Top 10: Writing Desks

Modern Scribe. Inspired by our recent post on Marc Newson's Riga Desk (but inhibited by the price) we've been inspired to start a Top Ten list of writing desks. We kept them on the small size (ignoring Carlo Mollino's Cavour Desk — see we snuck it in!) and we've broken it down by price range...

High-end
• Marc Newson's Riga Desk for Cappellini.
• Marcel Wanders' Two Tops Secretary for Moooi.

Middle-of-the-road
• Room & Board's Camelot.
Piu Desk for DWR.
• George Nelson's Swag-leg Desk.
• Franco Albini's Albini Desk for Knoll.
• Eames' Desk Unit.

Totally Accessible
• Eric Pfeiffer's Wave Desk for Offi.
• West Elm's Parsons Desk.
• Crate & Barrel's Leaning Desk...

Personally, we own West Elm's Parsons Desk, but we're infatuated with the Nelson Swag-Leg Desk.
