Writing Desks for a Digital Era
If you want an antique inspired look but need a desk that can handle your modern day workload, why not consider a writing computer desk. Writing desks have a naturally airy look in comparison to a heavy computer or pedestal desk. They are a great choice for those who work with laptop computers and they look fantastic in any space that does double duty. Read More
Office Furniture Styles
Writing desks have an old-fashioned charm that sets them apart from the crowd. If you are looking for a lighter look for your office environment a writing desk might be the perfect item for you. Most writing computer desks are quite traditional in their design, with details like turned wood legs, elaborate moldings and elegant hardware. If you are looking for a more contemporary look, we also features desks with a funky glass and metal combination finish that will look right at home in your modern space. Or if urban sophistication is what you are after the dramatic and dark look of espresso or black stained wood is a great choice for you. Or go for the light and country-inspired look of classic white. A classic wood finish like mahogany or cherry is always a great option for a corporate or formal environment.
Computer Desk Features
Writing desks might look old-fashioned but they can still have all the modern amenities you need for a modern day office. Many have must-have convenience items like grommets for wire management and pull out keyboard trays. However, one drawback is that most writing desks have little in the way of under the desk storage. Some solve this dilemma by incorporating a small hutch on the top of the desk. A small hutch usually has a few open shelves for paper storage as well as perhaps a drawer or two. This is usually ample storage room for your most important office supplies.

Bush Fairview Corner Desk in Antique White
- Shopper in
I use this as my home computer desk. It's nice and heavy and seems to be very sturdy. There is plenty of space for my large fl
at screen monitor and printer/scanner right next to it, leaving a decent amount of space in front for reading my textbooks or writing and the entire right side for any other use. The CPU cabinet holds the computer my husband made me, which is rather large, very nicely (without the extra shelf in place). The drawers on the right are a good size and slide smoothly in the tracks, and I like the open shelf above them. The color of the surface is very pretty and doesn't seem to scratch easily (and any scratches should blend well with the construction anyway), and the hardware is a nice, brushed nickel color. (Also, I found the chair in the picture at Office Max!)
Assembly was fairly easy, but time consuming. My husband and I, both fairly mechanically inclined, spent several hours over 2 days (in the evenings - not consistently) putting this and the hutch together. I have not encountered any problems/cons yet, so I am very happy!
