There are many good furniture designs, a lot of different materials that compose a beautiful desk. Some of them save space in the room because a designer created a functional design that would not only deal with your problem of having too little room for a desk but also look incredible in that small space. Some of the desks are suited only for large rooms that accentuate their gorgeous shape. And then there are those desks that can transform from a small, one-man workstation to a large, conferential table. It all depends on your taste and needs, so enjoy the next 42 desk designs that we fell in love with.
1. The Covet Desk
This is one of the best desk designs when it comes to storage space. The Covet Desk by Shin Azumi holds stacks of paper and files in a neat compartment under the desk, helping you clear all the clutter on the desks` surface. Even if underneath the desk there are files and folders, this is not an impediment for a comfortable seating experience.
2. The Reindeer Desk
Gracefully resembling the shape of a deer, the Reindeer Desk by Alex Kozynets inspires purity and dynamicity.

An art form in itself, this desk offers a place for creating, writing or reading.
3. The Duplex Workspace Desk
Designer Sophie Kirkpatrick found a solution to crowded spaces with no intimacy in the form of this Duplex Workspace Desk.

13. The Track Desk
Based on an open framed ash structure that provides support for various folded steel doors, shelves and surfaces, the Track Desk designed by Mark Holmes is a contemporary desk that gives a playful vibe.

14. The Airia Desk
This design created by Kaiju Studios has a beautiful shape, perfect for any room, even a teen room: “The desk features a primary work surface and an elevated rear peripheral surface, which encloses a space for cable management.
