Workspace of the Week: Mid-century modern shared home workspace for parents and child

This week’s Workspace of the Week is localARC’s Steelcase desk-inspired home office for the family:

On the wall opposite the office desk is storage for equipment (like the printer) and supplies:

But then, on the wall to the left of the office desk, next to the door to the room, is this awesome kid’s coloring desk:

This office is full of clean lines and empty of clutter. It is a space where parents and children can work side-by-side and get things done. I find the space incredibly inspiring. Thank you, localARC, for sharing your space with us.

Also, don’t forget that workspaces aren’t just desks. If you’re a cook, it’s a kitchen; if you’re a carpenter, it’s your workbench.

    Nice! But imagine if the kid’s and parent’s desks were facing each other?

    That way they could be working but still ‘together’, you know?

    Why set the kid up for soul-sucking, impersonal cubicle life early? LOL!

    As a work at home mom of a 4 year old, 2 year old, and 1 year old, I think this office is GENIUS!

    I love how each space is unique and equipped with its tools while still coexisting in the same space. I’m very much inspired to set up something similar for my 4 year old to work by me while his sisters nap.

    Thank you for sharing!

    I had an old metal desk like that and loved it dearly. I tried to move it when I got divorced and it wouldn’t budge. I never understood how we got in it there to start with!

    I’m a big fan of color (I love the colorful kid desk), but the gray, black, and white of this office is wonderfully classic and serene. I like it!

    I have two desks in my home office – usually for me and my work. However, one of my adult sons has Special Needs and he visits me weekly. His reading and writing abilities are at a preschool level. He loves to staple and sticker paper and fill out forms with his squiggly “writing.” He has always been welcome in my office. I think he learned his love of office work from me :)

    Thanks for featuring our office! I love having our little man in there while I’m working. He loves to help use the Doxie scanner to go paperless, too :)
