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

Furniture Ferret: Measure both the width and the depth of the space where you'd like to put a computer desk. The easiest way is to use a measuring tape. Hold the beginning of the tape down at the edge of the area, and let it run to the opposite edge. If the distance is larger than what you can stretch to with your arms, ask a friend for help, or divide what you need to measure into multiple parts. You can do this 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 reposition the tape to complete the measurement. If you want to avoid drawing on the floor, try putting down a pointy object like a pen there. Make sure to avoid dead places where the piece of furniture won't go like electric sockets. Also it may be necessary to measure the height of the space wherever the ceiling is low like spaces under the stairs.

How can I coordinate colours?

Furniture Ferret: If you have the option to choose from different colours for a computer desk that fits your space and budget, it is useful to know what the effects of the different colours are likely to be. The two things to consider for everything colour is balance and associations. Balance means that the colours should ideally be coordinated in some way, so that the room looks like a unit. Usual techniques to achieve this are considering a colour wheel, and choosing colours that are either quite close to each other, or quite far or on different thirds (for example, red-green-blue). Other colour combinations are likely be somewhat jarring just based on how our eyes and brains understand colour. 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 very different for different people. The associations can even be contradictory, making it even more difficult to use them as a guide. Blue is often connected to productivity, but also calmness, stability and even sadness. Green is undoubtedly the colour of nature, and is considered to evoke safety, luck and envy (though in other cultures envy is yellow instead). Pink is considered to evoke kindness, nurturing, romance and calmness, but it was the masculine colour of choice for clothing over many decades. Red is thought of as the colour of friendship, energy, leadership, desire and anger, which is a very wide range of feelings. But it is clear that in nature, it signals danger or importance, so it should be put next to a calm colour to allow the brain to rest. These associations point in so many directions that these guides seem to boil down to just this: pause and consider what the colour means for you.

From the history of furniture: Desks and secretaries Part 5

About 1800, and a little later, what was known as the Empire style became fashionable, and was copied by both English and American cabinet-makers from French models. An American treatment of this style, which was originated under the fostering genius of Napoleon, is seen in Figure 281, which shows a large and handsome mahogany desk with bookcase combined. The combination of bookcase and desk, as I have said, had long been a favourite one; and though this book case is quite generous in size, those many sizes smaller would often be quite large enough to contain the limited number of books which answered for a library in Colonial days.

Even the ministers had but a few volumes, and they were considered the scholars of the community. I had occasion lately to look over a collection of books which were considered fit and proper reading for both young and old, particularly on the Sabbath days, when time hung heavy on then- hands, and a few of the titles will gh'e a fair idea of the character of the library, quite typical of the period. Increase Mather's " Angela- graphia " (1696); "The Loving Invitation of Christ to the Aged, Middle-Aged, Youth and Children, from the mouth of Elizabeth Osborn, only Three Years and Nine Months Old "; Owen's " Indwelling Sin "; Bax ter's " Call to the Unconverted "; Crawford's " Dying Shots Doddridge on " Regeneration," Stod- dard's " Safety of Appearing in ye Righteousness of Christ are some of the solemn titles."

Our philosophy

We want to allow everyone to live comfortably even if they only own a small area they call home. We scour the Internet for thousands of desks, cabinets, bookshelves, storage units, beds, sofas and more by size and colour, to find just the right piece for you to go in that unused corner and turn it into some closet space, or to find that extra long bed that is still narrow enough to squeeze through the bedroom door. From the hall to the bedroom, don't live around furniture - have furniture that lives with you.

We also operate in many other regions. You can look for 130cm wide computer desks in Australia, “bureaux d'ordinateur - largeur 130 cm” in France or 52 inch wide computer and pc desks in the US.
