Wooden desks for home office use are wonderful because they are warm, tactile and beautiful. I’ve selected four desks with storage and three without drawers. There’s a mix of styles to suit various interior schemes and tastes from industrial to vintage, shabby chic and minimalist. The wood material used in construction ranges from pine to ash, mango, elm and reclaimed wood. The photography will also give you some home office design ideas. Let’s take a look at my seven favourite wooden desks for home office use.

Wooden Desks For Home Office With Storage
Industrial furniture lovers will lust over the Baxter Industrial Desk with Drawers. It’s made from reclaimed pine so you get that ever so attractive worn and weathered look. This wood has been combined with a dark steel tube frame. You get five drawers on the left-hand side with cut out handles. There’s also an additional drawer right under the writing top. This desk is just right for a vintage or loft interior setting. The measurements are 70cm high, 127.5cm wide and 60cm deep – £595 from Lombok.

The Reclaimed Pine Desk looks as though it has eight drawers but it really only has four because of the faux front. One drawer is above the seating section and the other three are on the side which is made up of a single, double and quad. Dressed with apothecary cup style brass handles, this piece is ideal for traditional or vintage vibe interiors. The overall measurements are 81cm high, 122cm wide and 55cm in depth – £750 from Graham & Green.

The Nayoko Desk has been inspired by Japanese minimalism. Constructed with light ash mixed and semi glossed wood with black lacquer detailing, it is smart and sophisticated. The three drawers are finished with recessed copper handles. With the angled legs, it is a graceful piece that also has a mid-century modern flavour about it. This desk would complement contemporary, retro or traditional interiors. The measurements are 76cm high, 110cm wide and 50cm in depth – £439.20 from Marks and Spencer UK.

This mango wood Sand Blasted Nordic Desk is a beautiful piece of furniture that is perfect for anyone wanting a serene workspace. It’s also great if you need to place a desk in your living room or bedroom because it doesn’t look like an obvious piece of office furniture. There are three drawers for storage which come with brass handles. This desk would suit shabby chic, rustic or Scandinavian style interiors. The measurements are 76cm high, 116cm wide and 50cm in depth – £575 from Graham & Green.

I’ll finish up with this relaxed Baya Desk. It’s an understated piece that has been handmade from reclaimed elmwood. The whitewash finish accentuates the grain and keeps the ascetics calm and neutral. At both ends of this table, there is an additional surface that can be pulled out so is really handy if you need to spread out your paperwork. This desk would be lovely in a conservatory or room which overlooks a garden. The measurements are 76cm high, 136cm wide and 76cm in depth – £595 from Lombok.

Do bear in mind that the benefit of buying a desk without drawers is that you can also use this piece as a dining table or a console if you want. If you have very limited space this is a good option. I hope you find your dream desk!
