Secondly, the Halvard contains three separate drawers for handy storage - perfect if you want to keep things tidy. And lastly, the desk measures up at 120cm in width, 76cm in height and 55cm in depth. This should give you a pretty good idea of how it will fit in your home.

Here are three ways to use the Halvard office desk

Now you know the basics, let's take a look at what you can actually do with this amazing on-trend desk. We've come up with three different ways you can use this desk to transform your home into a stylish but functional space.

1. Create a proper home office with all the trims

Of course, the most natural way to use any desk is to put it in an office. If you're lucky enough to have a spare room that can be used as a home office, then the Halvard will be the perfect fit. But don't worry if not, you can place this desk in any nook of your home and create a home office 'area'. It's just as effective! The drawers serve well as storage areas - great for paperwork, pens and accessories. You could also store your laptop or other gadgets here whilst they're not in use, to keep clutter from ruining the aesthetic of your home. Add decor with a stylish lamp, cute pen pots and a houseplant. For more inspiration on how to design a home office, check out our earlier blog post on office style.

2. Add an alternative dressing table to your bedroom

Another way you could potentially use the Halvard desk is as a dressing table in the bedroom. Just because it's called an 'office desk' doesn't mean it has to act like one. Create a boutique station to do your hair and make-up in the mornings with this beautiful-looking surface. It's got all the storage you could need for your bits and bobs! This would be perfect for someone who desperately needs a dressing table but doesn't want to go down the traditional route. For the minimalist out there, this could be right up your street. Either add a stand-up mirror to the desk or place one on the wall in front of the desk to complete the look.

3. Create more surface space and storage in your living room

Not everyone wants to opt for an old-fashioned console in their living room, especially if you're a fan of the minimalist or Scandinavian style. Likewise, you might not have the room for a hefty cabinet or sideboard but need just a little extra surface space. Why not consider our Halvard office desk? It can definitely double up as a smaller console for the modern living area or hallway. Simply decorate with houseplants, photo frames and candles for that cosy, homely look. It can even store your remote controls and magazines if you want to keep clutter off the coffee table! The best way to use this office desk to its full potential is to think outside the box, although we'd probably say that for any piece of furniture.
