Contemporary Office Desks
Modern office desks come with a variety of user-friendly features. From L-shaped desks to reception desks to executive desks, we offer high-quality options that will fulfill your needs. Many of our models come with Hertz Furniture's exclusive extended warranty so you can be sure to enjoy your new furniture for many years to come.
What kind of storage can I get in an office desk?
Executive desk pedestals come with some combination of box and file drawers. If you need to keep a lot of extra supplies on hand, box drawers are very helpful. File drawers are great if you want to organize your papers in the most accessible fashion. Rather than having to get up and go to the file cabinet, which might be in another room, you can simply reach over and get what is needed. Most pedestals include both box and file drawers.
In addition to the drawer configuration, there are other factors that vary among desk models. Pedestals come in either full length or ¾ length. Many options feature centrally-locking pedestals. They keep your supplies and documents secure, but are easy to open with a single key when necessary.
What desk style is best for my office?
The contemporary office desk comes in many different shapes. There is the classic rectangular desk, which is often available with a bow front as well for a slightly larger work area. For the busy executive or administrator who needs significantly more space, there are the U-shaped and L-shaped desk options. These are optimal choices for a school principal or company president who has a large private office and needs space for electronics and accessories. They are also good for a shared office space because they section-off a personal area within a larger open room. The U-shape is available in a classic design or with a peninsula, which is great for conferencing or intimate strategy-planning sessions.
Do I need to get a special reception desk?
In addition to executive desk configurations, we also offer a selection of reception desks. Raised transaction counters are ideal for administrative assistants in an open reception area. They supply an excellent place for distributing informative literature and filling out forms, while providing the receptionist with a more private workspace.
What is the best desk for cubicles?
Many companies and institutions have a shared workspace that is divided amongst a number of employees. We offer a number of space-saving options that enable multiple people to enjoy a personal workspace within a shared area. We offer two-person desks which are constructed in a continuous side by side style as well as back to back double desks which are separated by a hutch. For cubicle-style multi-person workstations, there are connected desks for four or six.
What should I think about when getting an executive desk?
Many factors vary across contemporary office desk designs. Legroom varies according to the size of the work surface as well as the configuration of the pedestals. Executive desks come in a number of different surface materials. These affect the aesthetic appearance as well as the durability of the desktop. A conference overhang makes an office desk more accommodating for small meetings. It provides the guest seated on the opposite side of the desk with a more comfortable space to sit and take notes.
How can I accommodate a computer at my desk?
In this day and age, every modern office desk has some kind of computer, and often additional electronics as well. Therefore, every desk must be evaluated for its ability to accommodate your digital needs before purchase. Most contemporary office desks feature wire-management grommets which keep your work surface uncluttered and make it easy to route wires to outlets. For the most computer-friendly option, consider a model with a concealed CPU holder and built-in power strip. Many desks also offer the convenient option of a pull-out keyboard drawer for ergonomic typing.
For a fully coordinated office, you can match many of our executive desks with full office furniture collections. We have stylish contemporary office furniture collections including the Pimlico and Belmont collections from DMI as well as the CSII, Del Mar and Napoli collections from Mayline. We also have office desks from other leading manufacturers including Global and High Point.
