Chinese Altar Table: The versatility of this table can be used as an altar dining room buffet sofa table or office computer credenza. It is designed with two end tables or bed-sized tables joined together with a solid piece of cypress wood. Each table has a storage drawer carved on all four sides.
Corner or Free Design - A corner desk is placed in the corner. Generally it is not placed in the middle of the room. The free design is the simple rectangle desk that you can place anywhere you wish. It gives you more flexibility. In future if you want to rearrange furniture and belongings in the room then you can place such a desk at a different place. The corner desk can be L-shaped or I-shaped design. If you choose a corner desk then it should have sufficient width. It is difficult to spread your legs further if a corner desk has a small width. It can put strain on your legs and body if occasionally you cannot stretch your feet in front on the floor.
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.
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.
The increase of paper usage and correspondence prompted the need for producing more complex and specialized desks. Steel desks were introduced to take heavier loads of paper and withstand the pounding dished out on typewriters. Refinements to those first desk forms were considerable through the 19th century. The new desks can be transformed into many different shapes and angles which is ideal for artists.
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.
