Antique Writing Furniture - Flat Top Desks: these are the most popular type of desk being the most versatile particularly when a large work space is required for paperwork and/or computer equipment. Various sizes are available from the smallest 36" (91cm) width up to larger workspaces of 72" (183cm) or greater. The depth of the desk is important - the narrower the desk the closer the working material is to the user - a deeper desk allows more storage but some of it may be out of arms reach.
PC or Laptop - A laptop does not require a desk with too many slots. A simple flat top desk is sufficient for the purpose. However a desktop computer requires proper slots in the desk to accommodate all the computer parts. Make sure the desk can accommodate additional computer accessories like printer. Less space is needed for an all-in-one printer but more space is needed if the printer and scanner are two separate units. If you use a landline phone or fax machine then the desk should have the space or slot for such a device.
Bible Box: This type of desk was small and originally meant for storing and using a bible. Rolltop Desk: A series of stacked compartments shelves drawers and the desktop surface can be covered by means of wooden slats that roll or slide through slots in the raised sides of the desk.
