Other Furniture and Decorations: will the new desk or table match the other fitting and furniture in the room and its decorations? Sometimes a beautiful antique desk or table can actually be the focal point of the room and other pieces and decorations will be bought to match
Writing desks depending on whether you purchase one from an office supply store a furniture store or an antique shop can range in price anywhere from one hundred dollars to thousands of dollars. Your choice depends on what type of personal statement you prefer to make.
Desks versus Writing Tables and Library Tables: Writing and Library Tables come in much the same sizes as Desks however the key difference being that the tables usually only have a single line of frieze drawers under the work surface. (Writing tables have drawers on one side of the table only - library tables have drawers to both sides - sometimes called Partners’ tables). Tables can provide an interesting alternative to a desk if only limited storage is required. Aesthetically a table can make the room look larger since more of the floor can be seen as compared to the bulk of a desk that comes right down to the floor. For buyers with attractive floor coverings (or bare wood) a writing or library table can be a very interesting alternative to a desk. Some Clients also specify both Desk and Writing Table/Library Table for their office. The table can be used as an extra work space (perhaps separating paperwork from computer work - or as a meeting table. The style and wood of desk and table will need to be compatible and the leather work surfaces (where fitted) will also need to be matched.
Desks with Superstructure: very popular in Victorian times and earlier. These desks - which take many forms Dickens desks bankers desks roll top desks Carlton House Desks etc - have a raised structure at the back of the desk with drawers small cupboards or pigeon holes for stationery. Many of these desks were designed to stand against a wall and have a relatively plain or even unfinished rear elevation. Some desks have flat writing surfaces some have raised writing slopes with storage underneath - those with the slope are becoming popular again since the slope provides an ideal "work station" for a laptop computer.
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.
L shaped Bow Front Computer Desk - While still offering some space savings these desks are a little bulkier that traditional L shaped desks but usually take up less wall space. Made from either PVC or wood these desks are sturdier than the cheap fiber board desks. The bow front desks also take up less wall space.
