The popularity of laptop computers over the past decade has meant that work can go with you wherever you are. From the bedroom to the family room sofa, your lap becomes your office, making the desk less and less important.
But that’s changing. With paperwork becoming less burdensome due to online banking and statements, a desk no longer needs to be a huge piece of mahogany that requires deep drawers and a large amount of room. Today you just need a place to dock your laptop, shop online and write thank-you cards. Design options are attractive and eye-catching because desks no longer need to include abundant storage, and today’s pieces can easily serve double duty as a sofa table, console or bedside nightstand.
