How can one search for desks by width, height and length?
Finding desks in search engines on the Internet by size is difficult as search engines are best at finding words only.

How to measure the space to fit a desk in?
Measure the width and the depth of the space where you'd like to put a desk. The easiest way is to use a measuring tape. Hold the start down at the edge of the area, and let it run to the other edge. If the distance is larger than what you can stretch to with your arms, ask a friend to assist, or divide what you need to measure up into multiple parts. This can be done by either holding the tape down partway through and continuing running it while letting the first end go, or by marking how far you measured on the floor or wall, and start a new measurement. If you want to avoid drawing on the floor, you can position a pointy object like a pair of scissors there instead. Make sure to avoid dead places where the piece of furniture won't be able to go like decorative strips. Also it may be necessary to measure the height of the space wherever the ceiling is low like in loft rooms.

How much space should I leave in front of a desk?
Finding the right place for a desk needs more floor space than just the size of the item itself, as you will need about 20-30 in extra behind the chair. Keeping this area free means that you will be able to push the chair back to stand up, or turn around to a credenza or bookshelf behind you. So altogether you will need an area 40 in deep free in front of a desk. In other words, 40 in deep desks would need a 80 in deep space in total. This doesn't mean that the area behind the chair is dead space, though, as it can also be used as the space required to access a dresser, filing cabinet, or a bookshelf.

From the history of furniture: Desks And Secretaries Part 5

" Christ are some of the solemn titles."

There was nothing that came under the head of light literature."

I have spoken in the chapter on Chests and Cup boards of furniture made in particular locations, or at least found there, and have shown both the Hadley and the Connecticut chest. In Figure 282 I gh'e a picture "desk," of what is called the Massachusetts of which, recently, I have seen several examples. It does not seem a very com'enient piece of furniture with that leg in the middle, but its great length must have made it possible for two persons to sit comfortably at it. This one is of mahogany, with carved legs and gilt mounts, and four shallow but wide drawers.

A desk somewhat resembling this is in the City Hall, New York, and there are quite a number in Boston and its vicinity.

To return to the bookcase-desk in Figure 281. It is about eight feet high, and the Gothic treatment of the doors makes them very ornamental. One of the marked peculiarities of this style of furniture was the use of metal mounts, made usually of handsome hand-worked or cast brass, and in finer pieces, of water gilt. Our cabinet-makers never let themselves be carried away by this florid style, and contented themselves in most cases with merely making the capitals at the tops of the pillars, ornaments, and sometimes the tips of the feet of brass. You will see them in this example. The lid of the desk folds back upon itself, and above it another lid SAAings out, revealing pigeon-holes.

How to use color psychology when choosing a desk?

The color scheme in one's room can be a bit accidental, but it has considerable effect on how you feel in your home. The two things to consider for everything color is balance and associations. Balance simply means that the colors should ideally be coordinated in some way, so that it looks like a unit, and not just a random collection of elements. Usual techniques to achieve this are considering a color wheel, and choosing colors that are either quite close to each other (as colors that are only different in intensity of lightness do go together, but small differences in hue can also be fine), or relatively far, for example on opposite sides of the wheel (giving you complementary colors like blue and yellow). Other color combinations are likely be somewhat jarring just based on how our eyes and brains understand color. Associations with and emotions connected to colors are equally important, and there are many lists for these from those by 19th-century Impressionist painters to modern interior design guides. In all likelihood these emotions are cultural and learnt, which means that they can be very different in different cultures or just for different people. The associations are even often contradictory, which makes it even more difficult to use them as a guide. Blue is often connected to productivity, but also stability, calmness and even sadness. Green is clearly the color of nature, and is considered to evoke safety, luck and envy (though in other cultures envy is yellow). Yellow is always a shouty color and can mean brightness, warmth, attention and energy (likely because of the sun), except when it is dark and becomes brown, when it is said to be a sign of comfort and relaxation. Red is considered to be the color of friendship, energy, leadership, desire and revenge, which is a very wide range of feelings. But it is clear that in nature, it means danger and importance, so you probably need to put it next to a neutral color to allow the eye to rest. These emotions are so varied that these guides seem to boil down to just one piece of advice: pause and think what the color means for you.

Our philosophy

We want everyone to live comfortably even if they only have a small space they call home. We scour the Internet for thousands of desks, cabinets, bookcases, storage units, beds, tables, armchairs and so on by size, to find just the right piece to go next to the bed and turn the room into a practical office, or to find that extra long sofa that is still narrow enough to squeeze through the bedroom door. From the kitchen to the living room, don't live around furniture - choose furniture that lives with you.

We also help customers in many other countries. You can visit 135 cm wide desks in Ireland, 54 inch wide desks in the US, 135 cm wide desks in Australia or 135 cm wide desks in the UK.
