Work, Work, Work

As I searched my brain on what to cover next, I found it becoming increasingly difficult to determine what I should write about. I wouldn't mind covering my bases at least once before I blog on other things. I thought, as I was sitting at my desk with the best posture possible, that I could write about desks. Imagine my disappointment when I found that there weren't too many desks to even write about. Here are three desks I found to be interesting.

Desk One: This desk actually has drawers on both sides. This creation, by Robert Brou, is known as the "Wave" desk. Notice the intricate detail and curves of the piece. The drawers eliminate the need for hardware, as they smoothly return to their place. What I would like to know is how annoying it must be to clean! I remember my mother's table had one little inlet that circled around the table and that was annoying enough to get things out of---imagine cleaning this!

Desk Two: I would not purchase this desk but I find it very interesting. The banded color pattern on the wood is fairly detailed. Coined the "Rainbow Desk" by designer Allan Luke, this piece is made from a myriad of different trees and invokes a real sense of nature.

Desk Three: Ah, yes. This appears not to be for purchase but I wanted to include this since many of the desks I was viewing didn't have that funk factor. I actually think I like this and see this as a fun piece that can be placed in a variety of places, such as a library, a book store, etc.

Looking for more neutral pieces with a flair? Check out Oprah.com's "18 Unique Desks in Every Style and Budget." Here you will find a variety of different desks in all different colors with slightly different styles. To me, many of them have a Southern feel. But they are plain and simple, as many wish for their desks to be.

  1. What's with the lack of cool desks in the world?

  2. I really don't know. Considering how innovative people have been with the tables posted in my previous entry, it's kind of disappointing.

  3. I think they should have these desks at work places.
