From the history of furniture: Desks And Secretaries Part 4

\\ 1'V 1 "" II ^H board or desk. This door is made to hide itself in the end rail as much as possible, both for look and secrecy; for which reason a turn-buckle is not used, but a thumb-spring, which catches at the bottom of the door, and has a communication through the rail, so that by touch of the finger the door flies open, owing to the resistance of a common spring fixed to a rabbet which the door falls against. This cupboard can only be placed in these pieces of furniture which are square at the ends."

Another desk, somewhat on the order of the bureau- mm desk, is given in Figure 278. This I should call a side board-desk, for the deep drawer lets down with a brass arm, and discloses a desk within, with its proper com plement of drawers and letter-holes. The date of this piece is doubtless about 1800, for it is a composite style, and I doubt not that it was made here. It has some very choice inlaid work, both about the mirror and the deep drawer, which the photograph does not reveal. There is good solid carving, too, but for all that the piece is not attracth-e. It is interesting simply as a rather unique specimen.

Hoav much superior in elegance the next piece appears (Figure 279). This is a writing cabinet on a Sheraton model, the upper part being designed for books, and the lower containing a desk and drawers. Obseiwe the handsome curves in the glassed doors, and the purity of the ornamentation on the top. This book case-desk is of mahogany, and in every way an admir able example. In Figure 280 is given one of the choicest specimens of massive construction shown. I do not think it is as old as many of the serpentine- front pieces are, from the style of the interior fittings of the upper part. It is, no doubt, a product of the eighteenth century, however, and in splendid condition, the whole piece being of dark and solid mahogany, making the desk immensely heavy. The carved flames or torches on the top, the shells on the front of the desk and in the inside are finely done; and it is such a desk as you would expect to belong to one of those maritime princes whose ships roved every sea, bringing home to their Owners in Salem the richest cargoes to be found. See the shelves for the great ledgers, wherein were entered the accounts of all the argosies which had come safely home; and think how many times the owner, bending over the writing-shelf, must have entered the long col umns of pounds, shillings, and pence on the side of profit.

Questions and answers

How much space do I need to leave in front of a desk?

Finding the right place for a desk needs more space than just the size of the item itself, as you will need about 50-76 cm extra behind the chair. Keeping this area free means that you can easily push the chair back to stand up, or swivel to access a cabinet or bookshelf behind you. So altogether you will need an area 100 cm deep free in front of a desk. For example, 90 cm deep desks would require a 190 cm deep space in total. The extra room behind the chair doesn't need to be dead space, as it can also be used as the room required to access a dresser, filing cabinet, or a bookshelf.

How can I coordinate colours?

If you can choose between different colours for a desk that fits your space, it is helpful to know what the effects of the different colours are likely to be. The two things to consider when it comes to colours is balance and associations. Balance means that the colours 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 colour wheel, and selecting colours that are either quite close to each other (colours that are only different in lightness or intensity always go together, but slight differences in tone can also work), or quite far, for example on different halves of the wheel (complementary colours like red and green). Associations with and emotions connected to colours are equally important to keep in mind. In all likelihood these associations are cultural and learnt, which means that they can be quite different in different cultures or 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 colour of nature, and is considered to be connected to safety, luck and envy (though in other cultures envy is yellow instead). White can be connected to peacefulness, innocence, cleanliness and emptiness, and, for example, mourning in India. Red is considered to be the colour of friendship, willpower, leadership, desire and revenge - a very wide range of feelings. But it is clear that in nature, it signals danger or importance, so you probably need to put it next to a neutral colour to allow the eye to rest. These associations point in so many different directions that these guidelines all seem to boil down to just one piece of advice: pause and consider what the colour means for you.

Our philosophy

We aim to allow everyone to live comfortably even if they only own a small area they call home. We search the Internet for thousands of desks, cabinets, shelves, shoe cabinets, beds, tables, armchairs and more by size, to find just the right one for you to go next to the bed and turn the room into some closet space, 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.

Have you heard? We also help customers in many other countries. You can visit 100 cm wide desks in Australia, 100 cm wide desks in the UK, 40 inch wide desks in Canada or 40 inch wide desks in the US.
