The kneehole desk was developed in England in the early 18th century. Its top was supported by two banks of cupboards, or drawers, separated by a space for the legs of the person seated at the desk. Larger versions—known as library tables or partners’ desks—enabled two people to work facing each other. School desks, popular since early Victorian times, developed from the portable and lectern desks and were modified to fit current educational theories.
Many desk styles were produced in the 18th century. Small, portable "ladies’ desks" became popular in England. In France, where the habit of writing little notes became something of a social mania, the variety was remarkable. The cylinder top and rolltop were among the popular desks of the period; many featured ingenious mechanical devices. The cylinder top was a rigid, quarter-circle shutter covering the interior. The top could be slid back into the body of the desk while, at the same time, a writing surface might be drawn forward.
The first thing that you must do is evaluate your needs. Do you simply need a desk to hold your computer, or will you need a space to layout multiple pages and other items? Look at how much office equipment you have. Do you have a computer, printer, fax, phone, photocopier, scanner and more? Or perhaps you simply have a laptop and nothing more? This will be the first major deciding factor - how much desk space do you actually need? It is also important to look at the space where you will be putting your desk. Is your office large, and able to accommodate a large desk? Or do you need to squeeze into a tiny area? It is a good idea to take measurements before you go out shopping, because this will save you a lot of time in the long run.
If you wish to attach dividing screens to your desks, ensure that a good quality screen system is compatible. Screens are usually compatible with 25mm work tops and most modern desk manufacturers offer a screen system to suit their desk ranges. Dividing screens with management rails – to mount monitors or filing trays – often require return screens for stability. The quality of an office desk and the price are undoubtedly linked and costs can vary considerably depending on the manufacturer and the quality of the product. Investing in good quality office furniture which should last for many years, makes economic sense in the long-term.
