Desk, a table, frame, or case with a sloping or horizontal top particularly designed to aid writing or reading, and often containing drawers, compartments, or pigeonholes. The first desks were probably designed for ecclesiastical use. Early English desks derived from the church lectern were massive; after the development of printing, they gave way to smaller, portable chests with sloping lids—called writing boxes—some of which featured drawers and letter holes. The lids on most writing tables and also on the later writing cabinets (with drawers below and cupboards above) were hinged either at the front or back; those hinged at the front often were supported in a horizontal position by slides that could be pulled out of the framework, by hinged stays fixed inside the lid, or by a combination of both.
The materials used for your desks are largely a personal choice, influenced by the look you wish to achieve. Laminate desks finishes are usually slightly more expensive and offer some additional colour choices. Solid wood desks tend to be very expensive and are usually reserved for executive offices. A cheaper alternative is a wood veneer desk – a cheaper material, such as chipboard, with a very thin layer of real wood applied.
