Desks with Superstructure: very popular in Victorian times and earlier. These desks - which take many forms Dickens desks bankers desks roll top desks Carlton House Desks etc - have a raised structure at the back of the desk with drawers small cupboards or pigeon holes for stationery. Many of these desks were designed to stand against a wall and have a relatively plain or even unfinished rear elevation. Some desks have flat writing surfaces some have raised writing slopes with storage underneath - those with the slope are becoming popular again since the slope provides an ideal "work station" for a laptop computer.
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.
However such a design is not suitable for desktop computer. If you will be doing your works mostly on a PC that has monitor keyboard mouse and CPU cabinet then you need a desk that can accommodate all these computer items. If you will be doing both paper and computer works on the desk then you need a design that will be suitable for both purposes.
Chairs: Desk Chairs fall into three categories. Genuine antique chairs that match the desk or table (including a matching or contrasting leathers). Secondly replica chairs with modern mechanisms and thirdly ultra modern ergonometric chairs with fully adjustable mechanisms. Antiquedesks.net can advise further on suitable chairs for your desk or table and supply most types as required.
Fall Front Desk: Considered the cousin of the Secretary Desk and has a main working surface or desktop which does double duty as a cover to seal up papers and other items located in small shelves or small drawers before the desk is closed. Partners desk: An antique desk which is basically two pedestal desks initially constructed as one big desk joined at the front for two users working while facing each other.
L shaped Bow Front Computer Desk - While still offering some space savings these desks are a little bulkier that traditional L shaped desks but usually take up less wall space. Made from either PVC or wood these desks are sturdier than the cheap fiber board desks. The bow front desks also take up less wall space.
