I owe much of the success this site has seen in recent months to you, the readers. Your support, kindness and engagement have been inspirational. In particular, your submissions help enormously. They help elevate Simple Desks above the run of the mill workspace blogs that litter the internet, and for that I am very, very grateful. They are so important for one simple reason: they represent authenticity. Achievable, authentic simplicity. They form a kind of antidote against some of the more contrived, extravagant desks that appear here, and strike a nice balance between functionality and beauty. Without them, Simple Desks would roam dangerously close to a desk porno site, and that isn’t what I want. So thank you for all your submissions thus far, and please keep them coming.
I’ve updated the submit page with a much clearer set of submission guidelines. I really encourage you to have a look, even if you don’t intent to submit - they might give you an insight into how I select ones to publish. Finally, another small piece of news: from now on, all submissions that don’t make the cut will be posted in the new ‘Unseen Submissions’ Pinterest board.
Thanks guys for the continued support.
