Whether you’re working from home, chilling out on the sofa with your favourite YouTube channel or putting in some extra hours after work, it’s nice to take a break from your desk while you’re at your keyboard. But when it comes to laptop trays and lap desks, the options available often lack in design and style what they make up for in practicality. These are not usually items you want on show in your home, but worry not! A new breed of laptop tray is now on the market – and they look good enough not to shove under the sofa!
