There are certain pieces of furniture that I think are underrated. The writing desk is one of them.
Having a writing desk, or any slim-lined desk in a living area of the home is an easy luxury. The writing desk compared to a tanker desk, the utilitarian computer desk, or executive desk is elegant, often with slim tapered legs and fits nicely into a living space.
It is a place to read or write Christmas or birthday cards to your loved ones. It is also a place to talk on the phone while conducting household business, such as completing forms or to pull the laptop away from the sofa/TV set-up.
You may say you don’t have room or need for such desk. Of course only you know your situation, but I bet a lot of people would be very surprised by the benefit of a writing desk; and they are often small enough to fit into a bedroom corner or nook.
