15 Gorgeous Black Desks You’ll Love In Every Design Style & Trend

Lifestyle expert, journalist and interior design blogger Candie Anderson of candieanderson.com has the scoop on 15 of the best black desks in the top interior design styles and trends.

 

With the new year rapidly approaching, I’ve been dreaming of different ways I can redecorate and organize my makeshift home office in my family room (for the time being). I fell in love with the beautiful Williams Sonoma Lacourte home office collection, especially their stunning black desks a few months ago, and have been obsessed ever since! I have the elegant secretary desk on my vision board, and keep thinking about how gorgeous it will look in my living room!

As someone who has worked at home for over a decade, I can honestly tell you how much better I feel working at a desk. I used to use a laptop on my sofa with no back support. I would work for hours at a time with no breaks and had back pain to go with it. Having the proper workstation, (home office essentials and inspiring books!) can make all the difference in the world when it comes to productivity, feeling great, and increasing your revenue. I credit having a beautiful desk that I love, and a comfortable desk chair for the success I’ve had and how much better I feel. There were a few times I pondered buying a new laptop so I could work from my bed early in the morning, but I know that will lead to – back pain, bad habits and never giving myself a break! I’m not willing to do that again.

If you’re ready to write that novel in 2022, organize your schedule, study for an exam, or work from home from a gorgeous new desk, you’re in luck! Today, I’m excited to share 15 of the best black desks in a variety of styles and price ranges – from trendy cane to rustic, modern minimalist, elegant lacquer, and more.  

 

Rustic Black Desks

Words can’t express how much I love Hooker Furniture! I try to feature the brand every chance I get because I own so many pieces and love them all. My French-inspired desk by the brand has long been a favorite and is definitely one I will cherish forever. I fell in love with this fabulous Hooker Furniture Bristowe Writing Desk as soon as I spotted it. Not only is it gorgeous but it is functional too! It has a center drawer that folds down, so you can use your keyboard easily and efficiently. Not only that, but the desk also comes with a Pendaflex® letter/legal file system to ensure your paperwork and receipts are organized!

I love they adorned this gorgeous desk with a gold ceramic table lamp. Your iMac or PC will look great featured on it, as will a few picture frames, a stapler, planner, and more!
