Today I looked at writing desks. I also discovered that I am extremely picky about the surfaces on which I write.
No glass tops – too sterile and uncomfortable and I would find being able to see my legs at all times distracting. It would have to be wooden, but not too dark and not too light: oak wood as opposed to cherry or pine. Preferably small, but not cramped. Simple, but not too simple, because there is nothing worse than a desk which looks like a table that didn’t know it was supposed to be in the kitchen.
