The 12 Best Desks of 2018 in Singapore

Sep 14 2018

A writing desk is a very personal piece of furniture that does not only allow you to carry out your work or study, it stores your personal items, displays your favourite pieces, and provides a space for your entertainment needs. It is a space that many are reluctant to share – it’s a sacred space!

Most good writing desks last for a decade (if not decades). But, as style evolves, we often feel the need to upgrade or align ourselves with the current trends and designs. It is always heart breaking to discard something that is still in fine working condition simply because you are bored of it and need to upgrade. Thus, choosing a writing desk that best speaks to you and your needs is very important. Investing your time and effort to thoroughly explore all the options in the market in a bid to pick one that you best connect with should be your top priority.

Over the course of several weeks, we painstakingly conducted a thorough research for what could possibly be the ideal desk that meets the desires and needs of each individual. The list we have put together should serve as a guide to finding your next best workstation. These writing desks have been crafted to ensure utmost functionality and versatility. The designs are exquisite and the materials durable.
