Moore Desk: Comes in two antique forms - The "Moore Office Queen" (a large desk that has a single large door to lock up the main work surface with drawers and nooks around it; and The "Moore Insurance Desk" (nearly twice as big as the "Office Queen" and also opens up by means of a single large door with its internal work surface sliding in and out). Cubicle Desk: An economical way of putting more desk workers in the same space without actually shrinking the size of their working surfaces. The cubicle walls are used to house papers and other items once left on the horizontal desktop surface.
Desks to be seen from all angles: as mentioned above some desks were always designed to stand against a wall. The original cabinet makers therefore spent less time finishing the rear elevation of the desk sometimes even leaving it with relatively unfinished timbers. Other desks were however always designed to make an impression on anyone entering a room and facing the person sitting behind the desk. In this instance the "rear" of the desks would be highly polished panelled and often decorated or carved. Partners’ Desks also serve this purpose in offering an interesting and usable rear facade.
Self Assembled L shaped Computer Desk - Made by companies like Sauder these desks are the ones you find in big box retail stores as well as major office supply retail outlets. These desks are fairly easy to assemble but can be flimsy. They are often made from particle board fiber board or other wood product materials rather than solid natural wood. They are very economical and fit well in most small corners. For a little extra (but less than $150) Techni Mobili has some very stylish alternatives.
Desk and Bench: Sometimes used to describe a school desk which has a built-in seat. It is also called a "Desk and stool". Desk on a Chest: An antique portable desk made up of two chests: the bottom one usually has drawers and the top one has a hinged desk surface. Desk on a Frame: An antique form made up of two pieces of furniture: a fairly large and closable portable desk and a stand made of it out of the same material and in the same style.
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.
Bush Furniture - This is a definite step up in both quality and price. Bush furniture sells everything from home office furniture to computer workstations for large offices. Their L shaped computer desk collection features everything from standard L shaped desks to bow front desks and large multi-desk corner suites.
