However, your cramped studio apartment doesn’t have to be devoid of a designated workspace. The new Georg Console table from Design Within Reach is only 13 inches deep and 29 inches wide and will rest up against any wall. It is made from raw Oak; the natural beauty of its wood grain is susceptible to stains, so be careful not to spill your glass of writing whiskey. $299+
