A writing desk is perfect for the at-home entrepreneur, one with a creative spirit or just a place to writing your checks, pay your monthly bills and keep your to-do lists. They’re stylish, they’re functional and they’re becoming more and more popular throughout the modern world of design and decor.  Take a look at our top 5 picks for modern writing desks, in 5 of the most popular (and fun!) styles.

Contemporary

Modern Writing Desks

This Parsons Desk from Home Decorators is the perfect piece of contemporary furniture. It’ll fit nicely in a monochromatic office or even in a breakfast nook to hold the mail and keep the daily home-matters organized and tidy. It’d look rather nicely with a stark black vase and pile of classic novels sitting atop, don’t you think?

Eclectic

Wall Mounted Desk Minimalist Floating Writing Table Eclectic

We love this free-flying Wall Mounted Desk from Etsy. It’s modern enough to stay within the confines of a modern, trendy style but it’s outside-the-box and eclectic enough to have its own personality. This is perfect for a studio apartment or classic bachelor pad.

Coastal

Stanley Coastal Living Resort Writing Desk

We love a bit of coastal style, as it adds a preppy and clean point to any room. It’s delicate and charming, but also creates just enough feminine appeal to soften any space. And this particular piece looks it was made directly from the finest beach wood.

Artistic

Bleached Pine Work Table Writing

Fit for a free-spirited artist who needs all the room in the world for their creative flow, this Bleached Pine Work Table from West Elm.  Adorn this piece with lots of color, lots of feminine frills or just leave it bare for a more organic, contemporary feel.

Parisian

Danielle Fluted Kidney Parisian Writing Desk

This beautiful, Danielle Fluted Kidney Writing Desk from Frontgate is the perfect piece of furniture to finish out your Victorian-inspired home office or great room. It’s got a lot of room to spare and organize all of your necessities, but it’s also a piece of art in and of itself.
