Today’s office computer desk is sleek and stylish. Gone are the days of mega-desks that take up half the room. Increasingly compact computers have broadened office desk possibilities, making smaller options a reality. Just as space-saving laptops have become a home office staple, space-saving desks have gained popularity for their versatility and their ability to offer a work surface in the smallest of dwellings.
Yet some still prefer roomy desks that provide maximum storage and organization. Whether you’re searching for a desk that can fit into a corner or you’re looking for a substantial piece that will take center stage, check out our collection of home office desks. Wood, metal, glass and chrome have never been more appealing!
Wooden desks are sturdy and classic, and they come in a variety of colors. The TLD Desk from designer Jannis Ellenberger includes a white powdercoated shelf and lidded drawer for storage. Its oak veneer surface and solid oak open frame are complemented by exposed hardware for an industrial look. [from CB2]
For a clean-lined piece that blends seamlessly with retro decor, try the Flat-Bar Storage Desk. Crafted of engineered wood and a powder-coated metal frame, this desk makes the most of its form. A supply drawer and a file drawer meet light storage needs without sacrificing style. [from West Elm]
Walnut is the wood of choice for the Bulego desk by Abad Diseño for Nueva Linea. The piece is also available in white lacquer, yet there’s something about the wood grain finish below that is both earthy and perfectly modern. While the desk has no drawers, a top shelf is the ideal ledge for office supplies or decorative items.
