Retro-style desks for sale at Vinterior

The home office wasn’t too significant a couple of decades ago. But today, many of us work at home for 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 writing 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. Fun and playful, our desks are sure to inspire when you hit the 2pm lull in your working day.

Retro wood desks
