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.
Simple L-Shaped or U-Shaped Design - Simple rectangle desk can be placed anywhere in the room. L-shaped desk are suitable for the corner space. U-shaped design is used in the middle of the room. This type of desk may have a slight curve or a complete U-shape. The U-shaped design gives you more functionality and flexibility. You can keep your work related items on your sides as well. You will have access to many more items at your arms length. However a desk with such a design cannot be placed anywhere. It can be difficult to place it somewhere else if you decide to rearrange everything in the room.
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.
Practical Matters: Access for installation - most desks are made in three pieces (two pedestals and a top) but a one piece desk or table may require need the access into the room itself to be checked (remember to check the stairs if it is going above the ground floor). Most professional furniture movers such as those employed by Antiquedesks.net can manoeuvre large piece of furnitures but sometimes it just doesn’t fit!
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.
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.
