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.
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.
PC or Laptop - A laptop does not require a desk with too many slots. A simple flat top desk is sufficient for the purpose. However a desktop computer requires proper slots in the desk to accommodate all the computer parts. Make sure the desk can accommodate additional computer accessories like printer. Less space is needed for an all-in-one printer but more space is needed if the printer and scanner are two separate units. If you use a landline phone or fax machine then the desk should have the space or slot for such a device.
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.
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.
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.
