Need a place for your desktop computer but want it work well in your traditional style home office? If you love antiques and your home is filled with old world good looks you don't have to settle for a utilitarian looking computer desk. There are lots of home office desks that combine style and functionality with the look of antique desks.
The Kidney Shaped Computer Desk by Coaster Furniture is a beautiful antique reproduction with a flip-down keyboard drawer added in the center and a place to store your CPU out of sight. It's finished in Deep Brown Cherry and is detailed with parquet inlaid fronts on the four convenient drawers. This desk would look great in a formal home office.
Home office desks haven't always had the best reputation for offering great interior decorating style, but that's changing. Computer desks, especially those designed with laptops in mind can definitely make a contribution to the good looks of a room.
We discovered the Riverside Medley Laptop Computer Desk that doesn't really look like a desk at all. Perfect in a home office, family room or a bedroom, this piece of furniture would work well with a contemporary handmade style interior. It's made of distressed Mindi hardwood and veneers, accented by woven raffia on the drawers and shows off stylish twisted metal legs and marble marquetry on top. This is one desk that doesn't sacrifice beauty for functionality.
