Be it a spare room in the attic, additional space discovered in the basement, a nook in the hallway or even a tiny corner in the kitchen, home workspaces are starting to crop up pretty much everywhere possible.

It also becomes the prelude to an even more anticipated edition of Salone del Mobile that awaits us all in 2018.
