SF Good Questions: Is My Jens Risom Dining Table Too High to Be a Desk?

AT:SF, I have a handsome Jens Risom dining table. Is it my imagination or is it too high to be a comfortable desk? This one is 31 inches high. What is the recommended height of a desk? I am a high school English teacher and need a lot of space for grading essays, sorting them out. . . I don't need a dining table per se since I live alone.

GregorSamsa,

Desks can be anywhere between 28" and 32". We think that what will make the real difference regarding your comfort is the height of your chair.
