Writing Desks


Four office desk trends that are so ‘now’

Whether you own a home business, are a student, or are just wanting to fit out your office workplace, a writing desk is an easy and affordable way to inject the latest trends into your office.

Luckily, at House of Home we provide writing desks from a range of Australia’s top brands. This means more variety, so that you can find a writing desk to suit your taste.

Not sure what office trends are currently in vogue? Read on for four office desk trends!

The Scandi office

Clean, minimal and clutter-free, the latest office inspiration comes from one of the happiest places on the planet: Scandinavia.

Desks are flat and one level and come in an array of bleached and burnished woods. Often with crossed over or pin-shaped legs, the simple nature of this desk means that it can fit seamlessly into your office or home environment. The minimalist nature of the style also ensures its longevity; this is a piece that can be easily used through different décor styles.

The minimalist writing desk looks perfect styled with a pendant light and a cute café chair.

The shabby chic

If you like your décor cute and cottage-style, a shabby chic writing desk would fit in perfectly with your décor. Inspired by the 50s, this style encompasses everything retro!

Go for a desk with swirls and embellishments, oversized knobs and pull-out drawers. Accompany this with a botanical painting for a look that will inspire your creative side every day.

Slick and sleek

If you like everything in your workplace slick, sleek and perfect, opt for a desk that encompasses this. We recommend opting for a black desk and teaming it with a matching black filing cabinet and an ergonomic office chair. How suave!

This trend is great for those who are looking to upgrade a large office, as black desks are professional looking, look great in large numbers and are a bit more forgiving of any dirt or grime accumulated on the job.

Now sit back, relax and get to business!


A coastal themed office injects that little bit of sunshine into your office all year round. For that beach life, choose a writing desk in a natural, wooden material. Rustic and burnished wood is also great for adding a coastal effect.

Top your office with a tropical flower, a scented candle and a seascape painting and allow your home office to be a place where you can chill out, but still get that job done!

Now that you’ve decided on a theme, it’s time to get shopping. Whether you are after a desk alone, or want to fit out your entire office, we have everything from desk chairs to flooring.
