Just-right Scale

Although introduced in 1958, this distinctive home office desk seems to have been designed to fit today's electronics perfectly. As a computer desk, it perfectly accommodates a laptop or keyboard on the desktop with room on the second tier for a flat screen monitor at eye level. This efficient use of space allows it to fit easily into your home office, kitchen, family room, or main living area.

We've added a handy grommet to the back of the desk for streamlined cable management. Colorful cubbyholes at the back keep materials organized and at hand. One even fits a laptop computer. Two molded plastic drawers store small items.

    Smart, Contemporary Appearance

    You don't expect to see whimsical colors on a desk, but here they are: orange, spa blue, and chartreuse hardwood dividers. The desk has walnut sides, back, and stretcher frame and a white laminate top. Two unobtrusive black storage drawers hold writing instruments.

    This is a desk that will fit anywhere—in a kitchen, den, or study. The surface is just the right size for electronics, paper, and writing—even though laptop computers didn't exist at the time Nelson designed the desk. (Surface = W: 28 ½" x L: 39")
