If you want the thinnest of the thin for your wall-mounted desk, look no further than the Flatframe by Michael Hilger.
When folded up, the Flatframe’s exterior, which has a depth of barely more than an inch, holds your choice of photo or painting, completely disguising the desk inside.
When it’s time to get creative, fold the desk down to reveal a working station with a magnetic board for tacking reminders, pen holders, and outlets to charge your devices in.
Flatframe comes with an option for the exterior to be coated in blackboard paint, making it a memo board when not in use as a desk.

15. Gaston Wall Writing Desk
Sometimes there just isn’t enough space for a desk at home, yet it’s hard to stay focused when you’re trying to work at the kitchen table. Gaston Wall Writing Desk has a flip-down table below storage drawers.
