office-desks.jpgIf you’re ready for an awesome office desk that’s fit for a President, then you’ve certainly come to the right place! No matter whether you’re the President of a multi-million dollar company or the President of your own family, there’s sure to be a desk in this list that’s right for you!

Now, if your needs are a bit more modest than Presidential—perhaps you simply want an attractive desk that’s perfect for a bedroom, a student’s dorm room, or a small home office—then you’ll likely want something that isn’t overly big. If this is the case, then you really can’t go wrong with the South Shore Interface Desk – In Pure White. At just under 4 feet wide and just over 1.5 feet deep, this desk offers an ideal sized workspace for your computer, books, pens, pencils, and various important documents. It also has two open drawers to hide away the items you’re not currently using. Beautiful with laminated surfaces, this desk offers a great look from any angle, and its metal legs feature a satin nickel finish. Overall this desk has a very stream lined and contemporary look that’s sure to fit into the decor of any modern home. It even has a 5 year parts warranty for added peace of mind. The only drawback I see here is that the desk requires complete assembly at home (by 2 adults as recommended by the manufacturer) and there are no tools included. Overall this is a very nice desk and an exceptional value from Best Buy!

Another interesting idea, particularly for a home office, is the Prepac Floating Desk – In White. I really like the idea of a wall-mounted desk. Just think of the convenience! You can mount this desk anywhere you like, and at whatever height suits you. This is a great way to ensure that you’ll never suffer the discomfort of sitting at a desk that doesn’t conform to your own individual height. Moreover, it has plenty of shelf space for your books and other office essentials, and even has a “wire management system” to guide all of those pesky, ugly technology wires right where you want them to go—out of sight! Add to that a 5 year parts and labour warranty and you’re looking at one great little workspace for your modern home office! Of course, to me the uniqueness of the design alone makes this desk worth owning. After all, how many desks can boast both attractive form and useful function without even having any legs?? While some assembly is required, the overall simplicity of this desk means you’ll have it up and running in no time!

Holding down the number 3 spot on our list is this compact but stylish Monarch 3-Drawer Office Desk – In Natural. One of the best things about this little beauty is that its drawers (3 of them) may be placed on either the left or its right hand side. This makes the Monarch 3-Drawer equally well suited to either left or right-handed users. But this desk has also got style! The re-claimed wood look is quite a handsome design, so nobody will call your desk an eye-sore. I would personally love to own this particular desk myself. It’s just the right size to hold my laptop, a few books, and some other odds and ends on its surface, and the drawers down below are perfect for my limited files, calculator, and e-reader. I also love the fact that it’s not so big as to get in my way. This is great for folks with a smaller home or apartment. Of course, once again there is some assembly required. This, however, is a standard complaint that I have about most of these home office desks. Oh well, can’t be helped!

At the higher end of our list is the Bestar Hampton L-Shaped Corner Workstation – In Sandgranite / Charcoal. Now this is a Presidential desk! First of all, it’s a large, corner desk! This means room for more books, more papers, more everything! It also has elevated monitor placement, which is better ergonomically (if you have a PC versus a laptop) and a slide-out keyboard shelf that’s as smooth as it is quiet thanks to its ball-bearing slides. This desk also features plenty of shelf & cabinet space, a sand granite & charcoal finish (which is stylish and beautiful), and it is made in Canada besides! Some assembly is, of course, required, but you won’t mind because this desk just has so much going for it. If you can spare a corner somewhere in your home office, then this is definitely THE desk to pick up in my opinion! 

And there you have it, 4 office desks that are fit for a President! Whether your needs are great or small, complex or simple, bold or modest, Best Buy Canada is sure to have the perfect desk for you! You’ll find their complete selection of Desks & Workstations HERE, where there’s a number of unique models that add interesting variety to what I’ve discussed above. Also, stay tuned to the Plug-In Blog later in the week for my second of 2 office furniture blogs. In the next one I consider several office chairs that are sure to go great with your brand new desk. See you then!
