A few years ago, I did a bit of research on computer desks and decided on this AnthroCart model:
And it's a fantastic computer desk. But its Wife Acceptance Factor (WAF) is abysmal for a few reasons:
- It's absolutely enormous
- It's black
- Its design is better suited to an office than a home
Plus, we just bought a small home in the Bay Area*, and we need to optimize for space. Looks like I'll be selling the Anthrocart.
Which means I'm looking for a smaller desk now.
I had to buy an additional desk when I moved to California, prior to all our stuff arriving. Since we have easy access to IKEA, I went with the IKEA Jerker desk.
You can see the edge of the Jerker in the bottom-most photo of Phil's dog Twiggy. There's something about the Jerker that inspires people: Behold! The shrine to the IKEA Jerker desk!
Although I really do like the Jerker-- and the name alone is worth the 99 bucks-- I'm still researching my options. What is your favorite computer desk, and why?
* Holy crap. That was written in 2004, so add another ~20% appreciation for 2005.
