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. 

Space saver.

BDI offers several compact desks that are designed to offer the ultimate in style and functionality… even if the corner office is literally a corner of your bedroom.


Great wherever space is limited, Bevel packs a ton of function into a small footprint. The unique and durable Forbo desktop surface is reminiscent of a classic desk blotter, making it the perfect writing desk or bill-paying station. Other features include an adjustable mezzanine tray, modesty panel, reversible storage drawer, and integrated cable management.

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.


The elegant T-framed design of the Format desk allows the collection's file pedestal to fit neatly under the desk on both sides, creating a highly functional and compact workstation. The flip-down drawer provides easy access to your keyboard and mouse as well as any rechargeable items, then closes to keep everything tucked away when not in use.

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.


Ideally sized for a compact home office, the Cascadia desk's streamlined design includes a keyboard and storage drawer, along with ample space beneath to easily store a matching mobile file pedestal. Need to go slimmer? Take a look at the Cascadia 6202 laptop desk.

Sequel Wall Desk

For the ultimate space saver, the Sequel wall desk mounts easily to the wall at any height, making it a perfect fit for lofts or small apartments. A convenient ledge holds a power strip, and the lower panel conceals cables and provides easy access to a wall outlet. Use it as a laptop station when it’s time to take care of business, then tuck everything away into the generously sized keyboard drawer when you need an extra surface.

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.
