Time is precious. And for those who work from a home office in a loft, apartment, or smaller house, space can be equally so. 

When there’s work to do, a smartly designed compact desk will help to make the most of your available workspace so that you can make the most of your time.

Here are some of the top BDI desks thoughtfully engineered for smaller spaces. 

Soma Collection

The Soma Collection includes multiple stylish desk and motion-table designs that pack a ton of functionality into a compact space.

Perfect for a small home office, Soma combines modern style, thoughtful engineering, and the features you need to get things done in a smaller footprint.

Centro Return

The Centro Return was designed to expand the Centro desk. Still, those needing a slimmer workstation can easily attach it to any Centro storage cabinet for use as a standalone desk that fits easily in a spare bedroom or kitchen.

And, should you later need to expand to a larger workstation, there is plenty of room – and available components – to grow.

Linea Console Desk

The Linea Console Desk features a slim yet highly functional design that is perfectly at home used in an entryway, as a compact workspace or neatly placed behind a sofa.

The generously sized keyboard and storage drawer features a flip-down front that seamlessly blends into the console when not in use.

Include the mobile file pedestal to create a more organized and efficient small office space.

Linea Desk

Modern and clean in its design, the Linea Desk features a wood-top desk surface, a full-width keyboard / storage drawer, and intelligent wire management to keep things organized.

Easy-access front and rear panels conceal cords and cables and can be tilted down for convenient access to all of your connections. A power management ledge is perfectly positioned to keep wires organized and out of sight.

Sigma Compact Desk

Designed for smaller spaces - yet full of innovative features - the Sigma compact desk includes a keyboard drawer, integrated cable management, and is ideal for use as a convenient laptop desk.

A modesty panel seconds as an easy-access storage compartment for cords, and the Sigma collection's available storage cabinets allow for expansion.

Sequel 6103

The ultimate space saver—yet full of innovative features—this compact desk includes a multifunctional keyboard drawer and wire management system that helps to provide an organized and efficient workstation.

Select from two steel frames—Satin Nickel and Black powder coat—and three wood finishes to create the Sequel Office that is perfect for your style.


The Serif height-adjustable laptop stand, desk, and side table effortlessly glide to the perfect height on a smooth pneumatic cylinder.

This portable table's slim and sturdy base slides easily under a sofa or chair, always keeping the versatile surface close at hand for work or play.

Depending on your home office space needs, you are sure to find a compact desk from BDI that offers the style, function, and features that you need to create an efficient and organized workspace.  

Also, being part of larger office collections, you can easily expand as your needs and available space change in the future.
