Good Questions: Do Glass Topped Desks Scratch?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Hello AT,

I’ve been seeing a lot of attractive glass topped desks recently, such as the Ava Desk (left) from Pottery Barn.

I’ve never owned a glass desk or other glass furniture before, and wanted to know your thoughts on how sensitive glass is to scratches before I invest. I would be using this desk every day for writing, drawing, and working on a laptop, and there would also be books, art materials, and other items on it

Thanks, Rebecca
