Maiolaine Bourgeois Desks April 12, 2018 21:33:21
Desks to be seen from all angles: as mentioned above some desks were always designed to stand against a wall. The original cabinet makers therefore spent less time finishing the rear elevation of the desk sometimes even leaving it with relatively unfinished timbers. Other desks were however always designed to make an impression on anyone entering a room and facing the person sitting behind the desk. In this instance the "rear" of the desks would be highly polished panelled and often decorated or carved. Partners’ Desks also serve this purpose in offering an interesting and usable rear facade.
Desk and Table Combinations: As mentioned above there are circumstances where more work space (or meeting space) is required. In this instance a combination of desk and writing or library table could be appropriate (or boardroom type table).
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.
As we continue to unleash the architectural function form and styles of the most common desk variations produced let’s examine the designs of the following writing desks: Bible Box Rolltop Desk and Bench Desk on a Chest Desk on a Frame Moore Desks Cubicle Davenport Escritoire Fall Front Desk Partners Desk and Chinese Altar Table.
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.
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.
