Splurge/Save/Steal: The Write Desk For You

We do a lot of writing here at D Home world headquarters (surprising, I know!), which means that we know the importance of a good desk. It needs to be functional, have some storage space (but not too much to avoid clutter), and obviously, pretty. That’s what we liked about these three clean-lined and contemporary desks—they are good looking at price points for every budget.

Steal: The Trestle writing desk from All Modern, $122.06. One of our new favorite sites, All Modern, has a lot of stylish pieces on a budget. This desk doesn’t have any interior storage space, but the two side shelves will be perfect for storing pretty books, succulents, and more.

Save: The Spotlight desk in Ebony from Crate and Barrel, $599. Crossed legs? Check. (How ladylike!) Three storage trays to hide all those not-so-pretty to-do lists? Check. Beautiful ebony stain? Check, check, and check.

Splurge: The Xceptional Writing Desk from Cantoni, $1,279. Covered in beautiful dark brown leather, this desk is a place to strike deals. The X legs are an unusual shape, creating an intriguing and stylish silhouette.
