With Indoff, get comfortable and functional office desks that fit every work style.

If you’re like many hard working Americans, you have at some point stopped and looked around the surrounding office desks and wondered: How did it get like this? You see empty coke cans, half-filled coffee mugs, Post-it notes scattered like confetti, pens, files out of order, and maybe even a half eaten sandwich from the day before. Perhaps you are completely the opposite: your pens are neatly placed on one side, Post-its on the other, and files stacked in a  perfect perpendicular line against your origami tree. Your office desk can say important things about your personality and how you approach your work.

There are a few different categories that might describe your office desk and beyond. Perhaps you are a little bit of each. So what does your desk say about you?

The Spartan: This is for the minimalist warrior in you. A person that sticks to the basics, doesn’t fall for the unnecessarily ornate and doesn’t keep more than they need. They survive with little and can make it go a long way. This means your desk doesn’t pile up, get cluttered, or accumulate extra accessories or junk. You might encounter: a lot of free desk space, pens in place, folders organized and color coded.

The Collector:  It’s hard for you to let go. You consider that you might need that one Post-it note even though it’s been a week since that one meeting. The collector also takes a few days to clear out old messages, packages, or lunch remnants. You might encounter: big paper stacks, unorganized files, scattered pens, and random trinkets or papers.

The Information Geek: You are meticulous with information and you like to document everything to maintain order. A physical reminder is important for you and so your office desk is a kind of organized chaos, but what you exhibit has a distinct purpose. You might encounter: marked calendars, reminders, family photographs, reference books, maps, and/or project specific notes.

The Yogi: This office desk tends to be soothing to look at. This is for the person that is the best to handle stress, doesn’t panic, and usually calms everyone down when you’re close to deadline on a major project. They might do Yoga or meditation on their lunch hour. You might encounter: soothing plants, pleasant colors, a Buddha statue, and an organized surface with an added element of inspirational posters or items.
