Retro office desks


The home office wasn’t too significant a couple of decades ago. But today, many of us work at home, or at least for part of the week. Nowadays, the home office desk is a vital part of the home. In the past, buying a desk meant purchasing something primarily functional but not particularly pleasing to the eyes. But why shouldn’t a home office feature something more fun, like a retro computer desk? After all, many of us spend a lot of time working at home, so it makes sense to surround ourselves with furniture pieces that are both functional and attractive.

Choosing a retro office desk is a great way to inject some excitement into a room that can otherwise be quite dull. Fortunately, we have plenty of retro desks available. They’re all sourced from small vintage shops and independent makers from the UK and beyond. With plenty of pieces from past decades, there are a ton of choices when it comes to funky and fun home desks. Our collection of retro desks vary greatly – we have pieces made from teak from the 1970s along with Danish styles dating back to the 1950s.

Retro wooden desks


A wooden retro style desk adds a classic touch to your home office, living room, or den. Whether you’re seeking a streamlined writing desk or a larger administrative unit, our collection of wooden desks inspires productivity and enthusiasm in your work. Some retro desk designs feature filing cabinets, too, for extra storage. These styles often have attached hutches, giving you a desk and storage compartment all in one unit.

Standing retro wooden desks allow you to work in a linear position, enabling you to stretch your back. When choosing an office chair for your retro wooden desk, you may want to select another piece of retro furniture for even more character and atmosphere. Browse our wide selection of vintage office chairs and see which takes your fancy. If you work many hours in your home office, you may want to find an office chair that’s adjustable so you can work ergonomically.
