A hybrid desk where Millennial parents can work while their child plays is high in demand.

Feb 03 2022

A hybrid desk where Millennial parents can work while their child plays is high in demand. YPulse’s What’s Next For Work trend research found that 31% of Millennial parents are working from home full-time—and to reach those working at home or remotely in their community, the Henrico County Public Library in Richmond, Virginia, created a “wood carrel with a work space attached to a play space that can be latched shut to keep small children nearby, occupied, and safe.” Each carrel is lined with a vinyl cushion and the interior walls are decorated with “developmentally appropriate activities” like a mirror set low to the ground for infants, interactive games for toddlers, and holes for playing peek-a-boo. To manufacture the desk and carrel, the library worked with Michigan-based furniture company TMC, which is owned by husband-and-wife Blake Ratcliffe and Sherri Moore. The company offers two versions of the carrels for sale in a “wide variety” of configurations and finishes. According to Ratcliffe, the design has been in demand since the start of the pandemic.
