Desks are flat table surfaces used for doing work. Designed specifically for use in workplaces, home offices and schools, desks are sized for reading, writing, and/or computer use. Variations in desk designs may incorporate built-in storage above or below the work surface, while the most basic desks are reduced to just the flat table surface. Desks were traditionally built from wood, though today they are designed of metal, plastic, or glass.
