Looking for a fun family project to keep your kids busy for the rest of the summer? Now is the perfect time to co-create a functional workspace that will promote productive at-home learning this fall semester.
This blog is intended to serve as a stimulus for you and your children to explore décor, furniture and organization ideas that will transform any area of your home into an invigorating study space. We teamed up with 2Modern and Pottery Barn Teen to curate a selection of our favorite study-space products that are guaranteed to deliver quality and value.
Pick a Desk Your Kid Loves
Placing a desk in your kid’s bedroom makes it easy for them to study where they’re most comfortable. Especially with preteens and teenagers, creating a study space that’s their own will help them take responsibility for their work:
This Oeuf Brooklyn Desk from 2Modern provides an urban take on workspace. With its adjustable height and moveable storage boxes, it can be endlessly used and adapted by every member of the family. Slim, rounded legs and removable storage boxes create a simple, chic design. The desk height is adjustable for growing children, up to adult height.
Convenient for small spaces the MASH LAX Series Wall Mounted Desk from 2Modern can turn any nook into your own home office or study. With built-in storage and a sliding panel that allows for quick storage and access.
2Modern offers free, quick shipping with a 30-day return policy. You’ve got to love that kind of flexibility.
Support Learning with a Comfortable Chair
Study room furniture for kids needs to be cozy! If you’re opting for more traditional seating, choose chairs that provide solid, ergonomic support and are the right size so your child/ren can sit for extended periods of time.
Covered in plush, faux polar bear fur, this Airgo Swivel Desk Chair from Pottery Barn Teen provides comfort and back support simultaneously. Its cushioned seat and casters allow you to scoot around your room without scratching the floor. Adjustable seat height is a must for growing kids.
Make the Most of the Space You Have
Modular furniture with concealed storage is a great way to make the most of a small space. Having designated areas for stationary, books and supplies will encourage tidiness and organization. Creating comfy breakaway areas for reading and relaxation is a must, too.
Inspired by Scandinavian modernism, this Modern Captain’s Bed from Pottery Barn Teen marries a simple silhouette with clean lines and plenty of storage. Deep drawers let you stash all your things discreetly and a pull-out desk and nightstand make this the perfect solution for a small space. Uniquely designed in collaboration with West Elm.
This Cozy Lounge Around Pillow Cover and Hypoallergenic Lounge Around Pillow Insert can be easily removed to clean or to change up your look. Available in three neo-neutrals to choose from, it’s the ultimate study buddy whether you’re lounging on the couch or reading in bed. Bring on the #LoungeLife!
