Glass Desks: for Adding a Dash of Style

By: Brooke Theresa

The use of glass furniture gives the room a very contemporary look. In earlier days, wood was the most preferred material for furniture, especially teak and rosewood, which were considered the best. Wooden furniture added a rich feel to the room. Glass on the other hand, gives a sophisticated feel to the area it adorns. Glass is mostly used in the form of glass desks, reception desks and centre tables. They are ideal for use both at home and in offices.

Glass desks can double up as a utility desk as well as a decorative piece of furniture. They look stylish and give a very aesthetic and pleasant look to any room. Keeping glass desks and other glass furnitures create an impression of a spacious, roomy and a well lit room, as opposed to heavy wooden furniture which can give the rooms a cramped and stuffed look.

Glass desks give the appearance of being light weight. They gel well with all kinds of office chairs and couches. They are extremely easy to maintain. These days one can even find scratch resistant glasses in the market. They are not so fragile as many people perceive them to be. In fact they are quite durable and long lasting. Most glass desks available these days are in modular forms that are easy to assemble and maintain, while taking much less space in a workplace.

The blue tempered or etched glass and flexi glass are the most durable form of glass that is specially used to make glass desks. They are usually mounted on or supported by a frame of wrought iron, steel and sometimes even wood. Glass desks are available in a wide range of prices that are reasonable for people's pockets.

Glass desks can be custom made to store files, and keep light computer peripherals like the modem, keyboard, mouse, etc., office equipment and even compact music systems. Glass desks kept anywhere, whether at home or in the office, display a great sense of style and creativity and compliments all types of rooms and surroundings.
