Make the "write" choice

There is something elegant and timeless about the wooden writing desk, especially in the context of trendy workspaces, modern design studios and cosy home office setups. Whether you plan to use it as your primary workspace or as a secondary space for when you need a change of scenery, our selection of writing desks includes a large variety of pieces in many different styles, so you're sure to find something that meets both your practical needs and your aesthetic desires.

Of course, writing desks can be a dramatic departure from the standard desks seen in many office environments. That's why we provide the add-ons and accessories you need to make it happen. If you decide, for example, that you want one of the heavier models available and you have a carpet, consider adding one of our large carpet mats to protect it. This is particularly important if you have insurance on your flooring (or if you're working from home!) as many flooring manufacturers will void your warranty if you aren't using protective mats.

And now that we've laid the foundations, let's explore your options...

Classic style, modern ergonomics

Your work environment has a significant effect on your productivity, and one of the most important aspects is your desk. The right desk will have space for everything you need and even an appearance that inspires you—especially if you've previously been used to the rather less inspiring grey plastic desk found in offices all over the world.

And while you may already have the perfect office chair that helps your posture and your overall comfort, you will also want to consider the very same ergonomic principles when purchasing a desk. If this is going to be your main workspace, make sure you explore all the health, safety and ergonomic regulations your business needs to comply with; there are several self assessments available online if you're not sure what you need.

You can never be too organized

Okay, so it can be tempting to make organization a lower priority when you're designing or furnishing an office space where style is the top consideration. But organization and style don't have to be mutually exclusive! In fact, the efficiency of your operation depends on you striking the right balance. That's why we've curated a collection of writing desks with built-in drawers, bookshelves, and even desk organizers. And because the best workspace is an organized workspace, some of our desks can also be purchased with bookshelves or detached drawers as part of a furniture set.

Desks that are small but perfectly formed

Writing desks are regularly used by people working with small components, such as computer circuits or sewing supplies. If that's the nature of your work, you may also want to check out our beautiful collection of credenza desks, which feature several small drawers and offer a more elegant look than most modern organization systems for small components. We're looking at you, resealable plastic containers!

We also carry a wide range of smaller desks designed specifically for laptops, allowing you to add versatility to your office or studio. Some of these desks come with a rolling set of detachable drawers, which can be moved underneath to save floor space. The result? A highly portable solution with any number of applications.

So... Why Quill?

Since we were founded in 1956, Quill has operated on the belief that a small part of your job is 100% ours, and it should be one of the simplest parts of your job. We've worked to achieve this by building one of the most extensive office furniture catalogs in the world, featuring furniture to fit every budget and aesthetic. We also offer free shipping and handling on all products over $45.

We also know that you can't always be sure a piece of furniture is right for your office until you've actually tried it, so we offer free online returns for 30-60 days on all items (unless otherwise specified by the manufacturer).

As one of our valued customers, you will also receive personalized discounts based on your specific needs, as well as free gifts with certain orders.
