If there was one thing apparent in 2020, it was that all of those projected home office trends took an immediate and unprecedented pause in March as a result of our "new normal" (with many of us spending more time than usual at home). 

Instead of concentrating on floral wallpapers and olive trees (which experts believed to be most popular), we pivoted our attention to practical pieces as opposed to prettier parts; with folding desks crowned the 'it' item come 2021, and why is that? 

"We all made our living space work for us last year, and many of our rooms served multiple purposes — we added workspaces to our living rooms, classrooms into our kitchen, and gyms to our bedrooms," says Etsy's Trend Expert Dayna Isom Johnson, in their data report

A foldable desk is both smart and strategic; they can be unfolded during the workday and folded up when the day is over. And, in most cases, these practical pieces are small on space. It's a win-win all around. 

Plus, with a sudden (alleged) surge in searches of up to 339 percent, right now is the perfect time to get ahead of what is set to be the most valuable furniture piece of 2021. 

"This year, shoppers will be finding ways to reimagine their homes and incorporate pieces that help restore balance to our multi-functional space," Johnson also adds, and a foldable desk is a resourceful way to approach that. 

So, if you're someone looking to make the most of your living area, we've got it covered. Continue scrolling to see the top seven foldable desks that are worth the investment in 2021.
