desk extravaganza

last week ac and i ordered a new desk for our bedroom- i really need to stop working on a couch and he needs a place for his desktop. so i figured while i was looking for desks i would compile a list of some of my favorites on the market. it turned into 28 desk slideshow that i just posted. prices range from a target/ikea level to serious splurge status but since this audience spans that range i thought i'd include them all. ours falls in the budget range so if you're looking for a desk and would like some ideas just click here to see the full slide show. ours is the second desk in the slideshow...

I spent all weekend looking for a new desk (new school year, fresh start...) These are great finds- I'd only found a couple of them (pottery barn, offi). I especially like the one from Room and Board.

The cabinet/armoire style desks look beautiful, but I always worry that there really isn't enough leg room there to work comfortably. I think a smaller, sleek desk works well, can be easily moved, and is good when you want a view out of your window as opposed to looking at a wall.

If you are looking for a more affordable version of the Eames desk try modernwoodworks.com. I ordered a few pieces for them for my office and they are beautiful and match our "real" Eames piece from the same line.

Your slideshow made me want another desk - and I just got the West Elm Parsons in Polished White! I adore the Parsons desk - its super versatile and beautiful, especially in the white. My iMac looks gorgeous on it.

I recently started a personal blog based on my love for desks. You found some really good ones that I need to check out- thanks for the great list!

The lamps are a classic re-release of Lytegem that DWR sells (as do other retailers). I link to it from my name below.

Great day on d*s today - holy cow!

I still love my Max by Kartell with wheels and the Tolomeo with the clip by Artemide... and I would love to get a Catifa by Arper but with wheels and arm rest...

Very important to have wheels on things if you've gotta move stuff yourself!!

sure! here are some of my favorites:





but i'm always a fan of DIY desks, using two tables in an L shape or making your own from affordable ikea tabletops and legs.

good luck!

Slightly off topic, we have a white desk on oak legs which we love, but can't find a decent looking filing cabinet anywhere.Any ideas?
