Good Questions: Fill My Blank Slate

Good Questions: Fill My Blank Slate

Our good friend, Gavin, just bought his first home and being the good geek that he is, his first challenge is how to setup his home office. So, he wrote us with this query:
Do you have any ideas for what sort of desks I should get for myself and fiancee? We have one desktop, and one laptop. We want room to work at a desk, as well as work on the computer. Space is not so much an issue, as we're dedicating an entire room to our office.

Got a question you need help with? E-mail us your problem, preferably with a photo, and we'll post your question here.

We immediately wanted to know the layout and while we don't have square footage, it's roughly a rectangular shaped room with two windows clustered around one corner. From the photos, we immediately notice that it gets great light, and they should take advantage of that. He was thinking a corner desk, and while we definitely think they should cluster their space around the better lit corner, we also worry about it becoming to heavily weighted on one side of the room.

We dug through the Unplggd archives, and found a bunch of great desk-related posts to get him started. But I put the question out to you, what desk do you love? What setup works well for a couple?
