Writing desks

How to choose this product

A writing desk is designed for paperwork, computer and other types of tasks. It may be freestanding or wall-mounted. On ArchiExpo, these items are categorized by properties such as style, type of material, function, or special features (folding, etc.).

Applications

This furniture is found in private, public and professional settings, including libraries and schools, hotels and offices. It may have integrated lighting, seating, drawers, cupboards or shelves, and may be built into larger pieces of furniture, such as a wall unit or beneath a loft bed. Some include unusual features, such as an exercise treadmill.

Technologies

While traditional writing desks are often constructed from joined wood, many modern versions are flat-packed for assembly by the user. Popular materials include stainless steel, glass, wood, plastic and laminated boards.

How to choose

When choosing, consider available space, intended use and users. While many configurations are standard, there are also unusual asymmetric and curved models. A sturdy design should be chosen for desks that will hold a computer or other heavy equipment. Some have holes for running cables to the floor or wall. Drawers and shelves should be adequate for the items to be stored.

Desk style may be chosen to contrast or complement the decor. A red, minimalist design desk will stand out in a room with a neutral color scheme.
