Matching Colours and Styles: Since each Antique desk and table is by definition unique it is often difficult to get exact matches to existing furniture. However by sympathetically matching period style woods colour and type of furniture it should certainly be possible to achieve a fully harmonious collection. Again Antiquedesks.net can advise on this aspect of choosing your desk or table.
Glass And Steel Desks - These can be very affordable or quite expensive. Some of the least expensive L shaped desks are made from glass and steel. They can be ideal for smaller corners but have minimal features. The corner usually has a raised platform for a computer screen and there is a small platform at the bottom in the corner for the CPU. Other than that however there is little built in storage included.
Practical Matters: Access for installation - most desks are made in three pieces (two pedestals and a top) but a one piece desk or table may require need the access into the room itself to be checked (remember to check the stairs if it is going above the ground floor). Most professional furniture movers such as those employed by Antiquedesks.net can manoeuvre large piece of furnitures but sometimes it just doesn’t fit!
Fall Front Desk: Considered the cousin of the Secretary Desk and has a main working surface or desktop which does double duty as a cover to seal up papers and other items located in small shelves or small drawers before the desk is closed. Partners desk: An antique desk which is basically two pedestal desks initially constructed as one big desk joined at the front for two users working while facing each other.
Things to Consider when buying your Desk: Use: Consider paperwork versus computer work? Storage needs - drawers versus cupboards? How much work area is actually needed and will you be able to reach it?
Size: Does it fit the room? Can you access the desk and other parts of the room? Is it a comfortable height (small adjustments can be made - but only small changes)? Kneehole height and width? Check the depth of the desk so that the work surface can actually be reached?
