Contemporary style computer armoires emphasize form and function. While they can include decorative detail, it is pared down and kept to a minimum. Contemporary style computer armoires can be visually interesting with their use of different textures like leather, wood and metal hardware, in the same furniture piece. Lines are straight and clean, use of geometric shape is common and edges are sharp.

Country style computer armoires are charming, rustic or casually sophisticated. Decorative detail can include beadboard insets, distressed finishes, scalloped aprons and skirts, turned legs and simple hardware, especially round drawer pulls made of wood. While country style uses many traditional style decorative accents such as moldings, scrolls and motifs, lines and curves are relaxed, resulting in furniture that is casual, unpretentious and inviting.

A Mission style computer armoire possesses an ageless simplicity. Profiles are angular, lines clean and straight and decorative detail is very simple with no carved, embossed or engraved elements. Because Mission and Shaker styles resemble each other so closely, they are often used interchangeably, even though Mission emerged around the early 1900s while Shaker first appeared during the 1700s. The most distinguishing feature of Mission style is its slatted wood detailing paired with a warm wood finish.
