How much space should I leave in front of a desk?
Placing a desk needs a larger area than just the size of the item itself, as you need about 20-30 in extra behind the chair. Reserving this space means that you will be able to easily push the chair back to stand up, or swivel to access a credenza or shelves behind you. Together with the chair, this means keeping an area 40 in deep free in front of a desk. In other words, 50 in deep desks would require a 90 in deep floor space in total. This doesn't mean that the extra room behind the chair needs to be dead space, though, as it can double as the area you need to access drawers, shelves or a filing cabinet.

From the history of furniture: Desks And Secretaries Part 2

"This table contains every requisite for a lady to dress at. The style of finishing them is somewhat neat and elegant. With respect to the manufacturing part, and what it contains, these may be learned from the piece itself when open. When the washing-drawer is in, a slider which is above it may be drawn out to write on. The ink and stand are in the right-hand drawer under the centre dressing-glass. Behind the drapery, which is tacked to a rabbet, and fringed or gimped to cover the nails, is a shelf on which may stand any vessel to receive the dirty water. Above the drapery are tambour cupboards, one at each end and one in the middle. Above the tambour at each end are real drawers, which are fitted up to hold every necessary article for dressing. The drawers in the cabinet part are intended to hold all the ornaments of dress, as rings, drops, etc. Behind the centre glass is drapery; it may be real to suit the portion below, or it may be painted to match. . .

Such a little table as that given in Figure 270 is recommended by Sheraton, as the lady witing may sit at it near the fire, from which the upper part screens her face. As may be seen the writing-shelf opens on hinges, and room for the knees is afforded by the por

"" tion which is cut out. Kidney Tables for writing (" named on account of its resemblance to the intestine JJr Vf v* called," parts of animals, so Sheraton says) were also made for writing at too, and so were some of the popular Pembroke tables, named from the lady who first de sired one of this pattern made for her.

Questions and answers

How do I measure the space to fit a desk in?

Measure the width and the depth of the floor area where you'd like to place a desk. The most accurate way is to use a measuring tape. Hold the start of the tape down at the edge of the area, and let it run to the opposite edge. Make sure the tape is not diagonal, as otherwise you get a value larger than the reality. If the distance is larger than what you can stretch to with your arms, ask someone else for help, or split 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 have measured on the floor or wall, and reposition the tape to complete the measurement. If you would not like to draw on your floor, try putting down a pointy object like a pencil there instead. You should avoid dead places where the piece of furniture won't be able to go like skirting boards. Also it may be necessary to take the height of the space and the item into account wherever the ceiling is low.

How to use color theory when choosing a desk?

If you can choose between different colors for a desk that fits your space, it is helpful to know how different colors work together. The two things to consider for everything color is balance and associations. Balance means that the colors in one's space should be coordinated in some way, so that the room looks like a unit, and not just a random collection of elements. This can be achieved by using a color wheel, and selecting colors that are either quite close to each other (as colors that are only different in lightness or intensity always go together, but slight differences in tone or hue can also be fine), or relatively far, like on opposite sides of the wheel (complementary colors like blue and yellow) or on different thirds (for example, red-green-blue). Associations with and emotions connected to colors are also important to keep in mind, and there is no shortage of lists for these from those by 19th-century Impressionist painters to modern interior design guides. It is quite probable that these emotions are cultural and learnt, which means that they can be very different in different cultures or for different individuals. The associations can even be 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 undoubtedly 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 evoke warmth, brightness, energy and attention (likely evoking the sun), except when it is dark and becomes brown, when it is said to be relaxing and comfortable. Red is thought of as 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 point in so many different directions that these guidelines all seem to boil down to just one piece of advice: pause and see what the color means for you.

Our philosophy

We aim to allow 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, sofas and more by size, to find just the right piece for you to go in that unused corner and turn it into a dressing corner, or to find that extra long sofa that is still narrow enough to squeeze through the bedroom door. From the hall to the bedroom, don't live around furniture - get furniture that lives with you.

Did you know? We are also present in many other regions. You can visit 64 inch wide desks in the US, 160 cm wide desks in Australia, 160 cm wide desks in the UK or 160 cm wide desks in Ireland.
