Can I get a traditional desk that will support a computer?
When you purchase a traditional-style office desk, you don't have to compromise on modern features or technological convenience. Despite their classic appearance, our traditional desks are certainly built for the digital era. Many include multiple computer-friendly features for the utmost in convenience.
Wire-management grommets keep your traditional office desk uncluttered and make it easy to route cables to a power source. Some of our models even feature a convenient built-in powerstrip, so you won't have to go very far to plug in. Another great feature to look for is a CPU holder. It keeps your CPU easily accessible and eliminates the risk of tipping it over and other potentially-damaging occurrences.
What makes an office desk traditional?
Of course, our executive desks also offer those timeless features of the traditional office. Almost all come with great pedestals which facilitate organization and keep what you need within reach. Pedestals feature some combination of box and file drawers, depending on the office desk. Box drawers are great for everyday supplies such as pens, staplers, hole punchers, scissors and much more. File drawers keep all of your important documents organized and on hand, so you don't have to get up and go to another room to retrieve necessary papers.
Many of our office desks feature locking pedestals. When all of your files and supplies are secured with lock and key, you can step out of the office without worrying about your possessions. Locking drawers ensure that everything stays where you left it so it is easy to find the next time you need it.
Some models include other convenient bonus features. Pull-out writing boards are great for meetings or anytime you might just need a bit of extra space for taking notes. Felt lining adds a luxurious stately feel to any office desk. A pencil drawer offers an additional place for extra writing implements.
what will make my executive desk better?
Great executive desks can sometimes benefit from added enhancements. Desk hutches offer extra storage space, usually in the form of cabinets. A conference overhang is great for small personal meetings and project-planning sessions. It provides the person seated on the opposite side of your desk with a comfortable arrangement for easy note-taking.
What is the best desk shape?
Office desks come in many shapes and sizes. The traditional rectangular desk is appropriate for junior executives and secretaries. An L-shaped or U-shaped desk is a good choice for a top executive such as a school principal, company president or even a clergy member with a private office. A specialized reception desk is a must-have for an administrative assistant who works in the waiting room. Its raised transaction counter enables the receptionist to have a more private workspace within the shared reception area.
Once you have determined the features you need, you can choose from a selection of elegant styles. Our office desks come from leading traditional office furniture manufacturers. For a touch of stately elegance, try the Keswick, Andover or Governors model from DMI. These executive desks have a traditional-style design with elements such as a mahogany finish, stylized moldings and antique drawer pulls. The Americana Collection from Martin Furniture has a Western charm that will give your workspace a unique appeal. The Monticello collection from Inwood Office Furniture and Bedford collection from High Point are also great choices.
