Davenport desk: A small desk with an inclined lifting desktop giving access to a large compartment with ample storage space for paper and other writing implements. Escritoire: A small portable writing desk with a sloping front door hinged at the bottom edge that can be opened to provide a writing surface. It is usually larger than a lap desk.
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.
Bible Box: This type of desk was small and originally meant for storing and using a bible. Rolltop Desk: A series of stacked compartments shelves drawers and the desktop surface can be covered by means of wooden slats that roll or slide through slots in the raised sides of the desk.
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.
Writing desks depending on whether you purchase one from an office supply store a furniture store or an antique shop can range in price anywhere from one hundred dollars to thousands of dollars. Your choice depends on what type of personal statement you prefer to make.
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.
