You’ve done well to get this far but there’s only so far you can get by sitting on the sofa.
So, you want to become a crime writer?
That’s excellent, I applaud you.
Now all you have to do is write the crime which is, unfortunately, the hard part of your journey.
I can see that you’ve styled yourself a lovely mid-century modern living room.
I’m not sure how you’ve afforded it, you’re meant to be a down-on-your-luck artiste but I don’t ask questions I don’t want to hear the answers to.
You can put your desk next to your sofa that sits on those awesome legs.
Below are some contemporary mid-century modern desks but if you want a more detailed guide, including a look at some vintage pieces, this button will take you there.
Nelson Swag Leg Desk – DWR
You know what you need more of in your life?
George Nelson and Charles Pollock knew this and set about creating the Nelson Swap Leg Desk masterpiece.
It wasn’t easy but two minds are better than one and they used swaging – a technique which, with the help of high pressure, curves and tapers a metal tube.
You didn’t know that did you?
Well, that’s why Rooms Solutions exists, to Educate, Illustate and Entertain the masses in the art of interior design.
This was all in 1958, simpler times, and when reintroduced in 2007 it was decided that cable management should be included.
The beautifully-colored cubby holes at the back of the desk are ideal for hiding your laptop from view when you’ve finally completed your assignment and want no more to do with it.
Organizer trays at the front store stationary that you’ll forget about for two years.
What a great day it’ll be when you do find that pencil sharpener though.
It’s the small things in life that make it worth living.
Acorn – West Elm
It’s time for you to inspect a traditional mid-century modern-looking desk.
For a start, it’s made entirely from wood.
The base of the desk is produced from eucalyptus wood and the drawers are acacia-veneer.
You’ve got a strong eye for detail and notice the brass metal handles attached to the drawers, not everything is made from wood – I lied.
There’s no ornamentation on this desk, one of the hallmarks of mid-century modern design.
You don’t want to be destracted from your work by elaborate appendages.
Studio Line – France & Son
Buy the Studio Line Desk if you need some discipline to get your work done.
You’ll feel like you’re in a Victorian school, waiting to get hit on the back of your head with a book unless you keep typing.
This desk is anything but boring.
How often can you say you’ve typed paragraph after paragraph about the inner workings of a paper factory at a bamboo desk accented with black powder coat steel.
Now you can everyday.
It’s solid bamboo too, there’s no plywood, MDF or particle board in sight.
Another benefit of buying bamboo, for those who are conscious about us humans destroying the planet – bamboo releases 35x more oxygen than similar trees and they grow back quickly (within 5 years).
The grain is beautiful and the hardwood will provide inspiration for years to come.
Walnut Desk from Habitables
This sold walnut wood desk from Habitables has an incredible amount of marbling in its grain, a massive help when you’re writing your next crime novel.
Don’t let anyone know or one of two things will happen.
Either you’ll be publicly shamed for not coming up with your own ideas or you’ll be thrown into a padded cell for having a ‘vigorous imagination’.
This desk has amazing reviews, it’s handmade in Spain and Manuel is a real gentleman, if something goes wrong with the order he’s extremely accommodating and does everything he can to fix it.
Nailed Desk -Yliving
Hairpin legs have finally made their way into the list with the Nailed Desk.
These ones are black iron and they’re slim.
A perfect combination.
If you need somewhere to store your files then you can in the compartment on the righthand side.
The idea behind this furniture is remaining comfortable whilst providing the perfect practicality for helping you produce your best work.
