Simple Writing Desk | Writing Computer Desk | Cheap Writing Desks

Sometimes Simple Writing Desks Are Best

It is easy to admire a good decorative writing desk because a truly admirable writing desk adds a great decor to the room, and indicates style and class. These desks are great for writing letters or keeping bills, or great at simply looking great. These types of decorative and fancy writing desks are a great addition to any home, but the time of having a writing desk or hutch simply as a status symbol is long gone. Because of technology nowadays, many people prefer a simple writing desk because a simple writing desk can also act as a simple computer desk, which is what many people actually practically need.

This writing desk, A Lisio Collection Writing Desk, or a Lisio Collection Computer Desk, is simple yet well built, and practical for modern use.
Liso Collection Writing or Computer Desk
This writing desk is a great value, since it's nearly impossible to find a good writing desk for under $200, but that's exactly what this is. Priced at $199, this is a reasonable writing desk that looks good, but can accommodate a laptop or desktop computer, something many of the roll top writing desks can not do.  Sometimes simple writing desks are simply the way to go.

Modern Writing Desks | Gentelman's Caddy | Small Writing Desks | Cherry Wood Writing Desks

Modern Writing Desks Antique Fascimilie Desks Fancy Office Desks

There are many great writing desks that you can find online, and from black modern office desks to antique cherry wood writing desks, no office is complete without an appropriate and attractive desk. Although the writing desk has come a long way from its original design and intention, one draw back to modern technology is how often a desk is a simple and ugly piece of furniture that sits in the corner and holds the monitor to your computer and nothing more.

A good writing desk used to be an indication of taste, style, and success. If you're looking not for an ugly glass computer desk, but you want the type of L shaped writing desk, U shaped writing desk, or the good old fashioned types of furniture that scream class, then take a look at this Gentleman's Caddy.
This Gentleman's Caddy is a handsome piece of office furniture, and is designed after 17th century English writing cubbies and early American furniture. This small writing desk just exudes class and taste, reminding you of the age of solid walnut furniture and the old fashioned antique desks and cabinetry.
A Gentleman's Caddy makes a fine writing desk, and this furniture features beautifully rendered spindle legs and delicate lines that create a sophisticated and refined look. This walnut writing desk is hand rubbed to a finish that reflects an antique desk's wealth of character and nods to the craftmanship of old and classic writing desks and writing tables.

This Gentleman's Caddy desk features a popular drop-down writing surface, eight drawers, and two petite display shelves. This replica antique writing desk features hand-cast decorative hardware that enhances the authenticity of this beautiful piece of office furniture. The wood's extraordinary luster is achieved through an exclusive, 25-step hand-finishing process, resulting in a deep finish that will attract the attention of sophisticated eyes.

This piece isn't a good computer desk, and isn't a large office desk or a desk for a busy home office, but this is a fantastic gentleman's caddy that can add class or style to any room, and is fantastic for writing letters and other correspondance.

Finding the Perfect Writing Desk

The writing desk has long been a sign of refined taste. While modern designs of writing desks have changed to accommodate technology, antique writing desks have long been considered wonderful pieces of furniture that hinted at sophistication while also working in a practical manner for the owner.

Writing desks also worked as a compact office, with everything needed in one area. In the old times these roll top desks were specifically designed for individuals who were writing letters by hand, though because of the changes in technology many of these desks also double as computer (or at the very least, laptop) desks now. For many the L shaped desk is now prefered to an old fashioned writing desk, as its functionality is better.

Many of the old school writing desks will have roll top covers, while many modern styles of writing desks are simpler, without the top. Individuals who want a desk that is aesthetically pleasing will often times go for the roll top writing desks since that cover allows for an easy way of hiding private work from public viewing while adding a pleasing aesthetic.

Most of the oldest antique writing desks are English, and were manufactured in England following the Restoration in the late 1600s. Oak was used first, and then was followed by walnut, as the two most common used for these pieces of antique furniture, as they were the most common wood available at the time, with Walnut the trendy pick of that age.If you're looking for a modern writing desk, there are several questions you will want to ask yourself. Are you looking for function, or do you care more about form? Do you like the old styles of furniture and desks, or do you like something much more simple and modern? How much are you willing to spend for the perfect writing desk? Are you looking for one where you can use your computer or laptop, as well?

All these questions make a major difference in determining what type of furniture you will want to look at purchasing. A good writing desk to use a laptop on that will fit in the bedroom is far different from a desk that will go out in the study and will act as a good looking piece of furniture to fit in with an all wood office.

There are plenty of places to look over literally hundreds of different choices. This is another good idea of what specifically you're looking for before searching, so you're not overwhelmed. The perfect writing desk is out there somewhere for you, now you just need to find it!
