Wall-mounted desks that don’t take up space are a bliss for anyone living in a small apartment.
No legs and retractable surfaces save space while no concessions have been done on looks. Without exception, these 15 desks are genuine eye-pleasers.
1. Pill Wall Desk
Simplicity is a beautiful thing, and no desk displays this universal truth better than the Pill Wall Desk. This desk comes with two cubbies on its underside for easy storage, keeping working materials out of the way until needed.
It provides an easy solution to small spaces and cramped offices, yet it maintains fluidity and grace with a clean design. Classic design meets modern form and function, and we must say that we’re absolutely loving it.
2. Mamba Desk-Shelf
The Mamba Desk-Shelf makes a stunning visual statement with its curvy, sleek design. The Mamba snakes its way along the wall in an incredible aesthetic display, all the while making your work space a centerpiece.

3. FLÄPPS Wall desk
It’s easy to scoot tables and chairs out of the way, but what if your wall shelf isn’t movable? The Fläpps Desk piece takes care of this problem with surprising grace. Rather than move the shelf, you simply have to fold it up against the wall.
You won’t even know it’s there! Its white slats blend into its surroundings and only reappear when you fold the shelves down again. Fläpps Wall Desk can be combined with other modules to create a bigger wall shelving system and is easy mounting; it’s no wonder the Fläpps Desk is so popular.

5. Ghostwriter Desk
The Ghostwriter Wall Desk has an awesome futuristic look to it. Its design is sleek and simple. Several storage cubbies above the work surface let you stow pens, pencils, papers and more up and out of the way.

The Mallet desk’s sturdy build, which is shipped fully assembled, comes in either a mahogany or oak finish and stands only 4 inches out from the wall when folded up.
9. Minimal Float Wall Desk
The Minimal Float Wall Desk from Orange22 appears to hover in midair.
Similar to floating shelves, this desk seamlessly attaches to the wall to create a suspended work area for you and your laptop that holds up to an astounding 150 lbs using a wall-mounted bracket, which can be set to a sitting or standing height.

Mount it just high enough for a seated desk, or put it up higher for a standing desk.
11. Wall-mounted Folding Laptop Desk
Ultra-slim, at only six inches deep, the Wall-mounted Folding Laptop Desk takes up hardly any space at all. Despite this, it has oodles of features.
Four cubbies hold office supplies like pens, staplers and the odd decoration; a paper organizer can be used for loose paper or magazines; and a long, shallow drawer on the bottom keeps other loose materials out of your way. The desk work area itself folds up to hide everything when not in use.
If you want the thinnest of the thin for your wall-mounted desk, look no further than the Flatframe by Michael Hilgers.
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.
13. Wall Desk [Or Bar or Vanity]
If you don’t have room for a desk in your small space, you may want to give the Wall Desk by Norm.Architects. It takes up no ground space and is attached to the wall, freeing up leg space and storage space at the same time.
The Wall Desk folds up when not in use and remains inconspicuous perched on your wall. Fold it back down again, and you’ve got ample workspace for whatever job you have.
14. Fold Out Convertible 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.
Since it’s wall-mounted, you can put it at exactly the right height for you, or even reposition it as your child grows. It’s modelled on the classic secretary’s desk, with a wood-effect finish and leather pull tabs on the drawers.
