A functional and comfortable office is integral to your overall productivity. A cramped, disorganized desk makes it difficult to start your workday off right, even if you’ve already had your morning coffee. With more of us working remotely and juggling hybrid schedules, reconnecting to and reconsidering your work habits and storage needs is key to guiding your selection of a good desk. Here, we’ll delve into popular categories of office desks so that you can find one that works best for you.
Computer desks are engineered with function in mind and are designed to be technology forward, often featuring integrated wire management channels and deeper desktops to accommodate multiple monitors or devices. For example, the Linea desk by BDi has built-in cable channels and a modesty panel to help you organize and conceal wires, while the subtle flip-down keyboard drawer is spacious enough to store devices for charging. When paired with a file pedestal or printer cabinet and ergonomic task chair, you’ll be ready for a seamless, productive workday.
L-shaped desks are key for those wanting a flexible, expansive workspace, and are highly versatile in terms of configuration, especially when storage is built into a supporting credenza or file pedestal. An L-shaped desk can be placed in a corner, or a modesty panel can allow it to float in the center of the room for a stylish executive look. The Corridor L-desk has a roomy two-level desktop that allows you to work at any angle and maximizes space for a multi-monitor setup, all while leaving room for documents, books and more. Its built-in storage credenza has a deep file storage drawer and adjustable shelving to fit a printer or compact shredder. Or with modular-style desk lines like Vili, you can add a return to a 55-, 63- or 71-inch desk to create your own L-shaped setup.
Sit-Stand & Lift Desks
To combat the health risks of sitting too long, many professionals choose adjustable height desks. It has been well reported that going from sitting to standing throughout the day has health benefits like improving mood and circulation and decreasing fatigue and tension, all of which are beneficial for focus and productivity. Most lift desks can save multiple height settings so that, at the press of a button, you can easily alternate positions. Copenhagen’s office collection includes lift desks with a variety of finishes ranging from the Sequel 20’s satin-etched glass tabletop to the Ascent desk’s durable amber bamboo tabletop so that you can choose your favorite look.
Writing desks are space-efficient minimalist desks that are perfect for casual home office use. Typically rectangular in shape with one or two built-in drawers, writing desks offer ample workspace for a laptop or tablet, as well as storage space for office necessities. Make your living, bedroom or entryway space multifunctional by tucking a writing desk against the wall or into a corner. The Kenny desk by Skovby of Denmark, for example, has a compact 44-inch desktop and built-in USB and outlet plugs for convenience, while the Batik desk by Cattelan Italia can double as a vanity with its mirrored storage container. When paired with a side chair or small-frame office chair, you’ll have a dedicated efficient workspace that is flexible to your needs.
While many executive desks fit into the L-shaped category, there are some desks, like the Nasdaq Keramik by Cattelan Italia, that fit into a category of their own. Designed with impeccable lines and attention to detail, these executive desks have a “wow” factor and a large footprint, all while remaining highly functional with durable tabletops like ceramic marble and discrete storage. For the CEO or aspiring C-suite executive, this desk not only makes a bold statement, but also has ample room for conducting cross-desk meetings and storing monitors, documents and more.
With the right desk, you’ll be able to start your workday with a more productive, organized mindset. As you configure your office space, our team at Copenhagen is here to help you find what you need.
