(Dario Antonioni)

As city condos and apartments shrink to 450 square feet and smaller, residents sometimes find furnishing these miniature spaces challenging.

A full-size sofa or dining table or even a coffee table can overwhelm a small space. So furniture companies are stepping up their offerings for small living quarters.

Orange22 Modern, a U.S. based subsidiary of Design Lab, recently launched a miniaturized version of its Minimal Wall Desk, a workstation that mounts to the wall. In 2010, the company launched its “Minimalist Collection” consisting of bent wood furniture inspired by Charles and Ray Eames and made from sustainably sourced materials.

Buyers can order the Minimal Wall Desk online, and it arrives fully assembled and ready to mount at whatever height works for it. Cables and a power strip can be hidden behind the desk and a pull-out section can accommodate a keyboard or a tablet and a mouse.

The Minimal Wall Desk is 16 inches deep, with the large size 51 inches wide and the small size 36 inches wide. The desks cost from $550 to $700 and are available in red, black, white, rift oak and walnut.
