Messy desk, neat as a pin desk, no desk: workspaces are interesting things. No two are alike but they all reveal secrets about their owners. At least that was the conclusion of associate editor Chris Connolly and photographer Matt Furman when they took a look at the workspaces of a writer, a knife sharpener and a family of oyster farmers for Headquarters.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that our workspaces hold the secrets of our personalities. After all the average full-time employed American works 47 hours a week, mostly from an office space, but not always.
According to the latest numbers from the U.S. Census Bureau, 9.4 percent of U.S. workers labored at least one day at home per week in 2010, and 2.6 percent of the U.S. workforce or 3.3 million people not including the self-employed or unpaid volunteers considered the home their primary place of work.
