Will You Be The New Home For My Work?

While we are on offices I thought we could look at some great desks that are available out there. First, possibly the coolest desks ever. Why are these desks so special? They are upholstered in grass cloth, that is right- colored grass cloth.These are so beautiful and interesting that they may have to reside somewhere in my home, like the foyer, instead of hidden in the office. Plus, if you could see the current state of my desk you would know that grass cloth doesn't stand a chance.

I am not sure if I like this desk because of the material used or because it has shelves on the sides that I would put to great use.
While those are beauties, they are not necessarily wallet friendly. These from Ikea are cute and affordable.



For the one who likes feminine touches.....
Loving these from Z. Gallerie....

Then there is this one that also comes in different colors for only $169-
Which reminds me a lot of this one for double the price.
There was a fabulous, huge, antique desk on Ebay I wanted to share but it is gone, oh well.

PS- Someone asked me about a good neutral paint color a little while ago, maybe last week, but I can't find the question. If you are reading this will you send me the question again or leave a comment? Thanks!

That grass desk is awesome, but would not stand a chance in my office either. The Ikea ones I will have to check out too.

I do love the parsons desks, but need more storage. I found a great desk at JCPenney that is a copy of a Pottery Barn desk. Love to find a deal!

I have been dying to purchase a new desk and I think you just got me to cross the line! Of course I will need a new desk to organize all my wedding plans, right? Thanks for posting these finds!

I LOVE the second one although totally impractical for me as I would surely have it marked up within a month's time!
