Modern desks are really useful and also aesthetically beautiful: they can make a room good looking because they are often precious design pieces. Obviously pen writing has become an increasingly less frequent activity, but a desk devoted to the computer is, or should be, present in every home. The modern desks have evolved adapting their shape to the needs of the technology: the structure has a space for running cables (power supply, network connection and printer connection), there is a sliding panel, perfect for lean over the keyboard, a good number of shelves ideal to locate paper, printer and other objects; racks useful to keep in order the CDs, drawers for storing documents and other useful objects. There are many different styles: some modern desks recall in some way classical forms, but there are some that mix wood and metals; some adopt minimal lines, while others are so beautiful that seem to be an art piece with the added bonus of being very functional: even in chaotic situations it actually proves to be a space to locate something in the best possible way. Wood is still the most used raw material even in modern desks, with leather grafts that give greater sophistication to the cabinet and are useful to protect the table surface from scratches or scrapes that can be created when writing or working with staplers, scissors or other items that could damage the paint. Often invisible to the eye, the aluminium inserts make up the structure on which the shelf for the keyboard runs smoothly. In other models of modern desks there is also room for a printer or a scanner. Even for those who do not have much practice with the computer, the advice is to focus on this type of essential mobile lines: modern desks can give a special charm to every room.
