4. Traditional with a twist
The Milena recycled teak and iron writing desk from Schots Home Emporium is a sturdy little guy, with the iron frame providing the perfect structure for some serous keyboard hammering.

What is lacks in aesthetic beauty the Ergolux Lite Height Adjustable Sit Stand Desk Riser makes up for in health benefits.
