Which is the desk that will fit your home office?

Oldman Industrial Reclaimed Wood Desk

A stylish office and workspace can be the stimulation that we need to reach our work goals. For those of us that spend several hours a week sat at a desk, doing so at what that is both stylish and ergonomic is a critical factor in our choice.

And so we took to Houzz and Instagram, polling our followers on which choice they preferred for their home office furniture – the industrial desk or the traditional style desk.

We gave two choices – the ever-popular Oldman desk as the industrial option or the pedestal, traditional styled Colette writing desk.

We Asked, You Answered

The Oldman desk has always been popular and this popularity shows no sign of waning hence. Although the traditional Colette writing desk gathered a cluster of votes, it was not enough. The industrial style Oldman desk, with its strikingly stunning simplicity, came out on top.

Is one better than the other?

As with most of our polls, it is a question of your likes and dislikes. There is rarely one item better than the other and this is certainly true in the case of the Oldman desk and the Colette writing desk.

However, there are a few things you need to consider;

Smaller home office? The Oldman could be the answer

There is no denying the beauty of the Colette reclaimed wood desk but if you don’t have much space, you may find it looms too large in the space, swamping it despite its beauty.

The Oldman industrial desk is perfect as the small office desk simply because it can be made to a custom size. And because it has the open frame, it doesn’t block the room either.

Want a little individuality? The Oldman desk could be the answer

As well as custom sizes, there are custom finishes too as you can specify the colour of the Oldman desk frame too. So if you want an individually styled desk why not opt for the Oldman? 

Want to make a statement? The Colette home desk could be the answer

We understand that sometimes, you want to make a style statement by opting for a piece that has a presence in both its size and finish. The Colette writing desk is a piece of reclaimed wood furniture that is beyond exquisite. And because it is made from reclaimed wood, there is a uniqueness to each piece that makes each one a sheer delight for any home office.

Enjoy a comforting style in the home? The Colette writing desk is just one solution

For many us, it is the warmth and appeal of wood that attracts us to the traditional style. The Colette reclaimed wood desk is just one option of many in our range of desks that would meet your expectations. Perfect with a statement leather chair, the Colette writing desk is a thing of beauty and for comfort too.

Which is best – the industrial Oldman desk or the Colette writing desk?

Both offer an ergonomic platform from which to work in your home office. Both hold their own against a leather office chair and both work well with the latest tech that tends to sit atop the home office desk.

Both have a stunning beauty all of their own so your choice is a real tough one…
