The Desk is Back and Better Than Ever!

Remember when every new kitchen had a built-in desk?  And every child’s room had one for homework?  Office desks were replaced with “computer tables” and “work stations”.  Once laptop computers became the common mode of communication, desks seemed to take more of a back seat.  I’ve always loved a great desk to work at, and now they’re back in all sizes, styles, and colors.  Here are some of our favorites-  Maybe it’s time to bring one back in your home!?

Short on space?  This one can double as a book shelf and the extra cabinets can be used for extra storage.

For a modern twist on a traditional classic, I just love the x-bar and finial on this desk.

Love the painted finish on this classic, and of course the metal and stone is a timeless look.
