The Art of Order
The key to a clear mind is a clutter-free space. Nurture clarity with sleek structures that keep everything in its place and let your best ideas come through uninterrupted. Whether you’re drafting your memoir or sketching the next big start-up’s logo, you need a desk that can help you get the job done—and look the part while doing it.
Although it’s crucial to have a space that can support your daily tasks, its equally as important to have a space you enjoy being in. It can improve your productivity, boost your mood, and even enhance your creativity. The feeling of inspiration comes a lot easier when your environment feels aligned with your personal style. From minimalist and streamlined to eclectic and unique, we have a wide variety of solutions.
Whether you’re dealing with a tiny corner of the room, a closet turned workstation, or a full-fledged designated office, our carefully curated selection has the options you’ll need to make your space your own.

If you’re multi-tasking, then your space should be, too. Rely on the versatile staples and easy-going accessories to take your dual-purpose room from all work to all play (in no time at all).
Whether in closed quarters or stepping into the spotlight, our sleek surfaces can be dressed up with decorative items or strictly business with office essentials. Pair our desks with the customizable Nixon office chair upholstered in your favorite fabric to complete the vignette.

For Your Consideration
Before landing on your perfect match, we recommend considering the other elements and materials in the room: from existing furniture to wall colour, each aspect of your space should work in harmony and feel intentional.
Another key consideration should be scale: the size of your desk should feel comparable to the size of your room and any corresponding pieces of furniture. This will prevent your space from feeling overcrowded and ensure a cohesive final look. There are no wrong answers! It’s just about finding what works best for your lifestyle and space.
Before finalizing your decision, you should also consider function. What will its primary purpose be, and what other features might be an asset to your home and the flow of daily life? Do you find you’re always scrambling for more storage? Or are you in need of an extra surface to display heirlooms and sentimental items? The right desk can help serve either function, whether you need closed storage to keep odds and ends out of sight or open shelves to display décor items.
If you have a space that needs grounding (lots of muted colours and ethereal fabrics) then you likely want a piece with substance to act as an anchor. If you have a heavier space with more robust pieces, you might want to balance these more substantial elements with a table that embodies lightness.
Consider how the rest of the room will be assembled and what functional needs should be fulfilled. Extra storage? Mount additional surface area in the form of shelves above your desk (provided it’s against a wall).
Having trouble nailing down your selection? Our design services are here to help. At EQ3, we believe that knowledge is for sharing. We delight in every opportunity to share the experience we’ve acquired over the years of considering space and design and the interplay between them. So much so, that we’re giving it away for free.
If great design is all about context (it is!), then a piece must be considered in relation to the people and the space at hand. Even an identical sofa in two different homes might look, feel and function differently in each role. Our complimentary design services will connect you with a local design expert for a virtual, in-home, or in-store consultation (in accordance with local COVID-19 restrictions). They’ll then start observing the nuances of your space, guiding you through the process of selecting pieces that serve your lifestyle and highlight your home’s existing features and furniture.
This service isn’t just for major redesigns either: even the simple task of a lighting revamp could benefit from a helping hand and an expert eye.
Your consultation will encompass all product categories: furniture, accessories, and our EQ3+ brands; EQ3’s vast selection of fabrics and leathers; material options and finishes; lighting; and options for placement/layout.
Your design expert will create a custom mood board to clarify your vision, provide complimentary material swatches for your consideration, and build a 3D floorplan of your space to bring the design to life and ensure your square footage is maximized.
Your design expert will help you understand where to invest and where to save, ensuring each dollar is spent wisely and efficiently on a timeless look—a feature new homeowners can certainly appreciate.

Established in 2001 in the heart of the Canadian prairies, we set out to become a new destination for furniture and home goods.
Inspired by a landscape that has always been defined by negative space, we filled a gap in the market with high quality designs that leave our imaginations open—to interpretation, to play.
Canadian by Design means that we leave space for life to unfold and inspiration to bloom—space for your voice to be heard.
It means we understand that your home should be as unique as you are, which is why we’ve put personalization at the core of every collection.
But mostly, it means you can trust us to never lose sight of what keeps us going (...you!).
We keep the human at the heart of our operation. Our manufacturers and designers all create under the same roof. From sketch to our production floor, your piece is always passed through careful hands and keen eyes before it’s sent off.
Ours is an operation rooted in collaboration: beyond the local talent building our brand and the pieces under it, we frequently invite other voices in--including yours.
It’s no accident that our customer care team sits twenty feet away from product development: our home-base is structured so that your feedback can be implemented in real time, shaping our designs and practices of tomorrow.
The people we work with are the lifeblood of this company: from the creative vision of our designers to the craftsmanship of our upholsterers.
We make our upholstery pieces one at a time at our Canadian HQ, so we can focus on building quality furniture made to last, one at a time.
Whether it’s one of our icons or a reimagined classic, we sweat the small stuff so you don’t have to. Because we think the little things are worth paying attention to and great design is in the details. Because with every sketch and every stitch, we aim to make the everyday feel extraordinary.
So set your standards high—we’ll meet you there.
