Flimsy and compact home desks might, initially, seem to be ‘good enough’ for occasional home working or for use as a kid’s study desk. But, sooner or later, you’re going to realise that this is one piece of furniture that’s not worth skimping on.
You can’t beat a solid, professional desk but that doesn’t mean compromising on style. The Fallowfield Desk, for instance, is certainly solid and reliable but comes with more than a hint of rustic/industrial chic thrown in.
The pine veneer top is chunky and authentic looking, thanks to the distressed finish. And the frame certainly looks the part, being constructed from square section metal with a hammered finish.
So don’t accept second-best when it comes to home working furniture. Invest a little extra at the outset and you’ll reap the benefits over time.
