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.
Do You Need Drawers? If you already have cabinets or other storage systems in the room then you may not need drawers in your home office desk. However you may want to keep all your items related to your work at one place. A desk with drawers is a good idea. It helps keep your desk neat clean and organized. All small items can be kept in the drawers. Family members will not search their own lost items in the desk because they know only your office work related items are kept in the drawers.
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.
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.
Desks for more than one person: larger desks that have significant depth can be used by two people - facing each other - see Partners’ Desks below. They would likely stand in the middle of an office or study to allow access to all sides of the desk. Obviously such desks also offer a very large work space for a single user.
Other Furniture and Decorations: will the new desk or table match the other fitting and furniture in the room and its decorations? Sometimes a beautiful antique desk or table can actually be the focal point of the room and other pieces and decorations will be bought to match
